Counting down to launching the worlds 1st ever Hybrid-Head skirted trolling lure

Salta is the 1st and only company in the world today, capable of designing and manufacturing Hybrid-Heads, the world’s 1st constantly diving and swimming skirted trolling lures.

With my legacy HooBit® 10” plug I realised that I had designed a very powerful swimmer.

It’s the only hard body diving trolling plug design suitable for transforming into a skirted trolling lure. It has the right streamlined low profile form, shape and size, which gives it the unique ability to dive and swim with medium to large sized rubber skirts, at all practical trolling speeds.

I made 3 slightly different shaped prototypes, all with the same optimal length & the power to move skirts. I found that small but distinct changes to the form resulted in different swimming and diving properties and max trolling speeds.

The HooBit® STL 14 in the photo, is the most erratically swimming of the 3, with a max sustained unassisted trolling speed of 14 knots

The STL 20 has a tighter swimming motion, the same swimming threshold as the STL 14, but with a max sustained unassisted trolling speed of 20 knots

The 3rd Hybrid-Head, our crown jewel that we will launch this summer, swims with lower drag at all speeds up to 19 knots, and is very easy to skirt

Transforming the skirted trolling lure industry

We are about to transform the skirted trolling lure industry.

For the first time ever a continuously diving and swimming skirted trolling lure will run the oceans.

Wire this lure we are combining high-tech innovation with craftsmanship.

Working close together will Nelson Custom Trolling Lures, and master lure artist Capt. Douglas Nelson, every lure will be unique as we do all the inlays ourselves by hand. Inlays such as mother of pearl (MOP) and Thin Lam.

Every lure will be made with pride in the USA at our own factory in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.

All materials have been carefully selected.

Lure shells are made of uniquely ultra thick Polycarbonate, the toughest plastic material invented by mankind, and produced by Marlborough Plastics Inc., CT, USA.

The other materials we keep secret until launch 🚀
