A Look At The Hottest New Bass Gear

Abstract:
Each year in Las Vegas, Nev. the sportfishing industry converges for the ICAST trade show. Here, companies display their new wares - everything from lures and line to rods, reels, tools, and accessories.

The Boyd Duckett Classic Gold series is a high-end offering with a bunch of tech involved. The blank is described as being a "multi-modulus and filament-wound carbon-fiber nanotube." The guides are ceramic-free, there's a weight port in the butt for personal balancing, and the reel-seat (designed by E21) is split and set on a bulbous portion of the rod. They felt cool, and were very light.

The Carrot Stix, believe it or not, are rods that utilize carrot fiber. "Nano-level cellulose bio-fibers" are extracted from carrots, processed into a "super-high-strength epoxy matrix," then wrapped around a graphite skeleton. Also very lightweight. (E21fishing.com)
