Berkley Introduces Fusion19 Slow Turn hook

Tuesday, July 05, 2016

COLUMBIA, S.C.  - Berkley introduces a way to increase action to any presentation with the Fusion19 Slow Turn hook, part of the ICAST New Product Showcase later this month.

This uniquely bent fine wire hook produces a spinning action that leads to more strikes. With an exaggerated bend, the Slow Turn improves the action of lures even at the slowest trolling or retrieval speeds. 
The Slow Turn features an innovative bait keeper with high holding power for both artificial and live bait. This is key when trolling at higher speeds and results in less baits slipping off. 
The Fusion19 Slow Turn paired with a Gulp! nightcrawler is killer on walleye in any season. The distinctive hook is forged for increased strength and is available in four sizes. With a sleek, smoke satin finish and Slickset coating, the Fusion19 Slow Turn has an MSRP of $5.99 in a unique package.
