The VMC Mystic 7346BD Heavy Duty Bladed Swimbait comes 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.

The VMC Mystic 7346BD Heavy Duty Bladed Swimbait  is just one of the innovative hook-and-jig patterns that I would recommend in the VMC Mystic Predator range.

They are perfect for snag-free, Texas rigging, when you want to work your lures through what’s left of this summer’s flora. Simply screw the end of a swimbait onto the spring, located on the eye of the hook, before positioning the hook into the body.

The weight on the hook shank acts like a keel on a boat, ensuring that your swimbait runs straight and true, and the removable blades ‘flash’ in the water, attracting the eyes of predators.

There are two different blades per pack, allowing you to vary the colour, vibration and swimming action.

Coming with a wide gape, needle-sharp hook, there are six Heavy Duty Bladed Swimbaits in the range: 3, 5 and 7 g sizes with size 4/0 hooks, and 5, 7 and 10 g models with size 6/0 hooks.

Price: £4.99 per pack.
