The Reel Story

Diving deeper into Project 2021, it's clear that the whole reel story needed to be shared.  There's months of behind the scene efforts to develop an industry-leading, completely original product.  Then, bring ground breaking Strip Teazers to the market place.  Design phase kept me up at nights.  Test pours of various sizes, shapes and colors burned the midnight oil.  This all came together on August 12, 2020 when my brain child proved it's worth.  Our soft plastic strips did so on an equal footing (fish for fish) with fleet accepted traditional frozen herring bait. 

The details of this fish tale is told thru videos of introduction and testing for the best.  Along with several photos of 3D printed test sizes and a rough sketches that led to the final product.  Transitioning "thoughts on paper" to the CAD design engineers requires a lot of back and forth.  This is when it pays to be ultra fussy before final tooling/injection molds are made.  There's only one chance to get it right!

Testing the roll/spin rate is absolutely critical.  At slow speed, let's say, below 2.0, down to 1.2 mph there must be a roll.  This covers when you slow down to fight a big King, you're not dragging a meat head/strip that goes thru the water like a dead stick.  There has to be a major speed overlap (1 to plus 3 mph), or you'd never get doubles and triples
