The Marvellous Mavericks

Post by Marrakai » Wed Sep 23, 2009 8:27 pm

Here's a pic of the three Maverick lures I have left-over from the 1970s.
They were marvellous lures for jigging for kings and high-speed spinning off the rocks, and came out in direct competition with Joe Gospel's Irons mentioned in the other thread.

Top to bottom: Taipan; Sidewinder; Rattler.

Anyone know who actually made these? ...or anything more about them?


BTW apologies for the Flectrolite tape stuck all over the Sidewinder, seemed like a good idea at the time but I should probably pull it off now that these things are collectable! Image

Marrakai, Maverick lures were owned by Tom Nairn, he did reside in Bondi, I haven't seen him for a long time, I think recently he was selling the Topgun range of pelagic lures. Or some similar name. Nev

55g Taipan, 80g Diamondhead, 60g rattler, 70g Sidewinder
under those are three styles of slug (names unknown), the blue Pillie one weighs about 90g, the Green/Orange hollow belly one about 80g and the green/yellow about 50g.

Cheers Brad

Brad:
Marvellous spread!
Between us, do we have the full range? I have been unable to find an old advert or magazine article giving a general overview of the Mavericks.
...a bit surprising considering their position of prominence in the spinning scene during the 1970s.

Gunna have to find me a couple of those big slugs! Image
