The Hunchback 90 has an epic surface crawling action designed for one thing only - to target big surface feeding Murray Cod. The lure design inspired the Hunchback name, as the tail of the lure hunches around and down to allow the rear point of the lure to sit below the surface giving excellent hook up rates, an area that a lot of surface lures fall short. In conjunction with the hook-up specific design of the lure we fit the Hunchback out with super sharp BKK 3X trebles for big strength as well as further promoting excellent hook up rates.

Also featuring a clip off bib which makes for convenient storage, any Murray Cod surface crawler with a bit of size is next to impossible to store in a standard tackle box making the clip off bib super handy.

The After Dark colour has a reduced LED specifically for night time, you can really notice the LED working for you if you get a bite that doesn't hook up leave the lure stationary for up to 60 seconds and Murray Cod will quite often come back and eat it whilst the lure sits there flashing.

Next time you're going surface fishing try out the Balista Hunchback, every feature is designed to promote more Murray Cod striking the lure, and more fish hooking up.
