ICAST 2013 | Mustad

The Mustad booth stayed very busy throughout ICAST 2013. They unveiled 2 new terminal tackle series that are sure to help anglers all over the world. The Mustad GRIP-PIN series won Best of Show in terminal tackle and it wasn’t hard for me to see why. With each model being made of extra-strong black nickel, they feature an extremely sturdy bait keeper near the eye of the hook that holds baits in place with no slipping or sliding down the shank of the hook. It looks as if these hooks will be outstanding choices for skipping baits underneath cover as they will allow anglers to get more life out of their favorite soft plastics. In addition to being very practical, I couldn’t bend them or move the GRIP-PIN regardless of how hard I tried. The GRIP-PIN series consists of 4 hook models– the GRIP-PIN Edge, the GRIP-Pin Swim Hook, the KVD GRIP-PIN Hook and the GRIP-PIN Max Hook.

Mustad also released the FASTACH Series, which includes both weights and ball bearing swivels. These products allow for very quick and easy weight and lure changes on the water. Not only is it an efficient option for anglers, but it also allows for a unique presentation as the hook will naturally “sway” behind the weight when it’s at rest on the bottom. I can see this being very effective for finesse worms, small grubs and even tubes.
