UPDATE - 1/26/2017
- WONDERFUL NEWS!!! BRAID HAS BEEN PURCHASED BY ANOTHER FIRM, A 40 YEAR PLAYER IN THE SPORTFISHING INDUSTRY.  WE TALKED WITH THEM THIS WEEK, THEY ARE WELL AWARE OF THE DEFICIENCIES OF THE PRIOR GENERATION BRAID PRODUCTS AND ARE ALREADY WELL ON THEIR WAY TO CORRECT ISSUES WITH MARAUDERS. SPECIFICALLY, THE NEW RINGS, SWIVELS AND THRU WIRE CONSTRUCTION WILL BE AS THEY SHOULD BE - MEANING THE PRODUCT WILL BE BACK TO THE QUALITY WE EXPECT AND THAT YOU DEMAND. GIVE US A FEW WEEKS TO ALLOW BRAID TO BUILD INVENTORY AND WE'LL AGAIN HAVE THESE WONDERFUL LURES BACK ON-LINE! Stay tuned...

Over the past two years we've been very clear in letting folks know that Braid was not producing their best lures, in the manner in which they used to be made. Marauders were failing, almost 100% failure rate on the long range boats. Understand, these lures were bread and butter for wahoo trolling, and the past batch were produced more cheaply. The Marauders  could not hold a fish without failure. We advised folks not to purchase the product, as a result of the reports from the Royal Polaris skipper Roy Rose. We were very clear in passing along that negative information, which was of benefit to anglers who might otherwise shell out money for an almost worthless product. I am very happy indeed to now be able to report that Braid has been sold, their new owner is well aware of the prior problems and has already moved to address the weakness of the more recently produced Braid products. Things are improving, dramatically improving, and we'll be glad to once again represent these lures to the sportfishing enthusiast. - Mark

WE HAVE DEACTIVATED THE ORDERING OPTION FOR THESE PRODUCTS UNTIL THE NEW UPDATED PRODUCT IS AVAILABLE, AND THAT'S COMING SOONER THAN LATER.

 

BRAID SPEEDSTER

Here's another neat lure from Braid Products, the Speedster.  This trolling lure will take a wide range of gamefish, from tuna, dorado and wahoo to yellowtail. They're a favorite for early season yellowfin tuna and albacore.  Anything hungry is likely to jump on 'em!

The Speedster series is a slim profile, fast trolling lure, good for up to 15 knots.   These six 1/2 inch long lures are thru-wired for your security with toothy critters.  They feature large single hooks attached on an internal ball bearing swivel. Their holographic finish draws attention, as does their built in rattle.  They'll fish every bit as good as they'll troll.You can rig them on mono or single strand wire, and they are proven fish catchers!

BRAID MARAUDER

Braid Marauder Lure The Marauder a very popular long range wahoo trolling lure. It's rugged construction, ball bearing swivels and chomp-proof urethane construction, single hooks w/swivels,   ensures you'll get more than your money's worth from this lure. This product is also capable of taking a wide range of gamefish, from tuna to makos. But, beyond a doubt, the thing that's made this a tackle box must-have, has been the long range success this lure's achieved targeting wahoo. Rig the lure on 49 strand cable (some use single strand wire) or simply grab one of the rigging harnesses at the bottom of the page when going after toothy critters like 'hoo or makos. The Marauder is "standard issue" for long rang fishing. Click on the picture to see a color code.

Braid has made a change in their colors, making them much more reflective with a prism holographic-style finish. We have not updated all of our images to reflect this, but we will... You can get a good idea of the new colors in the Speedster colors above.
