While the world waits for the pandemic to ease, the team at Australian lure specialist Halco has been hard at work with new additions to the brand’s highly successful Slidog stickbait line.
Following on from the release of the Slidog 105 in 2020, there is a new heavy version of the 105 due to for release very soon. The original 105 weighed in at 28g and while perfect for shallower waters, there was also a market for a heavier, wind-busting version as well. The Slidog 105 Heavy weighs in at an impressive 40g and retains the trademark side-to-side flutter as it falls through the depths, making it ideal to fish deeper through the water column or from shore into a strong headwind situation.
Additionally, the range has been boosted with a smaller version – the new Slidog 85. The 85mm version could best be described as ‘bite sized’ and retains the highly enticing flutter action on the drop that the whole Slidog range is known for. The new model weighs 15g and comes in an impressive range of colours to keep everyone happy.
Other additions to the line-up include several new colours, including the R17 Mustard Grunter (prominent in the Sorcerer and Slidog models) and the H91 Silver Shadow (through a wide selection of Halco models) both featuring Halco’s new Invisi Glo technology.
Other news includes new Halco Stub Traces for species with sharp teeth. These single strand wire traces are ultra-short at 12cm to keep bite offs to a minimum and produced in 27lb, 44lb and 58lb breaking strains complete with the new Halco Zip Clip attachment for fast changing of lures.
