ICRBE 2013
Ben Stein, Mick Hinton, and Hunter McKamey ready for the show

This years ICRBE took place in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and American Tackle was there in full force.  Mick, Hunter, Ben and the Bass Professor Doug Hannon had an amazing showing while featuring all the popular items including the Aero reel seats, Bushido Warrior Blanks, and the Revolutionary Microwave Line Control System.  Also in attendance were American Tackle Pro Staff members Derwood Roberts, Matt Sewell and Billy Vivona founder of The NERBS.  Pro Staff members Derwood, Matt, and Billy did a fantastic job introducing visitors to ATC products and sharing tips and tricks of the trade.




During the expo, visitors were able to take the Microwave Challenge.  This challenge compared the Microwave system to other popular guide trains on the market. With nearly 200 casters, 100% confirmed the superiority of the Microwave system to anything else on the market.  Many were skeptical but once they cast the system there was no denying the Microwaves far exceeded anything else in existence.

The Bass Professor, Doug Hannon made an impact for ATC.  His knowledge and experience was very well received.  Signing autographs and sharing fishing and building techniques was a great draw for the ATC booth.  Doug also personally assisted test casters during the Microwave Challenge. 



ICRBE was a tremendous success for American Tackle and we are very much looking forward to doing it all over again next year.  Thank you to all that came by the booth and experienced the greatest advancement in the spinning rod technology in decades.
