    G Loomis and Shimano teamed up to offer bass anglers one hell of a deal. Anyone else buy the G Loomis IMX Pro limited edition / Shimano Bantam MGL combo!? They made 1200 of these rods. Some places offered this combo for 400$ For Black Friday, while some stores are still offering this deal currently. What are your thoughts on this deal?

    I paired my IMX with back then the lightest reel made the Abu garcia revo Primerer makes for a good day casting every 30 seconds drift fishing in a river. I still have the reel on the rod.

    Yes, however Shimano does not dictate to Loomis. They are very much individual companies. Same with Power Pro and Jackall. Yes, Shimano owns all of them and all of them are amazing companies. Teaming up is the correct wording.

    Consolidation has it's pluses and minuses. And I'm a shimano fan so it's not a bad thing from my perspective.
    I m glad that G Loomis has been left alone. Their stuff is top shelf. let's hope it stays that way.
