Innovative head design

When Strike King introduced its Rage Blade last year, it redefined the vibe jig category with a weighted blade rather than a traditional lead or tungsten jig head.

Strike King pro Phil Marks said the benefit is a blade that folds back more easily on the strike to avoid any hook-set impediments.

Strike King made a good thing better by designing a new Rage Blade model with a clear plastic blade to complement the other options of metal blades in painted and gold finishes.

Water clarity is the main determinant of blade selection.

“The clear blade still has all the action and vibration, but it’s better in clear water where you might not want the flash and visibility,” Marks said. “This new model is kind of a cross between a vibrating jig and a scrounger.”

The new Rage Blade design will be officially introduced at ICAST in Orlando, Fla. in July.
