ICAST 2020 Coverage


Missile Baits Launches NedBall Head, Neko weights, and an Arsenal of New Patterns


Date: 7/10/20
Location: Virtual Event
Admission: Industry Only
Manufacturer: Missile Baits
Reviewer: Cal

Having made several introductions at this year's Bassmaster Classic, Missile Baits focus at this year's ICAST Online was to introduce some terminal tackle and a host of new colors in established baits. Normally, new colors don't really excite us, but despite this year's virtual show, John Crews made sure to get product in our hand so we could see these colors up close and personal.

The NedBall Head will be available in 1/16, 1/8, & 3/16 oz sizes


NedBall Head: There's no doubt about it. The latest finesse fishing craze is the Ned Rig. The introductions have been steady over the last several years and Missile Baits is no stranger to the party with their popular Ned Bomb. Now, to match up with the Ned Bomb, Missile is offering their very own branded and designed jighead, the NedBall head. Built around a 1/0 VMC TechSet jig hook, this jighead features a ball head, instead of mushroom, so that it can skip and glide over hard cover. There will be three sizes (1/16, 1/8, and 3/16oz) and three colors, green pumpkin, black, and plain. Retail will be $4.99 per pack of 3.


Missile Baits's Neko Weights were previously introduced and have proven to be a hot ticket


Neko Weights: Before Ned there was Neko. Missile Baits's new Quiver worm was their introduction earlier this year and to go along with the Quiver worm are their new Neko Weights. Offered in sizes from one thirty second through three sixteenths of an ounce, these weights are secure, easy to use, and are built with a nice, flat head that you can use to bounce your Neko rigged worm on hard surfaces. We know, because that's exactly how we fished the Quiver earlier this year.

By placing product in our hand prior to the show, Missile Baits launched a strategic, pre-emptive strike

New Colors: We'll let the pictures do the talkin here, but Missile Baits is offering a host of new colors to compliment their established baits. Some are brand new colors, some are established colors added to new baits. Please see the photographs for the name of each color followed by the baits in which the color will be made available.

By placing product in our hand prior to the show, Missile Baits launched a strategic, pre-emptive strike and planted their product firmly in our tackle boxes. With key placement of weapons like this, it's no wonder the company is gaining market share as quickly as they are. It doesn't hurt that their soft plastic baits, jigs, and now terminal tackle help to load up the our fishing rods and deliver smiles all around.
