New Shimano Stella for 2010

Posted by Editor On March - 21 - 2010

It's always a good year when Shimano bring out a new Stella - the flagship fishing reel in their range. Luckily for us, 2010 is one of those years. Introducing the new Shimano Stella featuring X-SHIP (Extra Smooth & High Power).

As you can see, the reel has been aesthetically modified once more and is as beautiful as ever. I'm sure this will be enough for some anglers to part with a large chunk of change, however Shimano have added so much more in this new model. At the heart is X-SHIP. The 'Extra Smooth' appears to come from improved bearing placement on the main shaft. The reel also features Shimano's Full Floating Shaft. The 'High Power' is driven by a new design with a larger Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Editor On February - 27 - 2010

"Tackle Fanatics is an exciting new website launching in April 2010 which will offer the UK's biggest range of quality used tackle!"

That's a bold statement when you consider the success of eBay but it's exactly what the company behind have set their sights on. We came across Tackle Fanatics at The Big One tackle show in Farnborough and I must say, from a presentation perspective, Craig and Matthew (the gentlemen behind the new venture) they have it spot on, with a fresh and vibrant looking brand.

The Big One Tackle Show 2010 – a great success

Posted by Editor On February - 22 - 2010

I attended The Big One fishing tackle show in Farnborough, on Saturday 20th February and hats off to Fishface Promotions - it was a cracker!

I haven't seen any official visitor numbers but at times during the morning it was absolutely ram packed - hundreds and hundreds of anglers all looking for a bargain or two and taking advantage of the excellent displays and seminars by the tackle manufacturers and angling celebrities that attended.

Parking was easy and as promised there was a nice touch in that for anglers that overindulged themselves on the discount tackle (especially heavy ground-bait, pellet and boilies) there were a number of Read the rest of this entry »

2010 is already proving to be a great year for exciting new fishing tackle. The latest in a growing list of hot tackle items to be launched this year is news that Daiwa have created a brand new Certate - one of the best spinning reels in the world.

This new feature is straight out of sci-fi. Based on NASA technology, Daiwa have capitalised on a new material - magnetic fluid. Used for fuel management in space ships, Daiwa have adapted this latest technology as a waterproofing agent. The Read the rest of this entry »
