IFTD Awards

I saw a lot of real nice new stuff no question. Esthetics and functionally have never been better.

Too many variables in the mix to draw clear cut winners let alone adding in personal preferences.

I'd suggest one might narrow the field/considerations so to speak by looking at what's getting a lot of lip service. Just because something wins a new product award doesn't mean it's better than a product that's is currently on the market.

Possibly the only truly new thing I saw was a knotless Cortland line building system, very cool best suited for big game fishing.
