Frabill Straight Line Combos Reel

At about 10 am this morning I get a ring at the door. Its the UPS guy aka the “Gift Bringer” In the boxes are some products I have been waiting for, for some time. From Frabill. I received the new Straight Line Combo in the 24 inch UL model. My 1st reaction to this setup was “not bad” while I held it in my hand. I can’t wait to find a way to test this out early. If I can’t find a way during the softwater season I am going to have to wait until it freeze’s up. You can read more about this combo on my blog :

Berkley NanoFil

The other box I got today was from Pure Fishing. Pure Fishing has a new fishing line in there Berkly Brand called NanoFil. This is a new breed of fishing. Berkely is calling it a Uni-Filament I wrote about it earlier in the year when I heard about. I am excited to get this line on a reel or two and give it a try. They sent me two sizes 6lb and 10lb both in 300 yards spools so I will be filling it up on a few reels so I can really put it through its paces. You can read more about this line on my blog :

 Also if you look close to the picture of the reel on the straight line combo you can see those green bands holding the reel to the handle, those are also a new product that I got in the mail a few weeks back.These unique reel wraps are made by Cold Snap Outdoors. Inside the kit you get a special cone that will help you install the bands onto your handle. I will be testing this product this season and I will for sure keep everyone posted on this product has well.

There is one more product that I am currently testing that comes from Michigan’s own K &E. K &E are the markers of the Bass Stopper worms. But they also make all kinds of other products. One of these products are the Whip r’ rod series. They have two lineups in this rod, A softwater series which I am currently testing and an ice series that goes by the same name. I will be testing the ice rod once we get some hardwater.
