New VMC product highlights from EFTTEX 2016

The 35th edition of the EFTTEX international tackle trade show took place at the Rai Centre in Amsterdam last week (16th-18th June 2016). 

VMC was one of over 200 exhibitors from over 35 countries, welcoming buyers from over 70 countries. EFTTEX is one of the three top events of this kind in the industry worldwide and open to trade only.

So, for those of you who couldn't be there in person, here's a recap of what's hot from VMC for the next season :



The new Coastal Black (CB) finish, unique to VMC, is a major breakthough in saltwater hooks, and will be made available on a wide selection of single and treble hooks in the coming season. More than just a coating, the Coastal Black finish is the ultimate combination of a discrete black coating for extreme corrosion resistance and a premium hook finishing process for maximum sharpness.

Some great new additions to the 75' SERIES range of premium treble hooks were introduced at EFTTEX, including 1X Strong short shank & extra-short shork patterns perfect for hard lures (7547 - 7548) available both barbed and barbless, new small size 1 and large size 6/0 for the 6X Tropic Spark Point, and a variety of treble hook patterns in the new Coastal Black extreme anti-corrosion finish.
