posted in: Tackle reviews | 0

Following the cancellation of the Efttex Show In Budapest, due to on-going Covid issues, the organisers decided to run the usual Best New Products Competition digitally, with all the exhibitors invited to send in products, for the various categories, which were then judged by a panel of judges, from the international tackle trade.

Snowbee UK were delighted to come away with 3 awards, in the fly fishing categories:

Best New Saltwater Fly Rod, for our Prestige G-XS SW Graphene 9ft #8 Saltwater fly rod…
10226 Prestige G-XS SW Saltwater fly rod 9ft #8wt 4-Pcs 
Designed for larger predators and casting bigger flies where necessary. Often the preferred weight when likely to experience windy conditions and bigger fish, as so often encountered on the coast. More powerful than the #7wt rod but still so light in the hand, making this rod the ideal all-rounder choice for Bonefish, Permit and Pike plus ideal for the increasingly popular fly fishing for Carp.

Handle Full Wells 
Rod Wt. 110g/3.9oz 
Best New Two-Handed Fly Rod, for our Prestige G-XS Graphene 11ft #8 Switch Rod
10198 11’ #8 Double-Handed Switch Fly Rod – 5 pce 
Designed for double handed use on lakes and rivers, this often referred to ‘Switch’ style rod, exhibits all the power reserves of the Prestige Graphene G-XS range. Still light enough to be cast single handed, as well as for purposely light double-handed use. Great on smaller rivers for large Trout, Sea-Trout and Grilse or from the boat. Read More…
Rod Weight: 107g/3.8oz 
Runner-Up in the Best New Fly Fishing Clothing, for our new XStreme Quilted Thermal Jacket…
11929 Snowbee XStreme Thermal Jacket 
Finished in an attractive Olive Green, outer nylon shell, the filling is a synthetic Polyball polyester, with a fill weight of a class-leading 425g. The issue with most thermal jackets, whether down or synthetic filling, is that they lose much of their insulation properties, once the filling gets wet. To help avoid, this the 380T nylon outer shell, is treated with a ‘Matt Ciring finish’.Our new jacket makes an ideal outer-layer on crisp, dry days, or a perfect thermal mid-layer, under an outer breathable shell, to keep you toasty warm even on the coldest days. Team it up with our amazing Mini-Pack Jacket for the perfect, flexible combination. Read more…
Colour: Olive Green 
Sizes: S-36/38” M-38/40” L-42/44” XL-46/48” XXL-50/52” 

Snowbee MD, Russell Weston said… We were obviously delighted to come away with these awards, in what is a very prestigious competition, with entries from the top brands worldwide.

To win two out of three of the Best New Fly Rod categories was a strong endorsement of our Prestige G-XS fly rods, which were our first foray into Graphene fly rod construction, which has been a huge success and already become our top selling range of rods!

The new XStreme Thermal Jacket is another first for Snowbee. This ultra-lightweight jacket, packs down into the smallest space, but packs a big punch in terms of thermal properties.
