Best New Metal Lure
Strike Pro and Rapala will be among the front runners in the EFTTEX Best New Metal Lure Award category. The former will be introducing its Strike Pro Bug Wing Spinner, which promises better performance than conventional spinners; the latter has launched the double-bladed Blue Fox Vibrax Super Bou, which it says creates ‘a ton of flash, noise and turbulence’ in the water.
Fierce competition will come from metal lure specialist Extreme Fishing from Russia. It has entered its Extreme Fishing Hypnotiser, which features a new light-reflecting varnish for extra attraction.
Look out too for the Molix Lover Buzz, designed in conjunction with US pro-angler Mike Iaconelli; and also the Title SHot Spoon from US company Fin-tech, which is described as the ‘most deadly, versatile spoon ever designed for fishing heavy cover to open water’.
