Hot Product Press: Owner Pivot Head

Mar 3, 2015

What is it? Owner’s Pivot Head. What does it do? It brings a new dimension to the swing head craze by offering a head shape and weights that are more conducive to swimming. How do I use it?

Feb 17, 2015

Rapala’s engineers wanted to create the most realistic dying baitfish imitator to hit the lake. How do I use it?
