All eyes on Sonik for success

Tackle brand Sonik is fast becoming a must-stock name for dealers as it records a ‘phenomenal’ sales year and prepares for the T&G Trade Show.
The firm says its buoyant sales owe much to its Gravity X rods and Tournos 8000 and 10000 reels, which have firmly established themselves as market leaders in the all-too-often volatile carp sector.
To firmly cement this standing as a brand leader, the company is also reporting record sales on its acclaimed SKS carp accessories, launched at last year’s T&G Trade Show.
In particular the SKS bivvy, day-shelter system, luggage and SK Black series carp rods have been greatly received by retailers and consumers alike.
Sonik says this is down to its mix of value-for-money product, featuring all the design, functionality and looks of something twice the price.
For the 2015 T&G Show – and to further its hold on the carp market – Sonik brings a new edge to its portfolio with the addition of a 6000-sized big-pit reel for the growing ‘short rod, short session’ angler, plus a free-spool version of its Tournos 8000. It will also be showcasing the next generation of S3 and S6 carp rods, plus additions to the Gravity X range in the form of 13ft 3.5lb Spod and Marker rods.
Visitors will also see the launch of Sonik’s XTi range of super shelters, bedchairs and chairs, all made from the latest durable waterproof fabrics, taking comfort on the bank to the next level!
Its growth in the sea market also looks set to continue – following on from the Gravity Surf range will be a new stiffer tip version called Gravity HT, in 14ft 4in and 15ft 4in lengths, ideal for the winter rougher ground beach fishing, along with the ground-breaking ZX shore rods.
Retailers enjoying good sales of SKS Black Beach rods will also be pleased to hear that a fixed-spool version will be available, together with the S4 boat rod series and sea rig additions.

Ecogear: We’ve got a big deal for you
Japanese lure specialist Ecogear is increasing the range of soft plastics available to British retailers.
The move means there will be a much wider range of colours and sizes available as well as a much deeper stock holding, ensuring that dealers are not caught cold when demand is at its highest. The company is also investing heavily in point of sale.
Ecogear brand manager Nick Marlow told T&G: “Lure fishing is on a steep growth curve and there is serious demand for quality products in this market. Japan, as so often is the case, leads the way in this field.
“Ecogear covers so many bases – it pioneered the Light Rock Fishing (LRF) scene, has complete ranges for Heavy Rock Fishing (HRF) and its soft plastics are viewed by many as go-to baits for perch, zander and pike.”
The brand is now looking to strengthen its store position with bespoke shop fittings for select dealers.
“Feedback from customers is that they want a one-stop shop. They want all the colours and sizes in front of them when they make their buying decision – and this is something we are very prepared to do and on the right terms too, with the right dealers.”

Rig Marole ready for 2016
BRITISH carp brand Rig Marole is already preparing for 2016, a year that it believes will be a defining moment in the company’s history.
The firm is in the final process of preparing some very exciting innovations that it will be unveiling at the Tackle & Guns Trade Show.
Rig Marole was bought by Japanese bait giant Marukyu in October 2014.
Nigel Harris, former owner and now consultant for the brand, told T&G: “This has been a whirlwind year for Rig Marole. I suppose from the outside looking in it probably looks like we’ve not done much in the past 12 months – what with no new products coming out! Things could not be further from the truth, though!
“At this year’s T&G you will finally be able to see the many projects I have been working on… these are very exciting times!”
T&G understands that several new patents have now been granted to the company. The brand has also invested heavily in new POS material for dealers.

Total Weighing Solutions launched by Reuben Heaton
Scale maker and tackle supplier Reuben Heaton will be previewing its unique Total Weighing Solutions project at the T&G Trade Show in October, developing new weighing and measuring processes.
The new initiative is focused on the development of weighing and measuring concepts designed to solve some of the problems associated with the recording of data for live fish.
Reuben Heaton boss Andrew Race said: “Every year we see new developments within the various disciplines in angling that require specialist weighing and measuring products. In some cases the products required are similar to but not the same as the traditional ones; for others it’s a totally new product. We are working on products for both leisure and match anglers, for use in saltwater and freshwater.
“Accurate recording of data is easy when working with inanimate objects; they sit still and allow you to weigh them, there’s no movement, no water and not much in the way of external factors to affect your results.
“With angling it’s much more of a challenge and we’re setting out to improve the process where we can with weighing accessories specifically designed to minimise the external factors that can cause error.”

❱❱ Fish welfare is an ever-growing concern and, with an increase in catch-and-release programmes around the world, safe, effective weighing products are a must, according to Andrew.

Big Boys Back T&G Show. (June 2015)

Some of the biggest names in the business are back at this year’s Tackle & Guns Trade Show, proving what a key event it continues to be.
As the first official floorplan for the 2015 venture is released, major players including Fox, Leeda, Preston Innovations, Snowbee, Gardner and Fulling Mill on the fishing side, and shooting names like John Rothery Wholesale, BSA, ASI, Deben and Hawke, Range Right, Air Arms and Daystate/Brocock are among those confirming their attendance.

This year’s show – set for Sunday and Monday, October 11th and 12th, at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire – will see a new-look layout designed to help exhibitors and visitors alike take advantage of growing trends and expanding market sectors.
One of the most exciting plans will see a major expansion of the lure fishing area. The lure tank proved so popular last year that it has been given a central role at the event, with plenty of space for related companies to exhibit nearby and use the tank to showcase their own products.
The ever-popular casting pool has been moved in front of the major fly fishing suppliers such as Snowbee, Fulling Mill, Veniards, St George Sporting Richard Wheatly and Hopkins & Holloway.

The Shooting Trade Show – a key element of the weekend – returns with some of the biggest brands in the business and a series of features.
Alongside the usual airgun range will be Petron’s archery range and two special night-vision areas, one dedicated to products from Thomas Jacks and the other free for any exhibitors to use and demonstrate their latest gear. Meanwhile, Daystate is understood to be bringing its own shooting range, which will be on its stand for dealers to try out their skills.

Deben’s Hawke Optics brand has been given a new look and will be very much in evidence during the show, while the organisers also welcome back Casstrom, Midland Diving Equipment, BA Blades, Ardee Sports and BBB Investments with its COAST torches, among others.
Clothing expert Bonart and specialist tackle suppliers Gardner and Catmaster are joined in the ‘link’ section once again by Rosker, which impressed dealers last year with its Primus and Brunton gear.

The organiser of The Big One fishing show – FishFace Promotions – will also be on hand to discuss its next event.

In the other hall, Preston Innovations and its range of brands – Korum, Avid Carp and Sonubaits – will be showcasing a massive selection of new gear, as will Leeda, Wychwood and MAP. TIME Inc, which publishes Angler’s Mail, will be in evidence as usual, while Taska, Frenzee and Rod Hutchinson will all be making a welcome return.
Fox International, with its Matrix and Fox Rage brands, is looking forward to keeping dealers busy with a host of launches.

Show organiser and DHP managing director Sean O’Drsicoll said: “It’s great to have so many big names rebooking already for the event – we know it is a must-attend for those serious about unveiling new gear and talking to dealers.

“With the addition of the lure tank in a more central location, we believe that the event is well poised to take advantage of a major growth area in angling and are confident that lure fishing manufacturers and suppliers will be keen to get involved and use the tank to demonstrate their latest gear.
“We’re also looking to build on the success of the fly fishing area, traditionally a vital part of the mix, and the casting pool’s new location should allow suppliers even easier access to demonstrate what they have on offer.
“Getting hands-on with product and discussing with the manufacturers and distributors is what this event is all about and, once again, the airgun, archery and night-vision ranges will play their part in The Shooting Trade Show.”

The redesign ensures there’s plenty of space for companies to find the ideal space to exhibit and, with prices held for this year, there’s never been a better time to showcase and sell your products to around 700 fishing and shooting retailers.
