Product News| Views: 1272

COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. – When Strike King’s potent pro team asked the company to create the best vibrating jig on the market, they had some very specific needs and were extremely discriminating about quality: from the snap, to the paint, to the hook, every single component had to be premium and serve a distinct purpose. After many revisions—and many prototypes—Strike King was finally given the green light by a pro staff highlighted by bass fishing icons like Kevin VanDam, Greg Hackney, Denny Brauer, Shaw Grigsby, and Mark Rose. Now, they would like to introduce you to a new, sure-fire favorite for bass anglers across the country, the all-new Thunder Cricket from Strike King.

“The Thunder Cricket has the perfect action and vibration to get bass to bite,” says Mark Zona, host of Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show. “It also has all premium components to make sure that every bite makes it into your boat. There were no corners cut when we built this bad boy. The blade shape, skirt count, hook size and style, and the colors were all meticulously tested and unanimously agreed upon as the best possible option to make this bait superior. This is not your run of the mill bait. It is professional grade. But it will still be priced where you can feel good about buying it.”
