Svendsen Sport has been experiencing massive success over the past couple of years, and not least because of Prologic’s popular carp fishing product range.
Since Italian carp fishing expert Enrico Parmeggiani was assigned the job as head of design and development, he has further enhanced the Prologic product range, introducing plenty of cutting-edge and highly innovative tackle along the way.
For 2015, Prologic expands its already impressive line-up of carp fishing gear, which includes everything from rods and holdalls to bite alarms and bite detection, tents, luggage, accessories and clothing.
The line-up has already generated quite a buzz in the industry and Prologic also took home a well-deserved award at this year’s EFTTEX show for one of its 2015 launches – the Mimicry 3D camou mono line.
Enrico is extremely proud of the new gear that will be introduced in 2015 – products that have been developed and tested by himself and his European consultants. Among them are the Quasar rods, the Commander VX2 bivvy and overwrap, the SMX alarm kit, the marker braid, the Unit conversion snag bar kit, and the substrate finder and thermometer.
These are a step forward for Prologic. Billed as the best carp rods ever produced by the firm, 46-ton HM Japanese carbon and a unique production technology have been used that makes it possible to reduce the blank diameters and to keep a fast, progressive action.
Top-quality components include C40X carbon reel seats with Fuji hood and Fuji KWAG “tangle-free” guides. The butt handles are slightly conical in shape, providing comfort and grip even when casting to extreme distance.
These are suited to distance work in spite of the progressive action, the response and the light weight of these rods.
Commander VX2 bivvy and overwrap
This is the perfect bivvy for long sessions or for those looking for total comfort, easily accommodating two big bedchairs but leaving plenty of room in between and all the space you need to accommodate all your bags.
A full zip-on groundsheet provides protection from small animals and insects (a heavy-duty groundsheet is also provided).
Long-lasting waterproof protection is provided by the RipStop 210-denier fabric, while the hybrid aluminium frame makes the Commander VX2 easy to open despite the size, also providing excellent stability in strong wind.
Further features include a rear ventilation mesh window (plus three mosquito mesh windows), a detachable front panel, double-stitched taped seams and heavy-duty pegs.
The overwrap provides insulation both from the sun in the warmest months and the harsh elements during the winter. It’s provided with a rear ventilation mesh window and three mesh windows in the front.
Once fitted, this overwrap gives you extra space, easily accommodating two chairs and one bivvy table, and keeps you totally protected from wind and rain.
Extra features include an ultra-strong pegging point, stabilising bars and an aluminium front frame.
SMX alarm kit
The compact SMX alarms from Prologic have useful features for the carp angler. Featuring an elegant shape, they use normal AAA 1.5V batteries.
Totally waterproof, unlike on the SMW alarms, the illuminated snag ears are telescopic, making the alarms compact and safe to store.
Available in 3+1 and 4+1 guises, each alarm provides five volume levels plus a silent mode, four sensitivity adjustments, a diamond-shaped roller, dedicated drop-back LED indication and tone, plus ultra-bright LEDs.
Each receiver also uses AAA batteries, and features a memory function, silent mode, vibration mode, courtesy night light as well as being completely waterproof.
This high-visibility braided line is designed for marker floats and sounder leads. Thin and strong, the surface has a high-flow treatment to help reach the maximum distance.
It’s supplied on a 200m spool with colour marks to indicate the casting distance and the water depth when using a marker float. From zero to 100 metres, the braid is marked with 50cm sections in green and yellow. From 100 to 200 metres the braid is marked with 50cm sections in red and yellow.
Every 10 metres it’s marked with a short section in black that provides an immediate indication of the distance.
Unit snag bar conversion kit
A conversion kit to fine-tune your Unit bite alarm, this kit includes a newly designed back cover with screw connections and two snag bars. You just need to replace the original Unit back cover with the snag bar conversion kit to get a compact alarm with integrated and removable snag ears.
Substrate finder thermometer
Now you can be able to know the temperature in any water substrate, therefore understanding which water substrate is more suitable for carp at that moment, so you can place your hook bait at precisely the right depth.
