Hi Guys,
Ausprey Razors, made by Ausprey Tackle Pentax St Salisbury Brisbane, back in the 80's. Remember them well droolsmilie
Got a few of Leigh's Blade runners rolling around here too

Fizza's is a Reefrunner Cicada.

Heres some Mint Cicada's
Another old time blade was the Cotton Cordell Gay Blade, Auspreys looked like them.

The Late Peter Davis or Prickly Pete as he was known also did a local version of the Cicada. I have one around here I'll have to dig it out.

Brad,
Mine isn't a Reefrunner Cicada.

It's a Silver Lucky made in the US in the 70's & the 1st of this style of lure that i'm aware of.

I've got roughly 10 of these & have only seen them in either Gold or Silver.

I put them in the Yank section a while back.

Looks like he was infering that AA tagged the lure as an Ausprey Razor, wish I had one..

Fizza I reckon the "Silver Lucky" looks like a Heddon Sonar clone without the paintjob that Heddon and others, like "Zounder" with their Wasp copy, put on the vibes. Heddon released the Sonar in 1958. For a modern example chase up some of Paul Kneller's Shake'n'Bake blades in the El Diablo range (both tin and poly carbonate bodies), put one next to your Luckys and tell me what you reckon? Or even one of the Smith Ltd. Metal Scanner range.

Reefrunner Cicadas came out in the early 90s I believe, they had a concaved blade section (the wing) which created a nice flutter on the drop but induced a bit of line twist, requiring a swivel.

Cordell's Gay Blades (cracker name) were marketed as a vibrating hard bait or a jigging spoon, Pflueger had an almost identical lure (aka the Gay Blade) in the 60s with the flat head section painted bright red. These two lures are surely the template for many modern "new" blades.
