COLUMBIA, S.C. – EFTTEX, the European Fishing Tackle Trade Exposition, concluded on Sunday their 30th anniversary show in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The gala closing ceremony included the announcements of the new product award winners. Leading the awards announcements was the naming of Berkley NanoFil as recipient of the first-ever category for Innovation of the Year.
Stated one of the EFTTEX judges: “NanoFil did not fit into either our monofilament or braid category, yet it scored enough votes to have won either category. It is a worthy winner of our inaugural Innovation of the Year award.”
“We are elated,” exclaimed NanoFil Product Manager Joe Meyer at the event. “We’ve worked with the folks from Dyneema for seven years perfecting NanoFil and the end product is unlike any fishing line we’ve ever invented. The unifilament process allows us to produce a fishing line that is thinner, stronger and more manageable than ever thought possible.”
Berkley® NanoFil™ with its thin smooth texture allows anglers to effortlessly cast further with unsurpassed precision. It is the ideal fishing line for light to medium action spinning tackle.
