Reelax has been given a re-invigoration with a renewed passion for fishing and boating, the team at Reelax have replaced the outdated systems with modern manufacturing processes and ordering to ensure a good experience for our clients – and yes Reelax is still proudly Aussie Made on the Gold Coast in our Bethania workshop! We have also given our clients a fresh modern website to peruse their favourite items, in the process of taking new photos of the extensive range of products to really show off the amazing quality each and every item is in the range, and given the logo a bit of a tweak to make it stand out from the crowd in today’s game fishing market.
Reelax had continued growth throughout the early 2000’s with the brand going from strength to strength. They were one of the first ones to release a full gloss catalogue showcasing their range, and was widely available to both distributors and retail clients alike. Being based on the Gold Coast the bikini girls were a prominent feature in these catalogues, and across the advertising platforms in fishing mags such as Bluewater, QFM, Fishing World, Trade-A-Boat, GFAA etc, on websites and at boat shows etc. Ahhh the era of sex selling products!.
Late 1970’s – 2000 – The era they often call the golden era of game fishing, Reelax grew to become one of Australia’s Foremost Game Fishing Equipment Supplier with a lot of hard work and listening to anglers needs. This is when many of the great long term relationships with premium boat manufacturers such as Riviera, Maritimo, Cruise Craft etc began, and the prominence in the game and sport fishing community throughout Australia and worldwide was formed and nurtured.
