Well since Gary sold G. Loomis to Shimano he is now working with Temple Fork on a new rod series for them. I just checked these rods out at BPS and they are sweet! Temple fork does have a new swimbait rod in the Gary's Tactical Series Rods that looks great and only $149.00, but BPS doesn't carry it so I couldn't check this rod out.
