Best New Accessory
The new-look EFTTA Best New Accessory Award category no longer includes terminal tackle, but it will be as keenly fought as ever.
Last year’s winning company, Frichy, returns with a new set of aluminium pliers. It faces strong competition from a number of major international manufacturers such as Shimano (with a new luggage range), Sage (which is introducing a new series of travel rod tubes) and Rapala with its Compact Touch Screen Scale. Also competing are two of Europe’s pre-eminent carp brand: JRC, with its Radar DS Solar Alarm, and Prologic, which has introduced an innovative magnetic release system, the aptly-named Prologic Magneto Swing Indicator.
Other world brands competing for this year’s EFTTEX Best New Accessory Award including leading kayak manufacturer Hobie Cat from the USA and tackle box specialists Meiho from Japan and Plastica Panaro from Italy.
