*This is a Custom made 1 of 1 bait made by customer request - Original owner asked for a jetted bait, and this is what Steve produced. It is a Straight Runner style shape but with massive 3-hole jets where he used straws to make the jets. His philosophy with using straws was that typical jets aren't large enough to make much of an impact, so if he was going to make a jetted bait then they were going to have to make an impression. This is coming direct from the original owner who is close with Steve.*
**This lure is in used but great condition, especially for this age of lure - Has a few markings marks and very subtle surface scratches but no chips or cracks - Otherwise in great running condition. Skirts are a bit old and a little sticky but otherwise in mint condition as well. See photos for true condition.**
Steve Elkins out of Hawaii is a legend of his own. His lures are very difficult to get now, but they are all original and highly coveted but some of the top fishermen in the world. While his shapes are original in design and most are very easy to identify, his "custom" signatures at the bottom side of each lure insert is extremely unique and certainly adds to the value and originality of each single lure of his.
This particular lure is an unknown shape but is similar to a Straight Runner shaped bait but with 3-hole jets. Has a very subtle front taper towards the slanted nose (nearly tube shaped). This is a very rare lure style as it is a custom made 1 of 1 bait specifically for a customer. This particular head has five cut mirrored glass slabs placed over a flashy silver rainbow-iridescent wrap. Skirted orange/yellow/white/pink over orange/yellow Tuff Tails.
