Solar Tackle A1 Rod pod

A1 Range

Solar Tackle’s all-new Black, aluminium bankware is a hotly anticipated launch, and it’ll be unveiled in full to the public for the first time at this year’s CARP ZWOLLE show.

With Solar Tackle’s renowned reputation in bankside hardware, the A1 range represents the next level in alloy tackle development.

Apart from being extremely lightweight, and in an understated matt black finish, we’ve strengthened the areas of stress normally associated with this type of hardware. 

Built by anglers, for anglers, this gear is designed for performance and longevity, as well as being stylish and feature packed.

Rod pods modeled on Solar’s market-leading Worldwide Pod, banksticks, buzz bars, stabilisers and stage stands are all included in the range and available to see and play with on the Solar stand.



SP Pro-Brolly System

Following the introduction of Solar’s SP shelters in January 2018, the UK brand is thrilled to now have it’s SP Pro Brolly System ready for release.

Versitile, cleverly designed and spec’d with top-end features and materials including their highest spec, Solartex+, breathable, coated fabric, while remaining lightweight and compact when packed down. The patented block system with 8.5 mm HD fiberglass poles maximizes internal space while adding strength and stability. The flat-back profile further increases the internal space and also boasts Solar’s new PermaVent airflow system.

The full front infil panel can be removed and the profile of the brolly can be altered, making it wider and lower to suit your preference and each situation. There are also multiple door options, full infil, mozzi-mesh and PVC all supplied.

Giving that finishing touch that Solar is so well known for is our machined, aluminium bell cap. Supplied with a heavy-duty, rip-stop groundsheet and supplied with 4 storm poles and heavy-duty pegs, this is the full package for the serious angler.


Solar Tackle Spider Frond

SP Spider Bivvy

Such has been the success of our Quick-Up Shelter, we’ve tailored the design towards a ‘traditional’ carp shelter, The Spider. Utilising the Easy-Loc leg system, and a block system that aids a fast set up, stability and style, The Spider is quick and easy to set up and pack down. The shelter is based around the square footprint of the Quick Up Shelter too, maximizing internal space, giving a spacious, and easily-organised environment. 

A peak, removable, windowed front/door system gives flexibility and even allows the bivvy profile to be altered to a degree.

Finished in Solar’s highest spec, Solartex+, breathable, coated fabric, and boasting Solar’s new, PermaVent airflow system, The Spider is one item not to be missed at this year’s Carp Zwolle show.


Solar Tackle Bankmaster-Guest-Chair

Bankmaster Chairs

Following on from the huge success of Solar’s SP chairs, 2019 sees the introduction of their new, Bankmaster chairs, catering to a slightly lower price point. Three chairs make up the range, a guest chair, a recliner chair and a wide recliner chair. All are comfortable, high quality with an ultra-stable steel frame built for durability.

As with all Solar chairs and bedchairs, these boast Solar’s ingenious, one-touch, Spring-Loc leg adjustment system. The sculpted 2D mattresses features a fleece head section providing lumbar support and air-flow. Front and rear leg-locking clips ensures the legs won’t fold while in use either.
