You Know You Want to Touch It

SI-TEX recently introduced the T-760 Series touch-screen color LCD radar, which delivers big -performance and professional-radar features in a unit that is sized and priced right for any vessel.

Reel Legends Clothing

Florida represents the epicenter of the saltwater-fishing world, and Beall’s department stores have been a big part of Florida’s history since the retail business started on the banks of the Manatee River in 1915. Today Beall’s offers its own line of outdoor clothing under the Reel Legends brand. All of the shirts and shorts feature quick-drying, water- and fade-resistant fabrics. The Long Sleeve Salt Water shirt is made for the true fisherman, with a sunglasses loop, fully vented back, and expandable front pockets. The roll tab sleeves offer versatility, and UPF-30 sun protection keeps your skin safe when you roll the sleeves down. For more information, visit beallsflorida.com.

World’s Biggest Reel

For more than three decades, the Everol Special Series 18/0 fishing reel held the world record as the largest production reel on the planet. Not anymore! This past March, Everol released the Special Series 20/0, which comes with an unmatched line capacity of 5,300 yards of -100-pound-test monofilament or 14,000 yards of 130-pound braided line. The stock 20/0 reel comes standard with gold anodizing. On a whim, the factory in Italy produced a few of these historic fishing reels in black, blue, silver, red, green and violet. In less than one week, Everol sold out of every reel in every color. There is currently a 4- to 6-week backlog on the 20/0 reel. For more information, contact keith@everol.com or call 252-648-3210.Brad Puckett

Lojack for Your Luggage

Traveling anglers visit some pretty sketchy places sometimes, and therefore ensuring a safe arrival of your precious luggage becomes increasingly important. GlobaTrac’s Trakdot Luggage Tracker is the first-ever luggage-tracking solution with worldwide location reporting that keeps you connected to your valuables. The palm-size device fits in your checked luggage, allowing you to track it from check-in to baggage claim. The unit can even send you an SMS text message or email with the location of your luggage upon arrival. Trakdot uses cellular technology rather than GPS, and detects its location using a GSM chip, triangulating its position using local cell towers. Trakdot even allows multiple mobile/device tracking, so you can connect multiple cellphones to one Trakdot device or track multiple devices from one phone. For more information, visit trakdot.com.
