Berkley NanoFil did NOT win either Best New Monofilament or Best New Braid at EFTTEX 2011. Berkley did win ‘Innovation of the Year’ with NanoFil though. How so?
“Not a Mono. Not a Fluoro. Not a Braid.” That’s how the advertising video for Berkley NanoFil ends. Okay, so apart from ruling Berkley out of every line award at this year’s tackle shows, what does NanoFil mean to us, the Continue reading “Berkley NanoFil – Innovation of the Year EFTTEX 2011”
Power Pro fought off stiff competition to be voted Best Braided Line at the recent European Fishing Tackle Trade Exhibition (EFTTEX) with new Power Pro Super 8 Slick braid.

2011 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 Continue reading “Daiwa 2011 | New Tackle – New Logo”
