The SAR1265C GL2 is one of the best rods I have ever used. Great for salmon trolling with dropper weights. You don't miss fish with this rod. Get is on ebay for $270.

Yes those SAR 1265's are great rods, I have a TH 1265 that is almost the same. They are great for trolling Tillamook for fall Kings. I am looking for the little brother though, don't need all that power for spring fish up here in the gorge! There is nothing more exciting then fighting a large fish on a lighter rod.

I have used G Loomis rods exclusively until last year
(gear and fly) when I purchased a couple of Sage fly rods. I have been happy with both but am still more pleased with the Loomis rods. For gear I use G Loomis SAR 1363c and have been very happy. I find the extra length to be very handy when float fishing. I do not honestly believe you can say one is better over the other. It just comes down to personal taste. I do not think you would be unhappy with a Loomis product.

SAR 1084 C in GL2 is a fabulous choice, My clients have landed many salmon and sturgeon on the 1084, even a few oversize sturgeon.

Those SAR1084c's are some of the most versatile Salmon rods I own. They work for sturgeon, but are a little light in the backbone. My Loomis 10-40 8' BBR is a awesome keeper sturgeon stick though and it fishes up to 10 oz without a problem.

If I had just one rod for salmon and sturgeon it would be a 1084.

the SAR 1084c GL2 works in a variety of situations. Trolling, mooching and bobber for salmon and shallow water sturgeon, this is a great rod. I've used this rod at Tillamook with spinners and herring with weights over 8 oz. and the rod worked great. For shallow sturgeon tossing 4 to 8 oz weights this rod should work excellent.

The 1084 also gets my vote as a good choice, it is a G loomis classic as it is very versatile.
