New Plano Weekend Series Spices up the Speed Bag

Plano, IL – Plano has revolutionized componentized tackle storage, largely through the invention and regular creative expansion of their industry-standard 3500, 3600 and 3700 StowAway Utility Boxes and companion products. Indeed, anglers around the world rely on their StowAways to protect their investments and organize their valuable fishing lures.

Stored in boats, trucks, basements and garages until pressed into duty by the conditions or species du jour, StowAway Utility Boxes, often well organized by species and technique, are loaded into Plano tackle bags or boxes for the journey to the fishing grounds, where their precious cargo of individual baits are tied and tried.

Anglers comfortable with carrying a relatively small arsenal of lures work within this time-proven tackle-organization methodology quite well.  But the tournament, professional, or individual angler who must have hundreds of lures available for deployment at any moment doesn’t always want or need to carry his or her StowAways in a multitude of full-featured tackle bags.

Enter the Plano Speed Bag. It’s a no-nonsense nuts-and-bolts soft tackle case with the sole assignment of carrying and keeping three Plano StowAways, protected and at the ready.

For 2016, the venerable Speed Bag joins Plano’s all-new Weekend Series – a full line of highly functional, stylish and surprisingly affordable tackle storage bags and cases.

The new Weekend Series Speed Bags are available in the familiar 3500, 3600 and 3700 sizes for easy integration to your tackle transport and storage system.  Each size also comes in the attractive red, blue or green Weekend Series color schemes.  Match them to your other Weekend Series bags and cases, or use the three available colors to code your Speed Bags by species or technique.

Constructed of durable 600-Denier Polyester with a padded inner lining, lightweight Weekend Series Speed Bags open and close via a reinforced zipper with an ergonomic loop pull.  Up top, a strong, padded handle ensures comfortable and reliable transport. Empty Speed Bags can be folded down for easy storage in small spaces.
