Just returned from my annual new-product review and meeting at Berkley with Scott Dubiel and Kevin Benton. Recently, Pure Fishing acquired Penn Reels so I had the opportunity to checkout some of their new reels as well. In addition to new baits, Berkley has introduced new braids, fluoros and monos from Trilene and Spiderwire. Also, several new baits from the Powerbait line are very impressive. I am very excited about some new baits in particular. The Gulp! Ghost Shrimp are sure to be a very productive bait. New from Powerbait in the scented and flavor-packed Rattle Shrimp. These shrimp baits will quickly become favorites for anglers targeting redfish, trout, flounder and even pompano. Sticking on the Powerbait side, the new Ripple Shad swim baits are sure to produce fish with a rippled body to create more vibration. Also, Gulp! Jerkshads have gone to 6 and 7 inch baits. On the line side, Berkley has created Fineline Braid, the first Radial Braid for roundness, smoothness and strength. Spiderwire has developed a 100% Fluorocarbon line and Berkley has created the Trilene TransOptic for anglers who focus on watching their line. This line is Hi-Vis in the sun(out of the water) and clear below the surface. Lastly, the new reels from Penn are extremely impressive. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to use the new Penn Conquer CQR4000 and CQR2000. These reels feature 10+1 shielded stainless steel ball bearings, bulletproof Eternal Alloy construction, the Superline Spools, and it’s most unique feature, the EAS System. The EAS is the innovative maintenance feature ever introduced in a spinning reel. By backing out one screw on the stem of the reel, the rear hatch opens and gives full access to the gearbox. Very simple to clean and maintain! Also, the new Penn Torque Spinning Reel System is incredible. Mainly for nearshore and offshore applications, this reel offers the highest drag pressure in its class!! The patented Versa-Darg system allows for multiple drag settings for various fishing conditions. These reels will be extremely popular with the cobia, kingfish and pier anglers, but also great for tuna, dolphin, sailfish, even snapper and grouper.
