Flying the flag for Europe at China Fish was German-based Ockert, which won the Best Line award at the show’s Awards Banquet.
The company took the top honour for its Climax Carat 12 which it says marks a milestone in the history of braided line as it is the only product of its kind that does not open when twisted. This is a result of its innovative spiral construction.
Ockert Export Manager Christian Rademann said: “It was a big surprise to win an award – we did not expect it. We had confidence in the product, but we are a relatively unknown brand in the Chinese market and were in a very competitive category.
“It capped a good show for us. China Fish is not about the quantity of visitors, but the quality and we met enough of them to make it worthwhile event.”
