The Best of Show Award for Fishing Line at China Fish 2015 went to American Tackle Company for their newly announced Bushido Combat Braid. “I’m thrilled to say the least.” says Joe Meehan, President of American Tackle. “I’m so happy for our team–we’ve put great effort in putting this all together and I’m over-the-top thrilled with the win. I am convinced this is the finest line on the planet and I know that we have a product that can compete with the best. Thanks to our team at China Fish, Darrin Heim, Dan Paluch and Gerald Cong for their hard work and dedication to excellence. These braids have been fished by professionals who demand the highest quality available. The test results were so impressive that we can state with confidence these lines will be some of the best offered anywhere in the world. They offer the perfect rigidity for both spinning and casting applications,” added Meehan.
