This premium combo is a limited edition
Anglers wanting to put two of fishing’s great names — Shimano and G.Loomis — together will get a chance this month. The two brands are matching up with a limited-edition baitcasting combo.
Shimano has owned G.Loomis for more than 20 years. But the two companies have never matched a top-drawer G.Loomis rod with a Shimano reel, like the combo that will match a Bantam MGL reel with a G.Loomis IMX-PRO 863C JWR rod.
The Bantam MGL reels offer three different gear ratios in right- and left-hand retrieves, with a super-light MGL spool that makes for better casting distance. The G.Loomis rod is a medium-heavy, 7-foot-2 model with Fuji K-Frame guides and a tapered, full-cork rear grip, good for a wide range of fishing functions.
The combo should be in a number of tackle shops by mid-November, just in time for Christmas shoppers.
MSRP is $499.99.
