Bye Bye Squidgies

Post by Lazzylure » Thu Sep 10, 2009 7:56 am

I heard last week that the guys at Squidgies are going to have a mass culling of the Squidgy range, most of the lower selling colours and profiles will gone and they will be concentrating on the Pro range and the big sellers in the regular range.

Yes the bugs are good. They can get rid of the rest of the range for all I care, never liked them but the Bugs are a killer lure on the Bass rigged on a rev/ponyhead or with a Betts spin.

Still got to keep the fish and wrigglers as well, don't care about the shads though.

That Sux!
zippedsmilie
Just got my mitts on some 100mm and 130mm fish (#6 and #7)
also some 100mm wrigglers (#4)

must say theres a massive size difference between a 100mm fish and a 100mm wriggler ???

going to have to masterise some of these
and wrigglerise the 100mm fish (to recreate/reinvent Dusky Chasers favourite 140mm wriggler or at least a version of it)

any news on what they are getting rid of?
their website is a bit behind - no sign of the glow in the dark flickbait still

This is pretty annoying zippedsmilie zippedsmilie zippedsmilie

Squidgys have deleted so many of my favourite lures......they continue to produce lures for bream and now snapper but some of the classics are gone....

I loved some of the shad colors that are gone....not to mention its hard to even get a 125mm shad in more than two colors these days. iidiot S

Anseimo

I have always viewed the 100mm fish and the 140mm wriggler as the same size....if you look at the body of the lure forgetting the tail..they are identical.

They have just released 2 more colors in the 140mm wriggler pro range. ......they are ok but still waiting for 1 that gets me yay yay yay .



Lazylure....please tell us what they are getting rid of so I can see what I need to stock up on thumbsupsmilie thumbsupsmilie thumbsupsmilie

yes
they measure the wriggler is a different way to the way they measure the fish
and also a different way to the way anyone else measures curl tails
normally they are measured total length with the tail in curl mode

squidgies seem to stretch the tail out flat then measure the toal length -duh

I've also noticed that some fish and some wrigglers in different sizes have different nose profiles
(tapered v blunt)

I've got some colours that I've never seen on their website - alvin purple, and killer tomato with no stripes (which I call naked killer tomato lol )
