Pflueger: When it comes to the ultimate balance of performance and price nobody does it better than Pflueger. The company was showcasing their new flagship reel, the Patriarch. This premium reel features a titanium finish for durability and comes loaded with 11 double shielded bearings, and dual braking system with both centrifugal and magnetic brakes for a limitless range of cast control. There are two versions of this reel, the 6.4:1 and the 7.1:1, and both are designed for medium freshwater and light saltwater applications. The reel looks like a million bucks, yet only retails for 199 dollars.

Side by side with the other reels the new Saltists are noticeable smaller in profile, but Daiwa maintains the same quality ergonomic grip knob for fighting fish. The new Saltist reels are shipping now and will retail for 159 dollars per copy.

Shimano: Shimano recently released a number of new additions at the industry only Big Rock dealer show in Las Vegas, and we will follow up with a separate article to highlight these new offerings.  


The Shimano team was busy showcasing their special priced reels

At the show the company focused on promoting their special rebates which range from 20 to 50 dollars on their quality baitcast lineup. Fifty dollars off the Curado D is a great deal and many anglers took advantage of the special to pick up reels capable of tossing their newly purchased swimbaits. 


The "Ultimate Reel Deal" offers up to 50 dollars off quality baitcasters, but the offer ends April 30th

Shimano also garnered attention for their new lineup of accessory products, especially the lightweight Evair sandals. These sandals are 100% waterproof and are extremely lightweight, weighing in at less than 6oz per sandal. One piece molded EVA absorbs heel shock and reduces foot fatigue from standing and fishing all day. The sandals are available now in Blue or green and retail for $39.99.
