The Vapen Red Revolution comes to GAC!

The Vapen Red has arrived @ GAC!
Fly rods have cork handles, that's the rules right? Wrong. For the last few months we have been playing with an amazing rod with a new handle material - and it's awesome! The Vapen Red from Redington features a unique grip, developed in conjunction with Winn Grips of Golf fame, and it is set to start a revolution!
We have used the Vapen Red for a while now - it's awesome!
In the last few years you may have noticed a decline in the quality of cork grips on all types of rods, and although in fact it may not be as bad a situation as some would have you believe, it is getting harder to find top quality cork at a reasonable price. The reason for this is simple. The cork oak tree is first harvested when the tree is around 20 years old, and then every 9 or 10 years after that. The best quality cork isn't produced until the 5th or 6th harvesting and for some trees the best quality isn't until the 8th or 9th harvest! The very best cork always goes to the wine trade and this combined with poor growing conditions over several seasons means there is a lot less quality cork to go around!
The new PowerGrip comes in traditional handle styles
So in an ever expanding fly fishing market, rod designers have been looking at other materials for fly rod handles with mixed success, the most popular so far being the cork composite type grips where real cork granules are mixed with a high density rubber compound, like the handle on the new Greys GR10 range. These handle are durable and grippy even when wet but can be heavy compared to natural cork - not necessarily a bad thing at the thick end of a rod but on paper it can make rod weights look high and put buyers off a little. However this type of handle material is getting lighter all the time and is probably here to stay for now.
Could this be a rival to the time served cork handle?
The PowerGrip featured on the Vapen Red is the latest incarnation of this move away from traditional cork.
To create the Vapen Red’s custom unique grip, Redington collaborated with renowned golf club grip company, Winn Grips. Together they developed an advanced polymer grip that won't slip when wet, feels soft in the hand and reduces fatigue. It also cleans easily, doesn’t chip and helps amplify casting power. You need to try this grip to believe it - it may be a bit 'Marmite' but we love it! But enough about the handle, what about the rod itself?
GAC's Dougie Loughridge bashing some fry feeders with the Vapen Red
The word Vapen means weapon, and as Redington say, you don't cast this rod, you fire it! We were a little worried that the flashy red handle would grab all the attention while the blank would be forgotten about but once you cast the Vapen you will instantly notice that it is a little bit special. Redington’s new X-Wrap construction method involves wrapping one layer of super-high density carbon ribbon inside the blank and another counter-wrapped on the exterior surface. This new X-Wrap construction method provides surprising power with little effort. The technology is so distinct you will actually see the difference in the blank. And the best part? Anglers have the option of combining this X-Wrap technology with the entirely new PowerGrip as the Redington Vapen Red or a traditional cork handle as the Redington Vapen, meaning you can benefit from the new blank technology whatever your handle preference!
The Vapen is also available with a cork handle!
The Redington Vapen and Vapen Red series of rods is available to purchase from Glasgow Angling Centre now both online and instore or why not drop by and try one out on our casting pool to see what all the fuss is about for yourself! Click here to see the range now!

New GoPro Gear for 2014!

GoPro have some exciting new products lined up for the near future, and here at Glasgow Angling Centre we would like to showcase some of our favourites!

Dual Battery Charger
Nobody likes to hang around waiting for batteries to charge - especially if, like us, you have quite a few battery packs to make sure your GoPro makes it through a full day fishing or shooting without missing any action! One of the most frustrating things about the Hero3 and Hero3+ cameras was the lack of an official standalone charger, at least with the old Hero2 the Battery BacPac could charge batteries while you used your camera but the later version of these meant we were left to trust 3rd party chargers to do the job or not use the camera while you charged the batteries. GoPro have solved this problem and made it twice as good by introducing the new Dual Battery Charger!
The GoPro Dual Battery Charger can conveniently charge two GoPro batteries simultaneously via a USB cable powered by most standard USB chargers, the GoPro Wall Charger, Car Charger or even your computer! Dual LEDs indicate the charging status of both batteries - Amber for charging, Green for fully charged. The GoPro Dual Charger is £29.99 from Glasgow Angling Centre - Pre-Order yours now for delivery around the end of December!

Blackout Housing
Using your Gopro for fishing, and even more so Hunting, can require an element of stealth - something that is not always possible with a shiny silver camera strapped to your head or your chest! For years users have been painting the housings or applying vinyl decals to subdue the camera visually, especially when staking or decoying when you are trying to be as invisible as possible! At last the solution come from GoPro in the form of the Gopro Blackout Camera Housing!
The GoPro Blackout Housing keeps a low profile due to it's matte black finish. It is perfect for capturing footage without attracting unwanted attention. The Blackout Housing will fit all Hero3 and Hero3+ cameras and comes with both waterproof and skelton backdoors, plus concealment stickers to eliminate reflections from the LCD window of the housing. It is also waterproof to 40m. The GoPro Blackout Housing is £49.99 from Glasgow Angling Centre - Pre-Order yours now for delivery around the end of December!

Hero3+ Housing BacPac Backdoor Kit
When the GoPro Hero3+ was first launched there was a lot of confusion about whether your existing Battery BacPac or LCD Touch PacBac would fit the new camera. The fact is, yes these BacPacs will fit the camera, but they had to be used in conjunction with the original Hero3 housing (soon to be renamed the Dive Housing) and backdoors. In the near future though, we will have a set of backdoors for the slim housing supplied with the Hero3+!
The GoPro Hero3+ Housing BacPac Backdoor Kit will enable the standard Hero3+ housing to fit a Battery BacPac or LCD Touch BacPac and includes solid, skeleton and touchscreen versions of the interchangeable backdoors. The GoPro BacPac Backdoor Kit is £9.99 from Glasgow Angling Centre - Pre-Order yours now for delivery around the end of December!

Standard Slim Housing
One of the big bonus points for the new GoPro Hero3+ camera is the redesigned housing that is more compact, lighter, and easier to operate due to the bigger buttons and simplified catch assembly. Many Hero3 owners who are happy with their current camera and are not ready to upgrade yet will be glad to hear that this housing is now available on its own, bringing these benefits to the older models. The only sacrifice is the maximum depth it can be used underwater is much less but for most users this is not a big deal!
The GoPro Hero3+ Standard Housing is a slim, lightweight housing that is compatible with Hero3 and Hero3+ cameras. The flat glass lens delivers maximum image sharpness above and below water. Waterproof to 40m. Includes Standard and Skeleton Backdoors. The GoPro Hero3+ Standard Housing is £49.99 from Glasgow Angling Centre - Pre-Order yours now for delivery around the end of December!

Here at GAC we stock every GoPro item that is available and if you need any advice just give us a shout! Buy your GoPr accesories from us either online or instore HERE!
