Castalia Outdoors ?Magic Flight? Spinning Reel Takes Off
#The New Magic Flight Spinning Reel from Castalia OutdoorsCastalia Outdoors
New ?dimpled? spool design increases casting distance - and fish catches.Ever wonder why golf balls have dimples? One reason is they reduce the friction along the surface of the ball to increase driving distance. The new Magic Flight spinning reel features a patented spool design with a dimpled edge, much like the dimples on the surface of a golf ball. This unique edge reduces friction as the line is quickly released during a normal cast. The line only touches the ?peak? of each dimple to reduce friction on the outgoing line ? thus increasing both distance of the cast and ?cover area? fished, thereby improving the chances to catch more fish!The Magic Flight recently won both the 2012 EFTTEX Best New Reel ? Commended, and the 2012 ChinaFish Best New Reel Category.The Castalia Magic Flight spinning reels are available in Angler Series 2000/4000, Pro Series 2000/4000, a Free-drag Series 3500/5500 and Surfcasting model 9000. Suggested retail prices starting at $79.95.New Bombshell Crab ? The First Truly ?Fishable? Crab Imitation Lure
#The Crab Imitation LureCastalia Outdoors
Featuring pulsating claws and legs, this lure can be rigged through the tail section and up into the hook channel along the center of its belly to provide a perfectly balanced, weedless presentation. A jig head or pegged bullet-style weight will keep the tail down and the claws up, imitating a live crab in defense mode ? nothing elevates a predator?s striking instincts more!The hook pocket helps to position the hook point for in-line weedless fishing and provides efficient hook-sets through the thinner body. When rigged, the lure drops and rests on the bottom in a natural, defensive (claws up) position to produce aggressive strikes in open water. The tail end is conical-shaped to fit bullet-style worm weights perfectly, and the wide saucer-shaped body is great for skip-casting the Bombshell Crab under docks, mangroves or other structure and provides a slower more natural descent.For best results, use a forward-weighted jig hook or 1/8-1/4 oz. bullet-style weight pegged to the tail and 3/0 worm hook Texas-rigged up into the hook pocket.The 3? Bombshell Crab is available in 6-count resealable bags. Color options include Juvenile Green, Motor Oil Flake, ElectricBlue, Chix Flix, Red Silver Flake, Smoke Gold Flake, Nite Glow and Rootbeer Gold Flake.Suggested retail price: $5.99Swing, Lock and Load with this new Kayak-sized Folding Landing Net
