back into the fishing industry. The statistics speak for themselves, at EFTTEX 2011 in Amsterdam, Holland where it celebrated its 30th anniversary, we had a total of 253 exhibitors attending from 39 exhibiting countries and were pleased to welcome 34 first time exhibiting companies to the show.

EFTTEX 2011 was a sell out. The stand space being completely sold before Christmas 2010, with the success of last year's exhibition and previous shows we can safely predict EFTTEX 2012 will be another great success.

If you are looking at moving into new markets, EFTTEX will give you the opportunity to meet the right people. No other trade show gathers together so many members of the global angling community. It is a great place to renew old friendships and it provides the right environment to do business in the way you choose; from the show floor to drinks after the exhibition closes.

The exhibitor list for EFTTEX 2012 will be on our website from February 2012 and the floorplan will be available from October 2011.

Do not miss out on the opportunity to be part of one of the most important fishing tackle trade shows of the year! Contact the EFTTEX team now to find the stand you want along with further information.

Bushido Blank


American Tackle Company Bushido Nano Super Composite Jigging & Popping rod blanks focus on bringing ultimate technology to the action-angling performance of technique specific rod building applications. Although the norm in some fisheries, the Vertical Jigging and Popping style fishing has been growing in popularity worldwide.  The Bushido blanks are the perfect way to allow rod builders to specialize in these markets.


The high-end Bushido blanks are designed to reduce physical weight, add sensitivity and provide increased material recovery required for prolonged battles with larger game fish. They also offer tremendous strength to weight ratios ideally suited for heavy 25 to 30 lb. plus drag settings. The quicker recovery in the material allows proper presentation to hook the fish while providing the strength to land larger fish more effectively. All this is achieved by combining Super Nano Resins, S-Glass, and 30 Ton Carbon material and rolling up to six different patterns as many as fourteen times under high pressure to create the ultimate action, power and durability.


These Bushido rod blanks are cosmetically appealing with a clear coated 4mil X-cross woven carbon overlay that illuminates in natural sunlight. The initial offering is comprised of eight Vertical Jigging models from 5'8" to 6'6" lengths ranging from 250 gram to 450 gram jig ratings. There are also three 7'6" and two 8' GT Popping models with 125 gram to 400 gram ratings.
