Another Innovative Skirt Solution for Those That Still Like the Fullness of the Cut/Banded Skirt
The EZ Skirt™ (patent pending) is 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 EZ Skirt™ in that it does not have the "fullness" of the old cut/banded skirt. So here at GLC, 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 EZ Trailer™ by adding more strand to the trailer (21 vs. 14) and increasing the strand thickness a bit. The new EZ Trailer™ is discussed in a separate section of this website.
Our second solution was to create a cut/banded skirt with some of the major attributes of the EZ Skirt™. Thus evolved the new EZ Band Skirt™ (patent pending). The EZ Band Skirt™ is produced similar to a traditional cut/banded skirt with a 44 strand umbrella and 44 shorter strand hook cover, giving the same fullness of the traditional cut/banded skirt. But instead of a rubber band used to hold individual strands in place and fix the skirt to the lure hub, the EZ 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 the EZ 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 over 4,000 colors of silicone sheets produced with our silicone sheet molding process and print shop, the styles and variety of finished EZ Band 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 can also be produced in over 10 different standard colors for the ultimate in color coordination. It is also available with a 21 strand trailer. Like the EZ Skirt™, the EZ Band Skirt™ will take the skirt market by storm.
And now we offer the new EZ Band Muskie Skirt™. The EZ Band Muskie Skirt™ is also produced similar to a traditional cut/banded skirt with a 50 strand umbrella and 50 shorter strand hook cover, giving the same fullness of the traditional cut/banded skirt. The skirt is a whopping 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 jig head, yet allows for easy replacement. The hub can also be produced in over 10 different standard colors for the ultimate in color coordination. The EZ Band Muskie Skirt™ is also available with a 21 strand trailer.
