Simon:
Those dates I gave for the 5 Tigers are from when each model was first catalogued, as per the LureLore.com Heddon series listing.
Some of mine could be from the 1980 reintroduction, maybe the Tiger Cub?, however it was always my belief that the Deep Dive versions were not reintroduced. Should check this out on the Heddon collector web-sites I guess.

Quite frankly, I have no idea how to tell the early 1967-69 examples from the later 1980 ones. Braaa-ad...?! Image

There have been plenty of the Japan Tigers and so-called 'Magnum' Tigers advertised on the-bay recently and they all looked pretty unmistakeable.
...like that red and yellow one of yours?
All four look like they'd be up for a swim though, Simon. Just steer clear of oyster rocks and estuary cod! Image

Brad:
I missed a fine Big Eye listed online in Australia a while back. Was poised to spank it with a serious last-minute bid when a mate came over with a few beers and I forgot all about it.
Went for a song!

Hope someone here nabbed it! Image

Guys,
I've got quite a collection of Tigers, both shallow and deep in various colour sets upwards of 20 lures, had them quite a while.
Not really into the plastic except, as Marrakai has stated, the 1030 was the template for the Moller Minnow.
If any member here wants to trade my selection for Aussie barra timbers pls PM me.
Regards, Tony (Wulagi, NT).

Dave, see Mully if you want more Tigers, I'm sure he has a few. I'll be pruning my collection down to just Aussie timbers in the near future.
So I'll have a few Bellbrooks to trade, these are the runt look alikes made here in the 50's.
