Berkley is on board for the 2018 Gold Coast Flathead Classic
We are delighted to announce that Berkley is onboard for the 2018 Gold Coast Flathead Classic.
Taking two sponsorship positions this year, Berkley is the 2018 Ultimate Line Partner, putting forward their FireLine® product, plus they are also a 2018 Diamond Partner, showcasing their Shimma Shad product.
Fireline Ultra 8 delivers a line that is incredibly strong and abrasion resistant yet long casting and user friendly, resisting wind knots like never before. Optimised for spin reels Fireline Ultra 8 is ideal for all light to medium lure fishing applications.
The unique fusing process using heat to molecularly bind thousands of Dyneema fibres gives Fireline Ultra 8 more body than regular braids. The body and heft of Fireline Ultra 8 delivers unique handling properties and superb manageability. More tolerant of line twist than traditional soft braids, Fireline Ultra 8 performs exceptionally well on spinning reels meaning less loose loops and less wind knots on the water.
The 8 strand fusing process also gives Fireline Ultra 8 several significant advantages.
Fireline Ultra 8 is 4X more abrasion resistant than original Fireline, often regarded as the benchmark in toughness. Ultra 8 stands up to structure such as mangroves, barnacles, reef and wrecks. That means more fish in the boat.
Rounder and smoother, Fireline Ultra 8 casts 10% further than traditional Fireline expanding your fishing zone.
Fireline Ultra 8 retains superb knot strength and near zero stretch delivering a telegraphic feel for structure and strikes.
The unique fusing process produces a round profile that resists digging into the spool under heavy loads and never separates like many standard braids.
New Fireline Ultra 8 thermally fuses 8 braided strands to create a line that is 4X More Abrasion Resistant and casts 10% further than traditional Fireline while retaining that Fireline sensitivity and manageability.
For the soft-vibe fans, Berkley Shimma Shad has revolutionised the soft-vibe bait.
Its natural swimming action transmits vibrations on the lift with a subtle flutter on the drop. Life-like features enhance the lure to mimic real bait-fish with intricate scales, fins, gill patterns and 3D eyes.
Featuring high quality TPE (Thermoplastic Elastomer) material for extra durability, through-wire construction with a precisely engineered weight balance system and fitted with high quality Japanese Owner treble hooks for the perfect hook-set.
Available in 65mm/15g, 100mm/25g & 130mm/30g sizes
