13 Fishing- ICAST 2022 New Products

Every year, the Team at 13 Fishing works relentlessly to bring our most innovative ideas to the ICAST floor. This year is no different!

This article is giving you a front row seat to a lineup that has been specifically crafted in conjunction with one of the most legendary anglers out there… Gerald GMAN Swindle.

If you are attending ICAST, be sure to stop by the 13 Fishing booth to hear about these amazing new products from Swindle himself. We are at booth 2220.

Two-time Bassmaster Elite Series angler of the year and one of the sport’s all-time fan favorites Gerald Swindle has spent the last two seasons working diligently with the 13 Fishing product team to create the best signature series rods and reels ever made.

The new product line brings Swindle’s wealth of experience and 13 Fishing’s modern approach together in a way that not only embodies Swindle’s intense work ethic, but also holds up to the proving grounds of the world’s toughest tournament trail.

We’ve measured it, no one in the sport swings harder.

That’s why these blanks are meticulously brutalized by the man himself and built on the next generation of Japanese PVG36T. Personally tuned by GMAN, the Meta series gives each rod seamless transition and stands alone as the best rod series at an attainable value.

A steadfast principle for Mr. Swindle, you shouldn’t have to survive on beans and rice in order to afford good gear.
