ABT takes umbrella rig to ‘next level’

“The ultimate umbrella rig,” says FLW touring pro, Charley Almassey.

ABT Lures says it is taking the umbrella rig to the next level.

The Oakhurst, California, company explains that its ABT Multi-Rig System lets the angler make modifications and adjustments that allow for a multitude of configurations to fit varying fishing conditions and state regulations.

“The unique design of the system makes it superior to other umbrella rigs,” says ABT. “Thanks to our patented screw lock swimming head and removable wire harness, it’s easy to change wire configurations – from as few as two to a maximum of six.

“With the optional ABT Multi-Rig Accessory Kit, you can even switch wire lengths from 3.5” to 10” to suit the fishing situation. No other umbrella rig allows for this kind of versatility or customisation.”

ABT Lures adds that the lead head offers distinct advantages over ordinary rigs. Available in six colours, the polycarbonate head features a barbed bait keeper, making it easier to attach and match swimbaits.

The head is hollow allowing the angler to insert nail weights to make the rig run deeper in the water column.

A variety of accessory kits include buzzbait, spinnerbait and fixed weightless ‘teaser’ wires that allow you to further customise presentation.

Every ABT Multi-Rig comes standard with four 5.5” and one 6.5” .047 stainless steel wires – strong and rugged enough for throwing larger, heavier baits and battling big, hard-fighting game fish.

ABT adds that its wires are also more rigid to avoid getting tangled up with each other.

Allen Borden, former Strike King lure designer, and now President/Founder of ABT Lure Company, says the new system ushers in a new era of umbrella rig performance. “In all respects, we have built a better mousetrap,” he says.

“Nothing out there comes close to offering the versatility, durability and functionality that our new Multi-Rig brings to the water.”

FLW touring pro, Charley Almassey, agrees. “As soon as I began using my ABT rig, I started winning tournaments. I have fished with others out there and not one puts fish in the livewell or gives you the flexibility to adapt quickly and easily to changing conditions or regulations as the ABT Multi-System Rig. Quite simply, it’s the ultimate umbrella rig.”
