In this video Mick Hasset goes through the differences between the Swim and the Max models and how and when he uses them. Check out Mick’s channel to the Vertrex in action in QLD. @Micksgonefishing
Vertrex Swim – THE SOFT VIBE RE-IMAGINED The VERTREX SWIM (pat.pending) is a unique swimming soft vibration bait. It is the first lure of it’s kind that swims when sinking and also vibrates when lifted creating an irresistible combination for any species. Nomad Lure Designer Damon Olsen has designed a finely tuned body shape and internal weight combination that glides and swims when sinking imitating a lifelike swimming baitfish. Lift the rod and it vibrates and let it freefall and it swims, there is simply nothing like the Vertrex Swim. It is designed to be fished vertically, and can be cast and retrieved or dropped straight down, but is best fished with a fast lifting rod action to create vibration, followed by giving it slack line to swim down. The Vertrex features a full wire internal construction for extra strength, and is fitted with the ultimate BKK trebles so you can fish it straight out of the box.
Maximum vibration and maximum depth is what the VERTREX MAX is all about. A unique design from Nomad Lure Designer Damon Olsen, the deep body profile combined with finely tuned internal weights delivers a soft vibration bait that sinks level and does not spin when sinking. This allows you to get down to the fish faster, and also allows a more lifelike presentation when you get there. The deeper body design combined with the body shape creates huge vibration at fast or slow speeds. The amount of vibration you can achieve at slow speeds just gently hopping this lure on or near the bottom is what sets the Vertrex MAX apart from all other soft vibration baits. Ideal for casting or working vertically, the Vertrex MAX can be fished with a constant retrieve or a variety of stop/start retrieves. The Vertrex features a full wire internal construction for extra strength, and is fitted with the ultimate BKK trebles so you can fish it straight out of the box.
