GL2 Aussie Baitcast Rods
G-Loomis has long been an iconic name among the fishing fraternity, synonymous with quality fishing rods and unrivalled by any competition. G.Loomis rods are carefully crafted tools, designed specifically for a chosen style, purpose or species.
Having recognised the need for a more definitive and dedicated range of rods outside the U.S market, G-Loomis, in conjunction with Shimano Australia, set out to create a new GL2 family, specifically for Australian conditions and fishing styles.
The first model (GL2 8500L ESP) in the series set the precedent as an instant success, winning the ‘Best Rod of Show’ at AFTA 2011. The continuing task of building a rod for several styles of fishing has always been considered an insurmountable task requiring, a high level of compromise. The resulting metallic maroon series consists of uniquely designed, crisp graphite blanks, forgiving enough for the harsh Australian climate.
For comfort, a shortened split butt configuration was incorporated which also meant a reduction in weight and allowed the addition of a custom rubberized fighting butt section. All rods come with Fuji aluminium oxide guides and reversed VSS Fuji reel seat carry custom cork grips (excl. GL2 684 BC MH which has Fuji ACCS reel seat).
