Thought I would give everybody a little sneak preview of the New Screw Lock Shimmer Swimmer. (Not sure on the name right now but for now that is what I am calling it) Got a little testing to do today and tomorrow for the blades I am going to put on each hook. Believe what I have on there now will work and is what I want but would like to test these good before releasing them. I have done some testing and these things swim good just like the original Shimmer Swimmer. From what testing I have done on these and the original, believe what I have in my mind will work but just want to be sure. Also have to work on the pricing for each of these before I can release.
These are done on Mustad Hooks and is a little lighter wire than the Gama we use on the Shimmer Swimmer. Should make for a little easier hook penetration but should still be plenty stout enough for any Bass you are going to catch on them. The Screw Lock should solve the problem for those that did not want to re-tie when putting another swim bait on. The one on the far left is a 4/0 hook. For now I am stocking those in 3/16 oz, 1/4 oz and 3/8 oz. I do have a 1/2 oz version of this available but for now I am not stocking. If the demand is there then I will and will just have to see how all that plays out. The middle one is a 6/0 hook and I am stocking that one in 3/16 oz, 1/4 oz, 3/8 oz and 1/2 oz. The one on the far right is a 8/0 hook and am also stocking that one in sizes 3/16 oz, 1/4 oz, 3/8 oz and 1/2 oz.
I am hoping to get all my testing done and the pricing set so that I can release these by Sunday afternoon or evening. By then I also hope to have these loaded on my web site and will make another post once i do.
