With Leeda’s early season exhibition – IceTackle – just weeks away, the UK’s largest manufacturer and distributor is giving its retailers a sneak preview of what to expect.
IceTackle, the free trade-only event, gives retailers a chance to see the upcoming products from Leeda, Wychwood and MAP alongside the brands that its distributes throughout the UK.
Re-designed for 2017, MAP’s Competition Hooklength Storage System now features solid pins instead of slotted foam. This revision of an already popular product means it’s not only perfect for shorter pole hook lengths, but also ideal for longer versions for feeder and bomb fishing.
The double-sided design features tinted ‘smoke’ plastic lids that not only make hook lengths easy to identify, but also protects them from UV light.
Unlike any other storage box on the market, it also features an innovative built-in measuring tool that will ensure all your hook lengths are exactly the same length.
The box has removable rubber grommets that cover unused internal pins, for use when storing longer hook lengths to protect them from kinking.
Drift XL rods will also be making their debut at the show and feature a unique extending butt section that, with the twist of the handle, increases the overall length by eight inches. Lockable at any point during the extension, this four-strong range of 3, 4 and 5-weight rods are designed for river anglers who need a multi-purpose rod for both dry fly and nymph fishing.
They are fitted with Pacbay guides, a whipped competition measure along the blank, plus a subdued camo-look and ‘P’ cork handle.
IceTackle will be the official launch of two new Leeda Concept GT pole rollers. Lightweight and extremely stable, both models feature four telescopic legs that are fully lockable when extended.
The single version has a ‘super smooth’ EVA central roller with two upright end rollers. The double roller features two EVA independent rollers with two upright ones and is ideal for double shipping – RRP is £34.99 and £39.99 respectively.
IceTackle takes place at the MDC Showrooms, in Milton Keynes, from February 21 to 23.
