Strike Pro | Guppie Downsize | 9cm 35.7g
Since 2002, the TrueGlide Guppie has been the gold standard for handmade wood glide baits.
Accounting for numerous tournament wins and huge fish as well as filling up collector’s cabinets.
One of the first things people notice about the Guppie is the artwork. Up until now, these colors have only been available on the hand painted wood lures produced by Joe Peterson. StrikePro and CWC in partnership with Peterson are bringing these unique colors to the market for the first time. The paint schemes incorporate using paint or glitter on the INSIDE shell of the bait, in addition to painting on the outside. This mimics the technique Peterson uses on his wood baits, layering paint between topcoats for a 3-D effect. It also prolongs the color of the bait fish after fish. Strike Pro has even replicated the signature 3-D eyes that TrueGlide lures are famous for.
In addition to the obvious good looks, the Guppie incorporates some unique design features that make it a top fish producer. The Guppie’s compact shape ensures that hook coverage is always maximized. While the convex body shaping from the top to the belly exposes the hook points for better hook sets. The body profiling also adds extra flash and belly roll. The tail types adds an extra dimension.
The Guppie features an innovative spring screw at the tail of the bait. Change the dynamics of the bait simply by screwing on or off one of the optional tail types.
