TWO local anglers are set to add a design of their own to the list of man’s greatest inventions: the ultimate ‘fishing’ wheel.

Tired of constantly struggling with conventional wheels on their fishing trolleys, Springbok Freshwater Angler Johan Jansen and Protea Rock and Surf Angler Theo Herbst joined forces to find the ultimate solution to their ‘flat’ problem: an all-terrain, multi-purpose and puncture-free wheel.

Starting from scratch, they perfected their invention in six months.

After trying various different inventions ranging from pool noodles and tubes on empty cable reels to balloon tyres, the Ultimate Wheel rolled out.

“We wanted to design a wheel that is light and wide enough not to get stuck in dry or wet sand,” says Jansen.

“This one-of-a-kind wheel in South Africa, that focuses primarily on the angling fraternity, is truly unique. It is maintenance and puncture free, light weight, durable and versatile.”

“A flat tyre will no longer put an abrupt end to angling trips.”

According to Jansen, apart from a fishing trolley, it is also a perfect fit for a golf cart, as well as kayak and jet ski trailers.

The wheel is 420mm in diameter with a vacuum formed HDP body that is UV-friendly, while the bush is made of high quality plastic.

“If needed, the busy and tyre section can be replaced at a minimum cost,” says Jansen.
