New Product: Hundo LTS


Bates Fishing Co. Launches the Hundo LTS – Big Addition to Light Tackle Fishing

June 10. 2024 – Bates Fishing Co. is thrilled to announce the launch of the Hundo LTS (Light Tackle System), the latest innovation in precision angling equipment. Meticulously crafted with industry-leading technology and an uncompromising attention to detail, the Hundo LTS is set to transform the light tackle game for anglers everywhere.

The Hundo LTS features a striking gunmetal grey anodized aluminum frame with elegant gold accents. Expertly CNC’d from 6061-T6 bar stock on Bates Fishing Co.’s state-of-the-art 9-axis machine, this reel is designed for the serious light tackle angler. The standout features of the Hundo LTS include a reengineered spool and braking system, meticulously crafted to enhance the performance of micro-finesse baits and lures.

With the Hundo LTS, finesse fishing reaches unprecedented heights. Bates Fishing Co. has fine-tuned the reel’s Matrix brakes to optimize what’s possible with lure weight and performance, and ensure exceptional distance and control with every cast. The redesigned shallower, skeletonized spool provides improved rotary balance making the relationship between brakes and spool more efficient. This allows for lighter lines and more delicate presentations, empowering anglers to achieve unparalleled precision.

The Advent of the BFS Market and Light Tackle Techniques

The rise of the BFS (Bait Finesse System) market has revolutionized the fishing world, allowing anglers to employ lighter tackle techniques with greater accuracy and effectiveness. Light tackle fishing, which involves the use of lighter lines and smaller baits, demands the highest level of precision and sensitivity from gear. The Hundo LTS is specifically designed to meet these demands, ensuring that every angler, from novice to expert, can enjoy the benefits of this increasingly popular technique.

“The Hundo LTS is already a game-changer for utilizing light conventional tackle on White River trout, for me,” said Chris Cain, VP of Marketing & Brand Development at Bates Fishing Co. “We really think this reel will play well in the emerging BFS market, and we’re proud of the work we’ve put in to make a reel that performs on light tackle without compromising our commitment to the highest quality materials and manufacturing processes in the industry. We hope the Hundo LTS becomes everyone’s favorite new tool to elevate their finesse game.”

At Bates Fishing Co., we are committed to empowering every angler with products that push the boundaries of what’s possible in fishing.

Our dedication to innovation and quality means we continually strive to create gear that supports new and advanced techniques, providing the best technology available. The Hundo LTS embodies this commitment, offering a reel that not only meets but exceeds the expectations of modern anglers.
