After three Best of Show category wins in recent years, Paladin is expecting to make more progress at China Fish 2012 by introducing the Castalia Magic Flight reel to the Asian market.
The Magic Flight features a dimpled spool design inspired by the surface of golf balls. The dimples are positioned on both the outer edge of the spool and backside of the facing. They work to reduce friction on the line much like the dimples on the golf ball reduce friction as it flies through the air. Less friction on the line, says Paladin, means greater casting distances.
The Magic Flight reel was introduced to European buyers at EFTTEX in Amsterdam, where it was entered into the Best New Fixed Spool Award category. It has a slim profile and other weight-saving features, and is well balanced for all-day casting. It is available in models 2000 and 4000, a Freerunner model 6000 and Surfcasting model 9000. Visitors to China Fish are encouraged to visit booth C095 to see the reel for themselves.
Paladin‘s full product line includes more than 5,000 fishing-related items and 15 trademarked brands including Magic Flight, Palastar, Trick Fisch, Flip Net, Big Bag, Fit for Fang, Paladin, Big Bull, Maruto, Pantherline, Classic, Master Class, Liquid Braid, Castalia, Sharkfin and Liquid Steel Leader. Paladin also supplies a wide range of angler-related items including apparel, tackle systems and outdoor equipment.
The company, which was launched to manufacture German designs at its own factory in China, has offices in Europe, Asia and North America. For details on the Magic Flight and all other Paladin products buyers in Europe should contact Guenther Burk, in Asia Christine Cong and in North America Mike Richards.
