Duckett will expand into reels

Duckett will expand into reels

Alabama Bassmaster Elite Series pro Boyd Duckett told BassFan today that his company, Duckett Fishing, will expand into the reel market. It's produced white Micro-Magic rods exclusively since it was founded in 2009.

"We'll probably launch at ICAST in 2014," he said. "We're in the process of getting all of the sub-components farmed out. That's the hardest thing to do with reels, but I'm dead on it now.

"We should have the prototypes built by next fall. It's going to be a high-end reel with some creative things. One of the reasons I haven't done this before was because of my (previous) association with Pure Fishing – I didn't want to be competing with the Revo."

He said the company has hired a reel designer with vast experience in the industry.

"We're going to start with baitcasting, but I fully intend to be in the spinning-reel game, too."
