Shimano upgrades and introduces new tackle bags

Shimano has redesigned and introduced new tackle and reel bags into its portfolio for the 2012-13 season.

The Japanese fishing tackle manufacturer offers its front-load Borona tackle bag with moulded interior trays that can be removed and adjusted for a customised fit. There is also an easy access zippered top storage compartment along with zippered side pockets.

Two sizes are available, both including Plano utility boxes – 3650 size on the medium Borona bag and 3750 on the larger version. Suggested retail prices are: BOR100MNV – $119.99; BOR120LNV – $139.99.

The Shimano Baraja Worm Binders also feature a new design, including hard-side construction for easier storage into a boat bag or locker. The worm storage pages are heavy-duty, 15mm thick and have metal grommets for durability.

There is also an inside pocket for extra storage and a comfortable moulded handle.

They are offered in three sizes – medium, large and jumbo. Suggested retail prices are: ABWB300BK – $24.99; ABWB310BK – $29.99; ABWB320BK – $34.99.

New to the Shimano product line are the Bhaltair Reel Bags. Durable, hard-side construction with added padded adjustable dividers ensures safe and easy transport of reels. The dividers are also adjustable for a customised fit.

There is also a padded, adjustable shoulder strap for additional comfort.

Three sizes are available – small, medium and large – to handle either freshwater or saltwater size reels. Suggested retail: BHAL100BK – $59.99; BHAL120BK – $79.99; BHAL130BK $99.99
