Modern day bucktails are ANYTHING but BUCKTAILS. Their skirts are made of marabou, mylar, nylon and any number of synthetics. A-Team AK series are among the best producers regardless of fiber material and are again and again to preform with the least amount of effort. With A-Team Tackle it really is fishing SMARTER NOT HARDER that wins. Let us explain.
During the development of the Assassin-X designer Bob Mehsikomer at A-Team realized he had just built a better mousetrap or should we say bladebait.
When water is shed from the surfaces of the A-Team Pounder blade it’s not restricted by the conventional cupping design found on most blades. This is very significant to the angler.
The AK series utilizes two blades mounted on the shaft in an interlocking design. When adding the second blade to the design you in fact add two times the normal resistance in terms of retrieving the bait. With our blades NOT utilizing a cup design we have in fact created a lure that is measurably easier to retrieve and we all know that retrieving is paramount to the effectiveness of the lure.
With less effort necessary to retrieve an A-Team AK, Mya-Boo or Avenger series lure we had the ability to design in added weight, up to 2 full ounces on special orders. Our concept was to add weight within components where necessary allowing for a more natural horizontal presentation rather than a tail dragging appearance found in virtually every other interlocking blade in the market today. This horizontal attitude of the lure is profound and becomes a REAL asset when triggering that MONSTER of your dreams in a figure-8 at boat side. It’s been said that as much as 70% of strikes will take place within five feet of the boat or in the figure-8 itself. Why would you potentially omit a 70% chance of success by not choosing A-Team’s AK-Jr., AK-Huskie, AK-10 or AK-47?
Casting blade baits can truly be an issue especially in the wind or against the wind when boat position is critical and your target requires precision. At A-Team Tackle we have greatly reduced or even eliminated the casting issue merely by adding our weight. Casting is more than simply an exercise; it’s how you present your lure that leads to producing fish. Again at the risk of sounding redundant all of this is in fact due to a well thought out design by people who use these lures everyday and NEED to produce…Bob Mehsikomer leads that design team. Videos capturing these REAL ENVIRONMENT success can be seen on the television series Simply Fishing Extreme TV or on YouTube at:https://www.youtube.com/user/Simplyfishingtv.

This is a tool for when you have reason for BIG. That monster fish that has simply been turning its nose up at insignificant offerings you have presented in the past.
