A Zman rep told me that they are coming out with something new that he thinks I'll be all over but he said he couldn't tell me what it is.  So I will have to wait and see.

Daiwa is going to steal the show this year. Tatulas, Rods, hardbaits, more soft plastics partnered with Yamamoto and braided line. I'm very excited to see it all. Plus Kislter will have their new ZBone, Omega Custom tackle is revealing a new swim jig and spinnerbait.

 

Another rumor is Shimano is dropping a $50 reel based of the Casitas as well and Daiwa will have a Chinese outsourced sub $100 reel.

Saw these new possible products from Z-Man. Since I love all things Z-Man I am super excited.

To add... I've heard rumors the Shimano reel is an updated version of the "Bass Rise" and could retail as low as $44.

Shimano is definitely going to steal the show this year no doubt!!! Maybe diawa might might be the highlight of the show for best lower end reels.😬

The only thing I have heard coming from Shimano is the sub $50 reel and the DC Curado K. I'm sure they will have more but Daiwa's leaked products sound more exciting.

Will they be debuting the new Sufix Advance Copolymer? I was debuted last year overseas I believe. And the only place I can find it is on aliexpress or ebay uk. 

 

I'm very intrigued by it.

Hopefully they don’t run as crappy as the 90s.

Even though it is already out there I'm sure the Strike King KVD 1.5DD square bill will be chatted up at ICAST.

Have some coming this week.
