• At the Tackle & Guns Trade Show in October last year, MAP released the new 2G TKS range, an upgraded range with some lovely new touches, but interestingly there was no 901. In fact, I was blown away by the 801 and was struggling to see the difference between that and the original 901! I was told not to worry, though, and that something good was on its way.
