Retailers from across the US voted for their favourite products at the Big Rock Sports Outdoor Expo in Nashville last month.
It was the fifth year of the Fishing Tackle Retailer magazine-sponsored New Prioduct Showcase. And leading the way was Lowrance which took the top award in the fishing categories – Overall Best New Fishing/Camping/Marine Product to add to the Electronics/Marine accolade.
“The event is differentiated from other new product showcases at industry trade shows, like ICAST, where media organisations have a strong influence over the outcome,” said Big Rock Sports Senior Vice President of Sales, Brian Phillips.
“Since our outdoor retailers know the products and how they will perform better than anyone else, it only makes sense to give them exclusive power to vote for the winners.”
The full list of winners in the fishing section were:
Fishing/Camping/Marine Product: Lowrance Ghost Trolling Motor;
Rod: Lew’s Fishing, Mach 2 Speed Stick;
Reel: Shimano Stradic C3000 FL;
Combo: PENN Fierce III LE Grey Med Combo;

Saltwater lure: MagBay Lures MagTrak Purple Marlin
Line: Power Pro Super Slick V2 Moon Shine Braid;
