Gloomis are now distributed in Australia by Shimano, we have a been using these rods for as long as we can remember are very proud to continue using these amazing rods. We were recently introduced to the Australian GL2 Series which has been specifically designed with our fishing conditions in mind. These things are incredible. Keep an eye out for them in our future productions. (pictured above is part of the GLoomis display at AFTA, below is some of the Australian Series). J&J
