American Tackle secures 13th industry award at EFTTEX


American Tackle continued its phenomenal run of success at tackle trade shows across the globe when it won its 13th trade award at EFTTEX last week.

The Florida-based business returned to the European event in Budapest, Hungary, and went home with the prize for the best new rod component for its Hybrid Aluminium Carbon Posi-Lock.

Gary Benney, European Branch Manager at American Tackle, attended EFTTEX and was there to accept the award on behalf of the company. “I couldn’t be happier to be a part of this great team,” said Gary. “We work daily to make products that the fishing industry adopts, and it is the best feeling in the world to be a part of it!”

The Hybrid reel seat offers a cutting-edge solution for carp, surf and saltwater rods, blending composite and machined seat advantages. Its carbon machined body, ‘C’ channel design, lightweight locking hoods and compatibility with high-quality reels prevent shut-off points and breakage during heavy casting.

The carbon body ensures better bonding, while the aluminum rear thread and double-locking nuts provide a secure lock to prevent reel rocking.
