To me, the larger the number, the heavier they feel. I have two IM 6's and love them both.

For those who don't know, the IM series is Cabelas graphite rod series.

IM6=36 million modulas graphite, IM7=42 million modulus, IM8=49 million modulus graphite G-loomis IMX is 49 million modulus graphite that make up the rod shaft or blank, These numbers are approximations. The more modulus the higher the sensitivity and the lighter the weight of the blank but with the lightness you also begin to run into a brittleness problem as well. The average fisherperson won't be able to tell the difference between IM6-IM8 other then the lighter weight of the blank. A more seasoned fisherman will love the extra "feel" that they get from one rod to the next. Look to the major rod manufactureers for higher quality and consistency with regards to blanks, reel seats and line guides. Quality can vary between rods and different lines within a manufacturer. A one piece rod will give you better feel then a 2 piece rod. Hope this helps. I'm sure maybe rodmaker or someone else will chime in on this too but that is my basic understanding in a nutshell. Action is an important part of the equation too because you want the right rod for the job you want it to do.

This is what I have for the numbers. Don't ask me where I got it-off some website a few years ago.

GLX - 65 million modulus

IMX - 55 million modulus

GL3 - 47 million modulus (IM8)

GL2 - 42 million modulus (IM7)

IM6 - 38 million modulus

Standard Graphite - 33 million modulus

Looks to me like you pulled that info off G-Lommis's website. They are the names of thier blanks.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, this may be my last weekend on the ice South of Hwy 210 . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
