Daiwa 2011 | New Tackle – New Logo

Posted by Editor On November - 10 - 2010ADD COMMENTS

New Daiwa Logo2011 is a big year for Daiwa UK. Daiwa has a new logo and a fresh new brand image that it wants to align in every country - we first saw the release of the new Daiwa logo in Australia in December 2009. As you can see, it's a radical change from the logo we've all grown up with. I'm sure it won't be to everyone's favour but I really think it's a great move from Daiwa. While I agree that this is a gamble in terms of brand recognition, I think the new look and feel is ... Read the rest of this entry »

Snowbee Deep Blue 12 ReelIn keeping with our recent report that sea fishing tackle is a growth area this year, Snowbee had a lot of new items for the saltwater angler at the recent Tackle & Guns trade show. They have clearly invested a lot of time in this discipline, building out their Deep Blue brand.

I particularly liked the look of two new multiplier reels; both high quality, CNC machined lever-drag boat reels, in a similar design to something like the ... Read the rest of this entry »

TF Gear Force 8 – 6 & 7 Series Multipliers

Posted by Editor On October - 29 - 2010ADD COMMENTS

TFGear Force 8 MultipliersIs it an ABU... is it an Akios... no, it's the 'new' TF Gear Force 8 6-series and 7-series multipliers.

Looking familiar? Thought so. You could be mistaken for thinking that these reels are Akios, but the coloured spools and handle give away that this is a new product. Information is slim on the ground but looking at the specifications over on Fishtec, these reels are pretty much identical to the Akios reels we reported on last month.

To add to the confusion, it looks like Akios have poached Alan Yates as consultant. Or perhaps Akios and TFG have come to some kind of arrangement and this is just a re-badge.

The 6-Series reels are the traditional 6000 size multipliers favoured by beach anglers, while the 7-Series is a 7000 size, suitable for light boat work, uptiding and heavy shore fishing. There are a range of models to suit. The 6-Series features an anodised, red handle and spool, whilst on the 7-Series they are blue. These slight cosmetic alterations are all that set the TFGear Force 8 reels apart from the Akios range.
