Since its introduction the Helios family of tournament bass rods and reels has offered elite-level performance for anglers who bring every competitive advantage to their time on the water. The all- new Helios Air, trims more than a half-ounce from high-‐speed
Helios low- profile reels to strengthen the connection between angler and fish by minimizing the presence of the gear that comes between.
Original Helios high-speed reels are so impressive because nothing was sacrificed to reach an incredibly light 6.3‐ounces of total weight. Helios Air is equally impressive, reaching 5.7- ounces with a no-nonsense approach to the featherweight category. Simply, the frame and side plates of the Helios Air are constructed from magnesium; maintaining all the structural integrity as well as an ergonomic, full feel in the palm.
Beginning in January Honey Hole All Outdoors will be airing Sunday mornings at 6:30am in HD. Be sure to note the change on your DVR’s beginning on January 5th.
Well worth the time it takes to watch it.
Shimano CI4+ Casting Reel
APT has had the reels in stock now since they hit the market, and has quite a few customers who are fishing with the new Chronarch Ci4+ for several weeks now and it’s hard to not be impressed by the look, feel, smoothness, and performance of the reel that won Best in Show at ICAST this past summer.
It’s incredibly light, sleek and powerful and the SVS Infinity Braking System allows for nearly limitless options when it comes to adjusting the brakes. We’ve heard nothing but positive feedback from the customers who have purchased them. In several cases they have purchased more to replace their existing reels.

The smaller, compact unit is designed to meet the needs of anglers who want a portable unit. It’s perfect for kayaks, johnboats, pontoons, ice fishing and even big bass boats on a budget.
The Mini comes preloaded with two of HydroWave’s strongest sounds – Frenzy and Passive – and utilizes many of the features associated with the original HydroWave.
The unit has omnidirectional sound, is shock and water resistant and is designed to operate with a 9-volt battery.
“We are really excited to bring this unit to market,” said Gene Eisenmann, managing partner of HydroWave. “The success of the original HydroWave has created the demand for a portable option and a reduced cost. We really got it right with this unit.”
The HydroWave Mini will retail for $139 and will be available at participating HydroWave retail partners and at www.hydrowave.com.
