How exactly does one remake a classic, already exceptional bass bait? That’s the self-imposed question the tackle techs at Z-Man asked themselves about a year ago, as they stood before a big white drawing board. What they came up with was the new Z-Man SlingBladeZ Spinnerbait.
The objectives were clear: To re-engineer a new breed of spinnerbait. To optimize wire material, bend and metal blades so they reverberate perfect bass music—those powerful, low-frequency vibrations fish perceive and attack via lateral line. And to imbue the spinnerbait with a talent for tracking straight as an arrow at all times and at any retrieve speed. Plus, a few more goodies up its sleeve .
Checkout what pro Luke Clausen had to say about the new spinnerbait from Z-Man in this video.
