What’s new from 13 fishing?

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

What’s new from 13 fishing?

Been seeing a lot of clearance on the current Concept A-Zs. Does anyone have the scoop on what’s new?

Was wondering the same thing myself. Seems like a bunch of online retailers have been blowing out the A's and Z's for around $100 all at the same time.

Could be cutting back , could be getting ready for icast. I don't know anything about their financial well being.

I'm sure they will have some new brightly colored thing for sale soon enough.

Does color really matter?
Once I pick up a Concept Z and throw my frog, I don't even think about what color it is, and I like how easy it is to figure out which rod has the frog.

Brightly colored reels has sort of been their thing as of late.

The Concept platform hasn’t changed since 13 entered the market. I’m really curious to see what they’re cooking up to replace it. I put off buying a Concept for the longest time but when the Zs went 50% off I picked up two and was pleasantly surprised at how compact and comfortable they are to fish with. Maybe Matt Baldwin can chime in and give us folk here at Tackle Tour a sneak peak.
