Browning introduces Classic version of Black Magic series

Browning’s Black Magic series of put-in poles were famous for their incredible strength and durability. However, the Korean-sourced versions were dropped in 2006 when manufacturing costs became prohibitive.
Apart from its strength, the action provided by its put-in joints made the old BM’s the first choice for ‘to hand’ and long line fishing. The company says: “Many are still in regular use and owners tell us that they would love to travel back in time and buy a new Black Magic II or III to replace their tired old warhorse.
“Now they don’t need to because we have re-introduced the famous Black Magic put-in pole under the Classic banner.”
The newcomer is a complete remake of the old Korean pole, on the same mandrel and using the same top quality carbon. The only change is a slight increase to the tip diameter to improve it for elastic or powergum use. It is sold in 11m with an optional extension to increase its reach to 12.5m. The package includes an extra top kit and mini-extension.
It is available from Browning stockists now.
