Trapper hooks look really interesting and so does the line welder if it works as they say it does.

More curious rather than excited about what gloomis new focus on "balance" means to them on the new glx

Cool new hardbaits from Megabass. New Glx looks good I dont have a problem with the split grip but like kickerfish I would prefer full...

The TRD Tubez which I had heard about a while ago, so hoping we don't have to wait to long for that one to hit the shelves. 

The trapper hook is intriguing, I can't figure out if if is legit or just another gimmick. I will probably pick some up to find out which it is.

New GLX MBR's could have full grips like the E6x ones.

I'm interested in the Zoom Original worms. I still have about 20 bags of the original pours of these worms. They are deadly on a shake head. I still pick up every pack I run across in older tackle stores. Maybe these newer ones will be as good as the older ones. 

 

Also I'm interested in the new Zman TRD Tubes.

The Gill shorts look nice, I switched to softshell hiking pants for winter/fall and have yet to find a pair of shorts that I really like.

The Trapper hooks look interesting as well, I fish a lot of small, weightless plastics and if these things work they seem perfect for me. 

The Zman micro-finesse jigs are an instant buy, but I wish they offered one in 1/16oz.

And finally, the Zman TRD Tubes.  I am going to buy enough to fill my bathtub and swim around in them like Scrooge McDuck.  A cut down Hula Stick is my goto lure most days and this looks even better.  I was literally pining about something like this just a day or two ago.  Excited beyond reason here.

Zman tube and creature bait (going to be a killer swing head bait).

Pfluegar President baitcaster looks great, and if it's anything like the spinning reel.

Do-it Ned Rig mold with a keeper. Please, please, PLEASE have more than 1 cavity per size so I can stop pouring these things one at a time.

Seaguar Finesse fluoro and Rippin mono

Hardbaits were pretty disappointing.

My I-cast wish of a ned rig do-it mold came true:)!  I can't wait until barlows gets the new mold in stock, plus the new baits z-man is releasing look awesome, especially the tube.  There goes my savings for a new topwater rod.:(

I was really thinking of picking up a GLX but these new ones just don't look as nice to me as the last ones..

I may try the Yo-Zuri TopKnot fluorocarbon since I really like Hybrid for cranking

Sunline BX2 may go on my frogging rod

Standup Fish head spin could be an awesome ripping bait

So no crankbait rods in the new GLX line.

Am I just getting old?    None this crap really looks new to me.  Just rehashing old stuff, telling us it's new and better, we can't live without it. and upping the price.  Spot lock, or whatever they call this year, trolling motor.  Who cares?  I don't see nothing that makes me reach for my credit card.
