You have no idea what you have done by asking that question. Grab some popcorn and hold on.
Personally I'd go for the shimano.
Have you had a look at Abu reels?

Personally I would go for the Tour Mg. I have seen them at Ganis for a very good price. As this appears to be a worming rig I would go for a 7.0:1 ratio.

At 5.4 ounces this will definitely be my next buy. You have to match it with a rod. A slightly tip heavy rod might balance out better with a heavier reel!

Those GL2's are not light weight rods. I would suggest a slightly heavier reel to balance it out. Maybe a Curado 200I HG (7.2:1 ,30 IPT and 7.4oz)). Best would be to try a couple of reels on the rod at the tackle shop and see which one balances out best. As long as it is a Shimano. :blue-badgrin:

If the G-Loomis is slightly heavier you can also look at something like a KVD Tour. It is the older model (used to go for $299 on US sites) but I have seen it advertised locally for around R1200-R1300. I have 3 of them in all three ratios and it is an absolute machine of reel.

If you cannot get a Shimano set up then I suggest you get a ........... Shimano set up. :blue-badgrin:
