New Products For November 2011

Organize Lures With Magnetic Station

Organized and easily accessible lures can make the difference between catching fish or spending valuable time on the water searching for the right bait. The Gear Grabbar from Magnetic Marine Products offers anglers the ultimate lure organization station to keep baits safely and neatly in place.

The magnetic fishing tool holder suspends lures with the use of magnets. Users don’t need to touch the lure’s hook, just the body. By simply holding it near the magnet, the bait gets pulled in. If something gets snagged on a lure, such as a sleeve or pant leg, it’s easily released.

The Gear Grabbar from Magnetic Marine Products retails for $21.95 online and is also available at Bass Pro Shops nationwide.

Simple Tool Keeps Steering Healthy

 Steering systems must be properly maintained to perform optimally and safely. Lubrication goes a long way in the fight against corrosion, friction and wear. Cable Buddy is a kit designed to lubricate inside the steering cable jacket for inboard, outboard and I/O engines.

It virtually eliminates corrosion and all wear in the inner cable, where most problems occur.

This system includes a stainless steel nut with plug and sealing washer, oiling tube assembly and Max-Lube, the ideal steering cable lubricant. Cable Buddy’s lube nut fits motors with 7/8” by 14” pitch threads.

Suggested retail price for Cable Buddy starts at $34.99, while Max-Lube is $9.99 and Lube II costs $25.99.
