Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard is the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week. Here's his lowdown on the DAM Effzett Slide’N Roll Perch Lure …

REMARKABLY lifelike this hard lure complete with fins made from soft PVC has another clever trick up its sleeve – a detachable swim lip.

A slow sinker, click the lip into place and the Slide ’N Roll takes on a heavy rolling, wobbling action.

Remove the lip and it turns into more of a ‘slider’ that can be fished shallow over weed and worked nice and slow.

Two lures in one, there’s five different paint finishes for different conditions and they’re all ‘perchy’. They’re available in two sizes 140 cm (40 g) and a bigger mouthful 180 cm (80 g). With the lip, the lures will dive down to around 2.5 and 3.5 m respectively.

I would feel confident retrieving one.

Price: £13.99.
