Owner Showcases Some
Sharp New Offerings
||Las Vegas, NV
||Buyers & Press Only
Owner is known
for making some of the sharpest hooks on the market. Some people may not realize
that they also make various other products like rigs, terminal tackle, and even
baits. With several new products to show off at ICAST, the Owner crew was eager
to walk us through each item.
TwistLOCK JigRig is specially designed to fish soft plastics on the bottom. This
unique hook features a TwistLOCK centering-pin spring for easy soft plastic
rigging, and a very unique snagless sinker attached to a cross eye via a split
ring. This allows the weight and hook to be free-floating from each other,
making for improved casting and more action underwater. The hook itself features
a 3X strong forged shank, black chrome finish, and super needle point. JigRigs
come in packs of 2 from sizes 2/0 to 5/0, weights between 1/8 to 3/8 ounce, and
are priced at a suggested retail of $8.00 per pack.
