The Vortex is a truly unique lure. It gives the angler the option to throw big Double 10 Colorado blades without the super long skirts which can at times make casting difficult in the wind. At 8" long, and most of it BIG blades, the Vortex casts like a dream and due to the shorter skirt, the Giant blades violently displace the Marabou and Hackle creating a Vortex of action. Definitely a lure that the Muskies will not have seen before and the results are proving it. The Vortex is built on .62 wire and Epoxy Mirror Finished.
