G. Loomis Report

Aaron Martens

One of the most consistent anglers in the professional bass fishing ranks, noted angler Aaron Martens will be relying on G. Loomis’ complete line-up of IMX-PRO and NRX bass rods in 2020.

Martens left Enigma to join the Loomis Pro Staff team.

The former Bassmaster Elite Series pro who now competes on the Major League Fishing Bass Pro Tour, Martens notes that similar to the performance he has with his Shimano Metanium and Stella reels, he’ll be on the water with rods consistent in performance and that can enhance his known natural fishing ability.

“I’ve been a lifetime Shimano reel fan and came to realize I needed that same on-going quality, technology, innovation and performance in my fishing rods,” Martens said. “With the G. Loomis brand being part of Shimano and being aware of how they have taken rod manufacturing to a next level, I had an easy decision once they asked me to fish with all the high-end G. Loomis rods.”

With G. Loomis’ expanding rod line-up for the bass fishing market, ‘having someone with Aaron’s credentials from both his fishing expertise and tackle knowledge shows bass anglers our commitment to continue to grow the sport,” notes Blaine Anderson, field marketing manager for all the Shimano brands, including G. Loomis.

While fishing the technique-specific IMX-PRO, GLX, NRX and Conquest bass rods, Martens will interact with G. Loomis’ product development staff on future rod introductions. “Knowing the special passion Aaron has for bass fishing and quality tackle, we absolutely will want to rely on his input,” said David Brinkerhoff, rod product engineer at G. Loomis.
