Jex, St. Louis Park, MN:
clear plastic allows you to see exactly which bait is in what container,
they snap shut and open very easily and can be used while on the deck of
the boat. There is ample room for the line to feed through the
container without damaging it. I used them an entire weekend and
didn't hook myself once while digging in my rod locker. They do a
nice job for storage of anything with treble hooks, but maybe the most
effective use I found was for rigs like a drop shot or
hook attached to the container works great for most spinning reels, but
the hook does not attach to some baitcasting reels as well. You
have to adapt it a little to make it work with smaller reels. They
do keep soft plastic baits soft and in good condition, however I'm not
sure how reusable they are once soft plastics have been enclosed for a
the Lure Tamer was as advertised and can save you from a lot of hooks in
fingers, hands, feet, boat seats and anything else you can think of.
They worked wonderfully to prevent tangles when on the deck of the boat
or in it's rodlockers. I will using these on a regular basis for
storage and safety.
Strege, Deerfield, WI:
have used the Lure Tamer for a few weeks now, and am pleased with its
overall function. Crankbaits, Topwaters and Jerkbaits are stowed with
ease in the one-snap case. A “barbed” hook locks the protector down
onto the reel. The barb can be trimmed to suit various reel designs. I
locked the Lure Tamer onto Shimano Curados 200B’s from the top and the
Shimano Sahara’s at the reel base. In both cases, I did not have
difficulty locking the Lure Tamer into place. Line damage is also
avoided in the design with a chamfered, oversized hole for the line. But
the best feature about the Lure Tamer is the fact that rods are saved
from permanent scarring by ultra-sharp hooks. When not using the covers,
I simply threw them in the bottom of my rod locker. On tournament day I
did not use the Lure Tamer on the rods lying on the deck, however, I
have not typically used lure wraps in that situation in the past.
Overall, I was impressed with this product.
Roddick-Small, Glenn Ellyn, IL:
main down side of the lure tamer that I found, was that it took some
time to get to know how to open them. I could see this as a real downer
during a tournament when a person is in a big hurry.
I would give this product a rating of 7.5-8 on a 10 point scale. I am
guessing that I will like them more as I get more accustomed to using
Walker, Verona, WI:
I liked about the Lure Tamer was that when you snapped it on your lure,
your lure stayed put in the clear plastic tube, which makes it very easy
to see what rod has what lure on it. This is a great time saver
when you are going through your rod locker looking for that hot bait on
tournament day. The dual snaps on the case, made sure the lid
stayed shut, but it was easy enough to get open. After snapping
your lure in the case and making sure your line is in the groove, you
insert the plastic hook into the hole on the other end of the case, this
clip can be hooked onto a line guide or a hook keeper.
Lure Tamer is a product that will benefit an angler in two ways.
The first is that it will prevent your baits with treble hooks from
accidentally hooking yourself, child, or pet. The other benefit is
that when you put your rods in the rod locker at the end of the day or
when they are not needed over the course of a long day of fishing, you
can easily go into your rod locker and retrieve a rod with out have a
tangled mess of hooks.
