The American Tackle Company is stepping up the introduction of its multi award-winning MicroWave Guide System into other angling disciplines.
So far, the system that has proved such a hit with rod makers has been aimed predominantly at the spinning sector. Now the US company plans to roll out guides for at least two new applications a year.
“We are picking up the pace,” said American Tackle’s European Sales Manager Daniel Paluch. “People are asking for different versions of the system and we are going to make them available in different sizes for different applications.”
Paluch disclosed that the first of the new systems, called CarpCaster, which made its debut at EFTTEX in Brussels, will be available from July this year. “Carp anglers are looking for extra distance as well as accuracy and this system delivers both,” Paluch told Angling International. “It is also tailor-made for surf casters looking to gain extra yards.
“The unique guide design funnels, tames and controls the line so that the angler can cast further with more accuracy and using less energy. The small guides also mean less weight in the rod and the quad leg design stands up to the rugged treatment meted out by carp and surf fishermen.”
Since its initial introduction at ICAST in 2012, the MicroWave Guide System has generated a worldwide following popularly called the Wave Army. Stickers for the growing movement were in abundance at EFTTEX, where visitors were invited to take the MicroWave Challenge on the show’s casting pool.
“Once people try casting with the new system they understand the advantages over standard guide trains,” added Paluch.
