Halco MAX 190 Wins AFTA Award

Halco Tackle’s award winning Max 130 has a new bigger brother, the Max 190.

Continuing the family tradition, the Max 190 has just been voted the Best New Hard Body Lure at the Australian Tackle Show 2016, held on the Gold Coast in sunny Queensland, Australia. It’s not hard to see why after checking out its features and benefits. Tough as nails from the ground up, the lure features double wall thickness for a totally rigid profile, capable of coping with the massive forces that can be exerted on any heavy game and sport fishing lure, especially from bruisers like oversize wahoo, massive tuna, giant trevally and similar oceanic thugs.

The internal componentry matches up to the build with fully formed and welded hook hangers and towing point, making the Max 190 the toughest kid on the block. On the outside, 95kg Halco fish rings provide the ultimate linkage to two Mustad 7/0 inline single hooks for incredible holding power.

In terms of performance, just like its baby brother, the Max 190 is capable of being cast and retrieved on heavy spin or casting outfits. The lure swims on the drop and is often hit as it powers down to the depths. If not hit on the way down, the Max 190 is likely to meet an unfortunate demise when ripped back to the boat or rocks at speed. But the true versatility of the Max 190 becomes apparent when it is trolled.

This lure has been thoroughly tested and trolled at speeds up to 24Kt in less than ideal conditions, making it perfect to put out during the long haul to your traditional hunting grounds or moving between spots.

All up, this is one tough, versatile fish catching machine.
