I have a g-loomis pro-green heavy 7’4” fast action 10-17lb and use a sustain 5000 with it, I found 1 problem with it, it was tip heavy which is not that good when salmon fishing several hours at a time. found in America these rods come with a choice of 11 butt lengths. I had 100mm added to the butt and it is now perfectly balanced and great to use I have found I don’t need as much effect to get distance and is not tiring when doing a solid days fishing. the reel is good after 1 little hiccup when it was returned for fixing after 3 days use, had a part assembled the wrong way round.
