Sebile mixes it up
with the new Magic Swimmer Soft Pro and Spin Shad
make rigging easier there is a hook slot through the lure. The finishes on the
Soft Pro lures look great and there are both solid and translucent patterns.
There will be two sizes available and the lures are designed to be fished in
both fresh and salt water.
A closer look at the head of the
Soft Pro, notice the trademark Sebile logo
Spin Shad: Taking
home a win in the hard lure category was the Sebile Sin Shad. The spin shad is
basically a lipless crankbait and a spinner all combined into one. The lure is
designed to mimic a fleeing baitfish, or even a school of baitfish. The main
body looks like s small crankbait but the minute we picked it up we noticed how
heavy this little compact bait was. The lure is made out of Bismuth, a heavy
alloy metal and the lure is finished with a very detailed reflective surface
treatment that helps give the lure a more realistic profile as well as added
flash in the water.
The Spin Shad is designed to offer
the best attributes of a lipless crankbait and a spinner all in one
Behind the lure’s main
body is a blade that mimics the body in profile and design. It looks like a tail
or even a second schooling fish behind the slightly larger molded body. This
blade is mounted on an in line swivel that allows the blade to spin at all
retrieve speeds. We asked Patrick Sebile to demonstrate the action of the lure
and sure enough the blade would spin the second the lure was retrieved. There
are a number of ways to fish this lure including straight retrieve, retrieve and
pause as well as jigging. When the lure is jigged it actually jumps up and down
while the blade flutters enticingly behind it.
The Spin Shad features a blade
with the same profile as the main body of the lure
The Spin Shad comes armed
with a belly hook and a second hook behind the rear blade much like a
traditional inline spinner. The bait will be available in the next few months in
two different sizes, these are 3/4oz. and 1 1/4oz. and there will be six
patterns in total.
A look at the top of the lure and
the back of the blade. The unique blade is designed to rotate at any speed
Sebile knows how to catch fish, and holds an impressive number of world records,
and it is no surprise that he knows how to build quality baits. The Magic
Swimmer Soft Pro and Spin Shad both offer anglers new products that give anglers
more freedom in which to approach different applications. The Magic Swimmer Soft
Pro now gives anglers a weedless version of the popular hardbait, and the
adjustable tungsten weights allow anglers to get really creative. The Spin-Shad
on the other hand blends two types of lures together into a new
crankbait-spinner hybrid that can be used at a wide range of depths.
Congratulations to Sebile for a strong showing in both hard and soft bait
