American Tackle makes a Big
Splash at ICRBE
On February 25th and 26th, the American Tackle Company had the pleasure of participating in the 2012 International Custom Rod Building Exposition in High Point, North Carolina. This well attended annual event focuses on every aspect of custom rod building and draws visitors from around the globe. It is the perfect venue for AT to showcase new products, gain feedback on prospective products, but most importantly, have intimate contact with rod building consumers.
Joe Meehan, Darrin Heim, Ben Stein & Mick Hinton from American Tackle were on hand to meet rod builders and personally introduce new products. Saturday saw the heaviest traffic with AT staff consistently occupied through-out the day. Some notable products of interest were the new Bushido Jigging & Popping blanks (along with a sneak peak at the coming freshwater/inshore models). The entire line of Matrix blanks and the new Artus HD micro guides were huge draws as well. Sunday concluded a successful AT showing with time to meet with clients & visit with old friends. The opportunity to connect with so many enthusiasts in a total rod building environment is exactly why American Tackle will always have this show on its event calendar.
