The new Espada series is a collaborative work between Guerilla Pluggers Cooperative, Japan and Strategic Angler LLC, USA. The lure has been in development since June 2015 and made its official debut for 2016.
The first Espada series prototypes were initially tested in the waters of Cape cod for Big Bluefin Tuna by Captain Domenic Petrarca (Coastal Charter Sportfishing) and then followed up by one of our other Field Testers Captain Ed Nicholas (No Boundaries, Oman) in French Polynesia. During this testing process, two versions were finalized, a floating and sinking model. The Espada series features a proprietarily designed wiring system and a streamlined body to match the most seductive of baits in the ocean.
The Espada series is guaranteed to hold up to the biggest, baddest fish out there, so what are you waiting for? Wield your weapon!
Strategic Angler custom lures have made important changes to its entire lineup! This exciting news comes from the R&D and feedback from our clients and charter captains which is always our primary focus.
All Strategic Angler custom lures will now feature a horizontal tail loop orientation. The MIKROS series, released in January 2014, was the first to sport this upgrade. The WALKER & CRUISER series received this upgrade in April, and the FRANTIC series received its upgrade in October.
The horizontal tail loop showed amazing versatility with its single-hook (or treble hook) capability. The ability to use a lighter, single tail hook allowed for safer unhooking, reduces fish mortality from gut/gill hooking (compared to treble hooks), better casting and enhances the lure action.
Thank you for supporting Strategic Angler lures as we continue to offer the best possible lures for the discerning angler! -MR
