Hot Product Press: Old School Baits

Mar 17, 2015

What is it? As the name implies, Old School Baits bring back the action, look and fish-catching ability that the balsa precursors to the modern hard bait had — and still have. What does it do? Remember the Bagley Honey B? How about the Cordell Big O or the original Smithwick’s Devil Horse?

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 26, 2015
