Storm will be releasing a new line of Arashi crankbaits (Japanese for storm). These crankbaits have a lot of interesting features and Brandon Palaniuk just nearly showed how effective they can be had he not made an inadvertent error on day two of the Bassmaster Elite Series tournament. He caught a pile of big smallmouths on these new crankbaits from Storm this past week as you can see by the chew marks on these baits. The new series features two square bills (3 and 5) that are silent, feature computer chip lips and a self centering line tie that never needs to be tuned. They also have the front hook hanger turned so that you can put bigger hooks on there without them hanging on each other. There will also be a flat sided crankbait that dives to 7 feet and a 10 foot standard diver. Both the 7 and 10 will have rattles. They will be offered in 12 to 15 colors, several new ones shown here.
We’re anxious to test the auto-tune line tie. Apparently it can never go out of tune. That will be very interesting if it holds true.
