Made by old-school Hawaiian lure maker Kahalau with over 30 years of lure making experience in Hawaii.
His off-cantered reverse scoop is also traditionally known as Kona Scoop AKA THE SPRINKLER. An exceedingly difficult head to make – the KONA SCOOP, as the resin needs to be cut back and meticulously polished inside the reverse scoop.
His product is highly collectable.
