I carn't remember if these lures came from Finland or Sweden all it says on the bib is system perfekta there spelling not mine. the only thing i rember about them was if you snag them and bust off the lure floats back to the surface and all you need is another set of trebles

Don't have the lure in front of me but pretty sure they are Norwegian - made by the same Silvkroken mob who made the Jensen Insect spinners.

I first bought some because Bushie did a review of them in one of the mags. On my very first cast with one I hooked a 4 1/2 pound rainbow below Wyangala Dam. They do work well - have a tight action but good and bad need a bit more speed than a Rapala to work. They are very undervalued by collectors, especially in the packet.

When I told Bushie how well they worked he didn't even remember doing the review. But it did the job for me on a number of occasions - they were nice trolling companions with Tassie Devil lures that need a bit of pace.

One other thing. If you use them - make sure you put a split ring on the hook (singles work just as well). If the hook eye goes up the back hole, there is almost no action.

How about using a bead just above the split ring this should protect the lure and the knot at the same time.catch ya

Interesting design.......though the name sounds Irish ???

We have a patended trolling spoon over here employing the same principle , also one German tackle company came out with a similar design two or three years ago ,.... but on that one two trebles are rigged onto a plastic dowel and the angler can snap off the entire lurebody to switch lures .

The advantage of that system is(stated by the manufacturer) , that the angler only needs one hook harness , but can carry several lurebodies with different action and colors in his pocket without any danger(of piercing his best parts)!

Can't tell , whether it works well , haven't bough some yet ,........have so many lures in my boxes already , don't really need another single parts of them crazysmilie lol !
