FRESH ::: THINKING Welcome to Matrix, the new British tackle brand for match and feeder anglers of all abilities and pleasure anglers who use match styles and methods. The ethos behind Matrix is simple. To design and produce tackle which helps you catch more fi sh. Tackle which meets your needs and how you fi sh, using the latest methods, offers innovative solutions and provides excellent value.

As you will see when looking at the new Matrix product range, there are some outstanding products which offer a superior alternative to what is already available. We call it fresh thinking. Highlights include items from many different product groups ranging from rods and luggage through to feeders and small baiting accessories. The Carpmaster rod range, designed for the largest section of modern match fi shing (commercial waters), includes a revolutionary feeder rod design and made-up transport solution. Since their launch last year these rods have received fantastic reviews by the angling press and anglers are now fi nding out just how good they are. Horizon rods, developed for maximum distance casting, and designed in conjunction with top feeder anglers who often fish at 90m plus, offer anglers fishing large waters stunning casting performance combined with sensible fish-playing actions. Seatboxes are now an important part of modern angling, which is why we have developed the new Matrix Superbox. Based on popular 25mm legs, the minimalist black chassis oozes class and the drawer and tray units are some of the best engineered examples you’ll ever see. To complement the seatbox is a range of hardware called Snag-free. These products feature a revolutionary snag-free knuckle design which greatly reduces the chance of line getting snagged in the mechanism. There is also a new pole roller which comes with a new feature called a ground spike. This enables you to use the roller directly at ground level, perfect for fisheries where there is a small bank behind the peg. As a company that looks at providing new solutions, we pay special attention to the smaller things too, things that can really make a difference to your catch rate. The new Evolution Method feeders are a classic example of our ethos. Available in two models these new feeders let you use larger hookbaits like large pellets and boilies more effectively and the new ‘Squeeze and Feed’ mould, which can be used with almost all Method feeders, is quite simple the most effective way to load a Method feeder we have ever seen. Nearly all of the products in the Matrix range are unique. Designed and tested by us, for specific uses, they offer an alternative to what’s already available and in many instances a better fi sh-catching solution. Matrix - it’s fresh thinking.

MATRIX RODS The new Matrix rod range has received excellent reviews by all who have seen them. The range covers a wide range of match and general fishing styles and has been developed for both UK and European anglers. There are currently four ranges. The Carpmaster has been designed for the latest match carp fishing methods and covers everything from short range feeder work to long range Method feeder fishing and also all float methods. The Horizon range is designed for long range feeder fishing, primarily on large European waters where distance casting is essential. The Ultron range covers a broad spectrum of float and feeder methods and offers excellent value for money, whilst the Reflex float rods have superbly refined actions more suitable for traditional stick float and waggler fishing. Finally there are two poles. The Finesse is a fl agship 13m match anglers pole designed for international competition fishing throughout Europe where length limits are imposed. The Power X offers outstanding power and value making it suitable for carp fishing in the UK and harbour (line to hand) fishing in Europe.

To complement the Superbox 1 there is also a range of additional drawer and storage units plus a fantastic Matrix Trolley which has a revolutionary twin wheel pivot system.

To suit most of the popular boxes now available all Matrix seatbox accessories feature a 25mm round Snag-Free fitting which provides an easy to adjust and secure connection. The range currently includes a selection of Accessory Arms, Groundbait Bowl Hoops and a Pole Sock with Roosts, Side Trays and Feeder Arms to be added throughout this year. Matrix also produces a brilliant Super Flat Pole Roller in two sizes, with a unique Ground Spike which enables the roller to be used without the legs - perfect for high sloping banks, other Rollers are planned for later this year. Also in the range are three brollies including the much talked about Space Brolly which has a revolutionary rib system which delivers much more usable space under the canopy. This is available in two versions and includes a flat back version called X3.

DEVELOPMENT & REVIEWS

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT To enable Matrix to produce tackle suited to the specific requirements of anglers throughout Europe, we have a very active in-house design and development department. This is the direct link between our ideas and our manufacturers and gives us excellent control of both the design and final quality of all Matrix products.

Almost all of the products in the Matrix range has been designed from scratch, using our ‘Fresh Thinking’ philosophy. The design process starts with an idea for a new product that will enable you to fish more effectively, often as a result of discussions with top anglers. This idea is then visualised by our design team and specified to deliver maximum performance. Initial prototypes are then produced for testing, adjusted and tested again until we are totally satisfied with their performance before going into production.

superb casting and fish-playing actions, but are also easy to transport. Feeders designed for use with bigger hookbaits, because that’s what anglers need as fish in match waters get larger. A Method Mould that automatically ejects a loaded Method with a simple squeeze rather than having to be pulled out. A brolly which offers more usable space than a standard brolly design. 10 AnglingTımes

These products are all a result of the having our own design team working closely with anglers to produce the very best solutions for match and feeder anglers.

TUESDAY, OCTOB ER 25,

To be brutally honest we don’t produce products to get good reviews, we produce them to get good results for anglers. However we realise that many anglers are influenced by reviews and see them as an indication of quality, so we are very proud that many of our new 14 AnglingTımes products have been so well received by independent experts.

Well, although I thought that the rod was well worth the money, personally I would have preferred it with a much longer handle (18 inches), so maybe I wouldn’t invest, unless I could get it fitted with an extention piece.”

The new Matrix rod range has received excellent reviews by all who have seen them. The range covers a wide range of match and general fishing styles and has been developed for both UK and European anglers. There are currently four ranges. The Carpmaster has been designed for the latest match carp fishing methods and covers everything from short range feeder work to long range Method feeder fishing and also all float methods. The Horizon range is designed for long range feeder fishing, primarily on large European waters where distance casting is essential. The Ultron range covers a broad spectrum of float and feeder methods and offers excellent value for money, whilst the Reflex float rods have superbly refined actions more suitable for traditional stick float and waggler fishing. Finally there are two poles. The Finesse is a fl agship 13m match anglers pole designed for international competition fishing throughout Europe where length limits are imposed. The Power X offers outstanding power and value making it suitable for carp fishing in the UK and harbour (line to hand) fishing in Europe.

CARPMASTER RODS

THE SHORT ROD REVOLUTION Designed for the very latest modern match methods on commercial waters, all Carpmaster models can be easily transported in a made-up state thanks to the positioning of the guides and the unique transport rod holder block.

The Carpmaster 8’, 9’ and 10’ Feeder rods have a unique design which eliminates the joint in the fish-playing area of the rod and provides more fish playing control.

EASY TRANSPORT

Carpmaster rods are easy to transport in a made-up state. The transport rod holder block holds the sections parallel to each other and firmly in place without the need for rod bands. At the heart of the easy transport system is the rod holder transport block. Assembling a Carpmaster rod is easy to do. Firstly remove the sections from the rod holder block. All feeder rods have a separate short butt section which is easy to place on the main section. This has been designed to remove the main joint from the playing section of the rod. The hook ring keeper has a fold flat hinged design which makes it easy to attach your hook, a link swivel, or feeder bead to.

CARPMASTER RODS

CARPMASTER RODS

CARPMASTER 8', 9’ FEEDER

Since their launch in 2011, the Carpmaster range has been a huge success. Designed especially for the latest methods, Carpmaster rods are built to the highest standards and incorporate design features that make them easier to transport and better to fish with.

• Designed for up to 25m

The outstanding feeder rods have a unique section design that uses a separate short butt section and a one piece middle section which takes the quivertips. This effectively removes the joint from the playing area of the rod for a seamless playing action. The short butt sections provided more power than normal short rods which improves casting accuracy and also increases fish-playing control when catching large carp over 10lbs.

• Short handle for easy manoeuvring

HORIZON RODS

POWER 路 ACTION 路 INDICATION Matrix Horizon feeder rods are designed for extreme long range feeder fishing on large waters and can cope with large loaded feeders. All models have a short butt section with an extra long spigot joint which provides more usable casting power in the lower section of the rod and a slimmer profile. The middle and tip sections are longer than standard 3 section rods and deliver a smooth fish-playing action and maximise tip speed on long casts.

Matrix Consumer Brochure pgs 1-21.indd 12

24/05/2012 13:21:44

Horizon rods are easy to transport in a made-up state. The transport rod holder block holds the sections parallel to each other and firmly in place without the need for rod bands.

The butt section of all Horizon Feeder rods has an extra long spigot. This extra length stiffens the base of the rod for increased casting power.

Large, low profile guides are fitted to the Horizon rods. These guides are spaced for maximum casting performance and are suitable for both mono or braid. The interchangeable tips blend in to the main rod perfectly and are tapered to maximise bite detection. All have large guides for easy passage of shock leaders.

HORIZON RODS

HORIZON RODS Horizon feeder rods have been designed especially for long range fi shing on the largest venues in Europe. Built on top quality high modulus carbon blanks, using advanced taper designs for maximum casting performance, the Horizon rods maximise casting distance whist retaining sensible fi sh-playing actions required by top match anglers. All Horizon rods have a short butt section with a long spigot joint. This increases the stiffness and raw casting power at the base of the rod enabling massive distances to be achieved. The middle and tip sections of all models are longer than normal rods, which improves fi sh-playing action and also helps transfer the power from the base to the tip of the rod. This design also makes madeup transportation easy with the use of a unique transport rod holder block. Horizon feeder rods have top quality distance casting guides.

All quivertips are balanced to the blacks action and have large low friction guides for use with shock leaders.

Common Features • High modulus carbon blank • Separate long handle butt section with extra long spigot joint for increased stiffness and casting power • Large low profile guides for maximum casting performance are suitable for mono or braid

HORIZON TIPS • Replacement tips for Horizon Feeder rods • Identical to the original tips supplied with the rods • Carbon construction for better bite detection when fishing at distance

ACCESSORIES INTRODUCTION

ACCESSORIES

As anglers we fully understand how the little things like accessories can make a huge difference to your catch rate. Within the accessory range you will see Method feeders with unique designs that make using bigger hookbaits more effective and a mould that is so simple to use we wonder why we didn’t think of it before. There is also a range of pole pots with bright coloured interchangeable tops which makes cupping in tight to the far bank easier to judge. A full range of elastication products called Linx enable you to colour code your elastic set-ups, a range of high quality pole floats to cover almost all eventualities and a new range of hooks designed for modern methods.

METHOD FEEDERS

The new Matrix Evolution Method feeders have been designed to meet the latest needs of match anglers. The In-line versions have a unique design that enables the feeder to be changed without removing the hooklength. The Hooped version has a ring of hoops around the edge to pellets or groundbait in place whilst allowing big hook baits like boilies or large pellets to be used. The Open version has no fins or hoops for short casts and a quicker release of bait.

IN-LINE HOOPED METHOD FEEDER • Designed for mid and long range casting • In-line design conforms to all fishery safety rules • Unique quick change design • Hoops around the rim hold groundbait or pellets securely without inhibiting the use of large hookbaits

The ‘Squeeze and Feed’ Method Mould is the best mould we have ever used. It works with a wide range of different consistency groundbait mixes and also pellets from micro up to 2mm. Simply fill the mould, push the feeder into the groundbait (or pellets), turn the mould over, squeeze the base and the loaded Method drops out cleanly.

You can use groundbait or pellets in the ‘Squeeze and Feed’ Mould. The unique design enables you to use a wide range of different mixes (including sticky versions) and pellets up to 2mm.

METHOD FEEDER MOULD • For use with all Matrix Method feeders • Deep design lets you load up the Method with morebait than normal moulds if you want • Soft malleable material for easy ‘Squeeze and Feed’ release of feeder CODE GFR050 GFR061

FILLING THE MOULD

LOADING THE FEEDER Simply push the feeder into the loaded mould. The deep design creates a taller mound of groundbait than other moulds giving the fish a more concentrated target to aim at.

SQUEEZE AND FEED MOULD FEATURES 1. The deep moulded ends accommodate most method feeders and provide more movement for compression. 2. The unique design of the base, with central slots and compression sides, enables the feeder to be ‘squeezed’ out. 3. The small holes in the base of the mould prevent a vacuum forming during compression producing a better loading.

Matrix Consumer Brochure pgs 48-68.indd 55

Once compressed all you need to do is turn the mould over and squeeze the sides together along the full length. This squeeze pushes the feeder out into your palm.

READY TO CAST Because the loaded Method feeder is squeezed from the mould (as opposed to being pulled out) the bond between the groundbait and the feeder is intact and strong.

POLE FLOATS

POLE FLOATS

The Matrix range of pole floats covers almost all match fishing situations from carp fishing with big baits to delicate bloodworm fishing.

CARP

SERIES 1

The Carp Float Range will cover almost all modern match methods used on commercial waters. Build to withstand the punishment of catching big weights all models have over-sized tips for use with large baits and either carbon of fibreglass stems. Fibreglass stems (Series 3 & 8) go through the body and into the hollow tip.

• Dumpy diamond shape for stability • Thick hollow plastic tip for bigger baits • Carbon stem for toughness • Great all round big bait float

DESCRIPTION Series 1 0.10gr Series 1 0.20gr Series 1 0.30gr Series1 0.40gr

PENCIL In recent years slim bodied ‘Pencil shaped’ floats have become more popular with both carp and silver fish anglers. The three models in the Matrix range covers all requirements. The Series 4 has a thick tip for using with large baits, whilst the Series 5 and 6 have slimmer tips for use with smaller baits and silver fish fishing. All have plastic tips which can be accurately shotted.

SILVER FISH The first of the new Silver fish floats from Matrix are versatile patterns suited to a wide range of styles. More floats will follow in this range during 2012. The Series 7 is a versatile float for shallow water and has a good sized plastic tip which can easily be shotted. The Series 9 offers brilliant versatility and is designed for fishing on the bottom with a wide range of baits, whilst the Series 10 is designed for fine presentation and has a fibre tip for excellent sensitivity.

SIGHT TIP Designed for fishing medium and deep stillwaters, the Sight Tip floats offer fantastic sensitivity in rough conditions. Both have long stems for stability and extra long carbon tips, with thicker plastic sight tips. These extra long, thin tips keep the body under the surface skim and combined with the long stems reduce the amount of movement on the float.
