Cover up with the Rod Jacket and
Rig Jacket by Angler Innovations
||Buyers & Press Only
Let's face it, rods and reels can get pretty expensive. While some people don't
seem to mind getting their gear scratched and worn, others (myself included!)
will do whatever it takes to keep this from happening. While there are several
choices on the market for rod and reel protection, Angler Innovations is
offering new solutions that they feel really stand out from the rest. At ICAST
2012, they unveiled their new Brandon Palaniuk signature series Rod Jacket
rod/reel protectors, as well as their new Rig Jackets for protecting your
umbrella rigs while not in use.
Rod Jackets protect casting and
spinning setups very effectively.
The Rod Jacket
rod/reel protectors are built tough using one piece neoprene construction with
nylon binding to protect your rod and reel from abuse. The rod sleeve has a
built in full reel cover so your entire rig is protected with the ease of a one
piece design. Available for both spinning and casting outfits, the material is
mold, mildew, and UV resistant. They are form fitting for a clean look and will
also resist tearing because the material is able to bend and flex.
Endorsed by Elite Pro Brandon Palaniuk,
casting Rod Jackets accommodate up to 7'6” rods while spinning models accept up
to 7'3” rods.
Rod Jackets can
even be utilized on a fully rigged outfit which is very convenient if you want
to store a pile of rigged rods on deck or in a rod locker. They feature a
tapered design with a reinforced 1” tip on casting models and 1 1/4” tip on
spinning models to make safe and effective storage even easier. A Velcro
enclosure is used to wrap the reel securely and allows for simple removal.
Rod Jacket: For use with 6'6” to 7'6” rods and works
with both low profile or round reels. Retail $20.99
Spinning Rod Jacket: For use with 6'6” to 7'3” rods
and works with up to 4000 sized spinning reels. Retail $23.99
Rig Jackets feature a cool outer logo.
Note the clear hook keeper sleeve under the logo.
Why just stop at
protecting rods and reels? Angler Innovations has taken it a step further and
will be offering the Rig Jacket to protect those bulky umbrella rigs on or off
the rod. Featuring the same one piece construction as the Rod Jacket, the Rig
Jacket encapsulates the arms and baits of the umbrella rig offering total
protection. An interesting feature is the clear hook keeper sleeve along the
outside of the jacket, giving you a place to slot the hook points into. Rig
Jacket: Retail $9.99
