Shimano/G.Loomis Baitcasting Combo

Anglers wanting to put two of fishing’s great names together will get a chance this month, with G.Loomis and Shimano matching up with a limited-edition bait casting 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 Shimano 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.
