Introduction: Strike King always has a host of introductions each year at ICAST and this year, we managed to hook up with FLW Pro, Cody Meyer to show us around the booth and highlight some of his favorite new baits.


The Rage Swimmer gets a new size.


Rage Swimmer : Strike King has a swimbait body that's been all the "rage". The Rage Swimmer has already been available in 4-3/4" and 3-3/4" sizes, but now the company is making an even smaller 2 3/4" size. Availability is expected at the beginning of August where the bait will sell for $5.49 per pack of 7 at places like TackleWarehouse.

Hard plastic clamshell packaging to preserve each baits' shape.


Introducing Strike King's Nude Series baits.


Nude Series Baits : As a general note, Strike King will be offering all their hard bodied baits in what the company is calling their Nude Series. They'll essentially be unfinished blanks that are ready to be painted or fished right out of the package making it easier for custom painters or aggressive anglers that like to customize their own baits, to have a quality plug painted just how they want.


Do you like fishing clear baits or are you a custom painter looking for blanks?


These are ready to go in either scenario right out of the package.


The KVD Magnum Squarebill gets a new size.

KVD Magnum 4.0 : Strike King adds a new size to their popular KVD Magnum Squarebill. Originally only available in an 8.0 (4-1/2") size, the KVD Magnum will now be available in a slightly smaller 4.0 (measuring 4"). The KVD Magnum 4.0 will weigh 7/8 oz and is rated from 3-7 feet in running depth. The bait will retail for the same $12.99 price and is expected to hit store shelves and web pages in early August. Pre-orders are already available at TackleWarehouse.

4.0 = 4 inches.

Rated from 3 - 7 feet in running depth.
