New gear from the T&G show

Stand-out qual­ity in new Coven­try venue

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

IT WAS all change at the an­nual Tackle & Guns trade show as it moved to a new venue – Coven­try’s Ri­coh Arena – and broke with its tra­di­tional mid-Oc­to­ber dates, seen by many as the cul­mi­na­tion of the an­gling trade show sea­son.

For most re­tail­ers in at­ten­dance at this trade-only event, the main at­trac­tion has al­ways been to wit­ness an­gling’s big­gest names un­veil­ing all their lat­est equip­ment un­der one roof.

This year many of the top play­ers were con­spic­u­ous by their ab­sence. How­ever, all was not lost as there was still plenty of great new kit on dis­play, and it gave those who did at­tend a chance to steal a march on their com­peti­tors.

On view were some su­per new rods and reels from Shi­mano, ar­guably the best seat­box ever seen – launched by Fren­zee – and a new Terry Hearn bait from Dy­na­mite.
