Featured Article: Show Coverage


New products at the 2007 International Sportsmen's Exhibition, San Mateo, CA (continued)
 

Pflueger: It is no secret that Pflueger is the high end brand for Shakespeare and with products like the President baitcaster the company is certainly moving up in the world. Shakespeare has plenty to celebrate this year, including the 30th birthday of their top selling Ugly Stick rods. In fact the company is selling a commemorative Ugly Stick fishing kit that comes complete with a pair of X-Tools pliers. But what we were most interested in at the show was the arrival of the company's new flagship spinning reel...the Supreme.

 


Jack shows us the new Supreme

 

The Supreme will finally be available in March, so is it worth the wait? We think so. The reel features a magnesium body and rotor, 9 stainless steel bearings, and a double anodized machined aluminum spool that is seriously ported for weight reduction. The 8030Mg model weighs in at only 7.4oz.

On top of all that the Supreme makes use of a machined aluminum handle, a sealed drag system, and a "sure-click" bail for greater reliability. The finish on these reel is pretty bold, and perforations are everywhere.

 


That sure is a lot of porting

 

So how much will this magnesium 10 ball bearing reel set you back? Try only 100 dollars. That is the best deal for a magnesium reel on the market. 

 


Even the handle and junction are ported

New Disney themed fishing tackle from Shakespeare

 

Also new is an agreement between Shakespeare and Disney to release co-branded fishing tackle for kids. What better way to get kids into fishing than with their favorite Disney character themed rods?


Frank Murata shows us the newly redesigned AccuDepth line counter reels

Daiwa: Like Shimano we previewed the vast majority of their new 2007 offerings at ICAST, but Daiwa pulled out a wild card at the show with the release of their newly redesigned AccuDepth line counter reels. The reels feature a brand new finish, sturdier composite frame, and an all aluminum spool. This new economical trolling choice is designed for downriggers, boards, planers, and flat lines. The reel has a souped up drive system and machine cut brass gearing for greater power and efficiency. The new AccuDepth reels are available in 4 sizes and come with the familiar dual barrel grips on the smaller reels and a power grip on the larger ones. There suggested retail price will start at $59.95 (size 17) and go to $64.95 (27 and 47).
