Throwback Thursday: We’re going back 18 years to EFTTEX 2000 in Lyon, France, one of the first EFFTEX exhibitions for PowerPro. At the time, performance benefits of PowerPro were not yet known in Europe even though the U.S. market had accepted PowerPro as the “Easy to fish line.” EBT (Enhanced Body Technology) revolutionized the fish-ability of superlines with improved casting, resistance to burying in the spool, and far easier knot-tying performance.
This throwback photo shows Division President Konrad Krauland (right) with former partner Daniel Paluch (left), who was responsible for European sales and distribution operations at the time.
Hey, Konrad, is that a tie or a napkin around your neck? And what happened to your hair?
