EASY BAND SKIRT
(US PATENT #7,647,722)
Another Innovative Easy On/Easy Off Skirt for Those That Still Like the Fullness of the Cut/Banded Skirt
Our Easy Hub Skirt (US PATENT #7,805,880) was the first truly new design in the fishing lure skirt market in over 25 years. In addition to being easily replaceable on virtually any spinner bait and jig head design, it provides a level of style and coloration flexibility unparalleled in the industry. It has gleaned significant attention and taken the skirt market by storm since the introduction at the 2005 ICAST Show. However, even though all agree it has a perfect umbrella, some fishermen were somewhat critical of the Easy Hub skirt in that it does not have the “fullness” of the old rubber banded skirt. So we put our engineering minds to work and came up with a couple of solutions. First, we added more fullness to our one and two piece Easy Hub Trailer Skirt by adding more strand to the trailer (21 vs. 14) and increasing the strand thickness a bit. Our Easy Hub and Easy Hub Trailer Skirts are further discussed in a separate section of this website.
The we created a style of banded skirt with some of the major attributes of the Easy Hub skirt, thus evolved the new patented Easy Band Skirt. This new easy on, easy off fused band skirt is produced similar to a traditional banded skirt with a 40 to 80 strand umbrella and 40 to 80 shorter strand hook cover, giving the same fullness of the traditional banded skirt. But instead of a rubber band used to hold individual strands in place and fix the skirt to the lure hub, our Easy Band skirt incorporates a silicone band that is molded in place and a pronounced hook hole in the center of the skirt. The result is a skirt that can be easily removed and replaced without disturbing the strands and a band that will not dry rot in your tackle box. No more bands popping and strands flying. No more strands pulling out when you try to remove and replace your skirt. Just easy on, easy off, just like our Easy Hub skirt. Additionally, the accent strands stay in one place and the skirt can be easily rotated on the lure to position accents where you want them. With thousands of colors and print patterns of silicone sheets produced with our silicone sheet molding process and print shop, the styles and variety of our finished easy on, easy off fused band lure skirt is endless. The 30 shore silicone molded in band provides a tight, secure fit to any jig head, yet allows for easy replacement. The hub is clear or can be produced in over 10 different standard colors for the ultimate in color coordination. It is also available with a 21 strand trailer. Like our easy hub skirt, the easy band skirt will take the skirt market by storm.
We also offer our Easy Band Skirt in a big game version. The Big Game Easy Band Skirt is produced with a 50 strand umbrella and 50 shorter strand hook cover and is a whopping 8” to 9.5” in length with thick, 24 mil X 90 mil silicone strands. The 30 shore silicone molded in band provides a tight, secure fit to any big game jig head, yet allows for easy replacement. The hub is clear or can be produced in over 10 different standard colors for the ultimate in color coordination. It is also available with a 21 strand trailer.
The patented Easy Band Skirt is also available with our custom shaped trailer strands.
