iTackle Magazine from Bauer

Posted by Editor On September - 1 - 2011

iTackle MagazinePublishing giant, Bauer have just released a new digital magazine on fishing tackle - and what's more - it's free!

iTackle magazine comes from the makers of Angling Times and being digital offers the fisherman much more in terms of a tackle review than traditional press.

The pilot issue of iTackle is out now (get it here) and features Shimano's new Aero Technium Mgs carp reel that we featured last month, as well as the new Middy 14.5m MTDI Shock Core Fusion XP45 pole and the feature-packed Nordik Tackle Octbox Mk2 seatbox.

We wish Bauer all the best with iTackle. We like it a lot. The oscillation rate demonstration on the Mgs is fantastic.

Australia seems to be ahead in this process every year. Check out this promotional video from Shimano Australia for 2012: Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Editor On August - 18 - 2011

Daiwa Infinity QI've done this a couple of times and a mate, once more. So now's the time to share the secret in getting hold of the superb Daiwa Certate dirt cheap.

Search eBay for a Daiwa Certate - especially in the UK - and if you didn't already know they were high price items, you might get a shock. We're certainly talking upwards of £200 plus postage for these spinning reels. The price is justified. Arguably the Certate is Daiwa's answer to the Shimano Stella. In fact some anglers prefer the finesse of the Certate over the Stella.

In time the Daiwa Certate has earned a following. In an auction market such as eBay that generally means fair pricing and Read the rest of this entry »
