BORRA BORRA SLANT

Poseidon BORRA BORRA  slant is one of our premier lures– the internals of this lure are precision cut and perfectly curated and balanced – we have used the finest hard resin and the finest internals. Heat pressed 3D lettering no sticker for lettering. Very difficult to do and unique to us for this model in all its sizes and also the new Barrel bullet..

This is one of our oldest moulds – only recently have we remade the mould after a 25 year period. The model itself has taken countless giant blue Marlin and black Marlin.

This head can run with the hook lock making the setting of the hook point sit where the angler  would prefer it that is most comfortable for the individual.

There seems to be a lot of controversy on which is the best way to run a hook point up or down. Hook locks themselves can retard a lot of lures– Not every lure on the market runs well with a hook lock– the hydrodynamics  need to be correct keeping the lure vibrant cycling well and not slugging  in the water

The Borra Borra slant head is slightly oversized for the profile keeping the water pressures true and on on point this allows an aggressive wobble and this profile is a real easy lure for blue Marlin to eat – water after all is 800 times denser than air so the pressures keep the lure aggressive and the semi stiff rig does not retard the action in any way shape or form 

We have only recently made the small model of the Borra Borra slant and as such we believe it’s going to be the missing key for a slower lure that is sensational for southern bluefin tuna. People that like to run hardbody lures in conjunction with skirted lures for this particular species were extremely excited about this model. Trevor Oldenampston, Mr Borra Borra himself has given it the tick of approval.

 HOOK POINT UP OR DOWN WITH HOOK LOCKS ?

After speaking to countless captains around the world we are of the mindset that it is a 50-50 ratio.  Both ways work.   

It really comes down to what your comfortable with.  Most people will feel it in their bones and change it up on day if the odd fish is missed.  .

This model in all sizes has made the leap to larger heavier leader poundage without it affecting the hydrodynamics and the cycle time of this great profile the smaller 10.5 can easily take 300Lb if not heavier without it losing its aggressive action even though some southern tuna fishermen up to go really light in the fluorocarbon realm as these fish are fussy and elusive at times.150Lb is a go to for many gurus that trust their rigging. Zero room for error with 37kg tackle and 150lb leader. Crimps need to be perfect but that’s how many opt to hunt trophy SBT

12.5 inch 300 to 400 lb leader is fine.   

14.5 inch 300 to 500 lb leader is fine.  You can step down in leader poundages If desired.  But for big Marlin the heavier end of spectrum is the go.  It’s the rasping and chaffing is what your combatting with worn out long battles .
