“SECRET” ROD ON THE HORIZON AT G. LOOMIS….
As a Shimano/G. Loomis/PowerPro/Jackall newsletter recipient you are now the first to know about a totally new rod series in the works with G. Loomis. We can’t say too much here, but the release date will be sometime in the first quarter 2015.
The newly designed rod blanks will be made in Woodland, Washington. The rod will be completely assembled in Woodland as well. With so many of today’s rods made overseas, G. Loomis is still totally dedicated to only offering USA made rods. We think that’s noteworthy.
It’s still wrapped in mystery as far as pricing and models, but we can tell you it will blow you away! In the mean time, take a look at the new Jackall Pompadour. We haven’t been this excited about a lure in a long time!
Japanese bass baits are nothing new. They’ve been here for well over 30 years. You all know the names of the “usual suspects”. No need to name them here. Up until now most of these Japanese lures had a reputation for high quality but also one of being very expensive. So now here comes Jackall into the fold. And just what makes the Jackall line of lures and plastics so special?
We can think of quite a few reasons, but for now let’s just talk about a couple. First and most important is what we all buy lures and plastics for in the first place – their ability to attract a bite. Jackall lures and plastics do a great job here. Could be because they look different, but we believe that it’s because they are well engineered and actually work as intended right out of the box (or bag). No tuning necessary. No adjusting. Nope, just tie on and fish.
This may sound simple, but more often than not it isn’t. Lures often need “tuning”. This is where you have to bend a hook, twist a split ring, turn a connecting eye, etc. so the lure runs true. Plastics can be even more problematic due to how they’re made at the factory. Sometimes a mold isn’t filled properly so the bait doesn’t work as intended. Or the color is not right. Or the hook doesn’t go in without some distortion. This simply doesn’t happen with Jackall.
Second thing in our mind is Jackall lures and plastics are reasonably priced given the quality and their ability to catch fish. All of us have seen Japanese lures that sell for over $20. Many closer to $30! If you’re like us it can ruin your whole day when you tie on one of these $20++ lures only to have it break off in the first hour or so in the morning. Let’s face it, $20+ bucks is a lot of dough. Jackall lures are not cheap, but given the quality they really offer decent bang-for-the-buck value and all are well under that $20 threshold. And most importantly, they will catch fish, not just fishermen!
Keep an eye out for the new Jackall Pompadour. It is sure to be a fish catching machine that will give the fish a unique look. Be sure to stay tuned and please ask your friends to sign up for our newsletters so they won’t miss out.
