T. ALLEN WAVES SERIES ROADS BRING UNIQUE LINE CONTROL TO SPINNING RODS

T. Allen Waves 2

T. Allen Rods launches their new “Wave Series” line of spinning rods today, bringing better distance, accuracy, rod strength, sensitivity, balance, and additional benefits to anglers everywhere.

The Wave Series is the first production line of rods in the world featuring “The Bass Professor” Doug Hannon’s “Microwave Guide System”. This system captures and redirects energy from the coiling line leaving the spool at the stripper guide, which maintains lines speed, eliminates friction, and allows the bait or lure to pull the line. When installed to T. Allen Rods’ custom specifications on their 100% carbon fiber rod blank, the Wave Series quickly proves to be a super-lightweight, exquisitely-balanced, easy-to-cast rod for every type of angler.

Modern day panfish anglers are a little pickier than those that came before them. As pro crappie fishermen like Whitey Outlaw demanded lighter, stronger, more sensitive rods B’n’M developed rods made of the most recent high-tech materials. Their rods are made in various lengths and styles to accommodate the many methods of crappie fishing. Their fiberglass telescopic rods extend from 10 feet to 20 feet depending on the model, once again matching rods to angers needs.

As a testament to the strength of B’n’M rods, Whitey reports catching lots of catfish up to 30 pounds and plenty of lunker bass as well. Catching these big fish on a crappie, bream and bluegill pole is almost unbelievable. “I have never had one break,” says Whitey.

NEW STAINLESS STEEL PUSH POLE HOLDERS

holders

Push poles are useful for a variety of situations, from day-to-day activities to emergencies. Accon Marine’s Push Pole Holders make keeping these poles in place simple.

Constructed from marine-grade 316 stainless steel and UV-resistant glass-filled nylon, both the 710 Surface-Mount and 708 Flush-Mount models are designed for years of trouble-free service. They also fold down flush when not in use to help prevent tripping. For maximum pole stability, three push pole holders are recommended.

Accon’s 708 Push Pole Holder and 708-R Ring Pole Holder work together to keep a pole safely in place. A riser shim isn’t needed, since the pole sits 1-1/16″ off the deck. Installation is easy and only a 4-13/16″ x 1-3/8″ hole is required for each unit. The holders attach with four #10 screws. Optional waterproofing cups are also available.

Easy to install, the 710 Flush-Mount model only requires three #10 screws. Owners simply mount the holder on the surface, no cut-outs necessary.

Owners and builders can view an installation video of the 708 model at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_yH96CtR6w&feature=channel. Accon Marine’s 708 Push Pole Holder has a starting price of $60.36 while the 710 model has a price of $64.29.
