I have no idea if Shimano has changed the action and power of the rods after fully taking over, but you can get blanks designed by Gary Loomis from North Fork Composites:

[northforkcomposites.com]

Also, when the MHX line originally launched at Mud Hole, a number of their blank designs were listed as replacements for Loomis powers and actions including the MB843. While I've never fished the Loomis version, I do have the MHX MB843 in metallic silver, and it's a very good general purpose mid modulus bass rod.

Jeff,
There is guite a difference in the blanks from GL2 thru GLX, frankly I thought the 783 was a superior design for bass.
