A simple yet effective update on an age-old concept
Panther Martin – one of the oldest US family-run companies in the trade – has been delivering innovative and exciting lures to anglers since 1958 and it kept up that proud tradition at ICAST 2022 with the introduction of its new InLine SWIVELS™.
“We have created a lure that anglers will be clamouring for,” the company’s Cecil Hoge told Tacklestream in an exclusive interview. “A swivel mounted directly onto the shaft of the spinner is such a simple yet incredibly effective modernisation to spinners.
“The integrated InLine SWIVELS™ are attached directly to the wire shaft which goes straight through the blade, like every other Panther Martin® spinner. This removes the need for attaching a standard double eyelet swivel to the front eyelet hoop, keeping the same original Panther Martin lure profile.
“This reduces water resistance and weed snags, making the lures better and easier to cast, retrieve and troll.”
The new lures also have Panther Martin convex/concave blades and are available in ten of the company’s most popular designs, including Regular Gold and Regular Silver, two-spotted spinners – Spotted Black and Spotted Yellow – four holographic – Tiger Green, Silver Blue, Rainbow Trout and Fire Tiger – and two from its Regular Fly Series – Fly Gold/Black and Fly Gold Brown.
Available sizes are: 2 1/16oz, 4 1/8oz and 6 1/4oz.
Panther Martin® is offering a new six pack of its InLine SWIVELS™ in six of its best-selling colours in two sizes – 2 1/16oz and 4 1/8oz.
