The Savage Gear 3D Surface Lures come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

SAVAGE lure guru Mads Grosell has been at it again! Following the success of award-winning 3D Suicide Ducks, we now have 3D Bats and 3D Hollow Ducklings.

The 3D Bat is a ‘surface crawler’, featuring wings and bat-like features. It produces fish-enticing noise and disturbance on the retrieve.

The Fruck, part of the 3D Hollow Ducklings range, boasts a soft, hollow duck body, but with the detailing of a frog!

The lures feature a weedless-style hook, allowing you to ‘skate’ them over weed and lilies to tempt predators.

The 3D Bats are available in Grey, Brown, Black and Albino colours, in 7 cm (14 g), 10 cm (28 g) and 12.5 cm (54 g) sizes.

3D Hollow Ducklings are available in Yellow, White, Black and Fruck finishes, in 7.5 cm (15 g) and 10 cm (40 g) sizes.

Savage Gear have admitted to me that they’ve been taken aback by just how popular these off-the-wall lures have been, and catch reports have been flooding in.

There’s no doubt in my mind that catfish would ‘nail’ them, too. The Bat and Fruck have just won awards at the 2017 EFTTEX show.

Price: 3D Hollow Ducklings -£9.99-£12.99. 3D Bat – £12.99-£25.99.
