Berkley Pro Tech Tommy Glide Lure For Sale
They say two is better than one, and a glide with natural presentation is the key to success when targeting smart fish like mulloway or barra. The Berkley Pro Tech Tommy Glide Lure provides just that, with a unique design that mimics the natural movement of baitfish.
Berkley Pro Tech Tommy Glide lures boast a distinctive feature: a two-piece jointed body. Here's the fascinating part: "Tommy" signifies twin when you look up the meaning of the name online, aligning perfectly with the lure's design. The body is divided into two sections, one with the tail and the other with the head. Though not identical, the concept of twinning is brilliantly executed in its assembly and naming as the Tommy Glide.
Enough about the name; let's dive into the fantastic performance of these lures! The split body design gives them an incredibly realistic swimming action like the natural baitfish that inhabit our Aussie waters. It's like an irresistible treat for barra lurking in the mangrove shadows, mulloway hiding in holes, and it can even lure a big Flathead out of its hidey-hole. Tommy Glide lures are the real deal!
The Berkley Pro Tech Tommy Glide Lures showcases a remarkable S-shaped action. You can conveniently manipulate this characteristic by adjusting the retrieval speed. This distinct swim action, reminiscent of a serpentine movement, stimulates an almost lifelike portrayal of baitfish in the water. By modulating the retrieve speed, anglers can control the lure's swim pattern, either making it glide smoothly through the water for a more relaxed prey or impart a slightly more compelling, frenzied motion to emulate a distressed baitfish.
Berkley recommends using the Tommy Glide with a slow to medium retrieve for maximum effectiveness. Its adaptable swim action, adjusted as needed, makes it a versatile lure for various fishing scenarios in saltwater or freshwater.
