RAIDER

Raider Jigs have been a basic bread and butter lure for folks targeting wahoo on iron on the long range boats for well over a decade. There were some issues regarding tradename rights, some ethical issues over that dispute..., in addition we had experienced a lack of supply, and even worse what's currently being sold as Raider Jigs are no longer the same product in terms of construction materials. The old models were produced by a fellow from Australia who has since retired. The current Raider Jigs are now made of steel rather than brass, and their price is far higher than can be rationalized given that fact. Steel is not as good a production material as was the original brass. Brass drops faster, costs more and gets bit better! While we sold the USA Raiders in the past (and these were a knock off of Perry Seehoe's original designs), at this time we do not. Given the production materials and costs it simply does not make sense. Add to that the fact that we've produced a very similar lure made from brass, a lure closer to the original product in terms of performance, and we simply see no reason to stock the lure being marketed as Raider any longer.

Toro Tamer Wahoo Ripper
BRASS IS BEST!
- Cast and Rip Bait For Wahoo and more...

We've done some upgrading of this wahoo classic  the hook is even better now, and the prism tape is applied to both sides of the lure and is non-graduated. We've increased the size of the welded ring at the nose of the lure for a better swing on the retrieve. These are the changes, but some things stayed the same. Lure weight is still 125 and 200 grams, in both chrome and gold finish and they are still made from solid BRASS so they drop fast and are super strong. Here's the downside, the cost of brass is what put the larger 5 and 7 ounce Krocodile spoons out of production, and the currently marketed "raider" jigs out of production - those lures would have ended up costing $30 or more...at dealer cost, given the price of the brass.

No matter the  expense, BRASS IS THE KEY TO THIS LURE! And, we maintain that construction unlike some low cost imitations of this lure which will be seen on the market AND offered for even higher prices than our brass produced lures - that's YOUR benefit from our factory direct production!
(note, "raider" jigs will be coming back this year but the new ones are NO LONGER MADE OF BRASS - they are 2 ounces lighter in weight and NO LONGER THE SAME LURE - 2 ounces is about 60 grams, over 25% lighter in weight...and that means they won't sink as fast and won't get the same response from fish as the original Raiders
®. Also note the "new" steel version Raiders® will cost you the same or more than what we are offering - look at the production materials, quality and price).

We did not change to a cheaper metal, because changing the lure's production material changes the sink rate and that kills the lure's fish catching ability. Brass IS HEAVIER, IT SINKS FASTER AND GETS BIT BETTER. That's the reason the original Raiders were made from brass, it's better and worth the extra money. In this case, we are offering a true brass lure for the same or less than the cheaper steel version that's being marketed. Our efficiencies and dedication to bringing the best values to our clients speaks for itself - don't accept a cheaper substitute, or a more expensive inferior design.

The original lures name represented their weight in grams, the model 200 and 125 referred to their gram weight, 200 and 125 gm. There's a reason we don't go to steel for the product, it's simply not as good. The lures need to be produced from brass - just like the Krocs. When the original heavy 7, 5, 3 oz Krocodile spoons were copied and made with anything other than brass they failed to catch fish as well. They simply weren't as good as the original!

History: the original Raider® was produced by a company that lost their trade name...and then went out of business. They were an Aussie firm, very nice guy owned the company and designed the lure back in 1993 (Perry See Hoe). They were produced in Australia and later in Thailand. They had to change their name to Spanyid in the USA after losing their trade name through an unfortunate situation...they were ripped off you might say. They went out of business in 2008, I believe (Perry left the firm at that point). There are no original Raider® lures on the market these days, though there is a firm producing lures under that trade name, that lure is not made of brass and weighs over 25% less than the originals. We've tried to follow the original specifications, make some improvements upon the original, and  maintain the right materials, sink rates, lure weights, and effectiveness.
