Best New Metal Lure
The Finnish lure giant Rapala was looking to repeat last year’s success with an extension to the Blue Fox Super Bou range – the Super Bou Spinner Bait. It is described as having a lively hand-tied full dress marabou skirt on two heavy-duty VMC hooks to create an undulating and thick body.
It was up against the Sakura Balatuna from Sert, a new version of the Eddystone Eel from Eddystone Tatler, the Rhino Black Cat Hitman Twin Spoon from Zebco Europe, Strike Pro’s Astra Vibe and the Sea Falcon Long Sider from Bluing Hearts.
Halco Tackle once again travelled half-way across the world from Australia to attend EFTTEX and entered its all-new Halco Outcast in the competition.
Eventual winner was Zebco Europe with its Black Cat Hitman Twin Spoon (pictured). Sert was second with the Balatuna (pictured).
