Brands:Santos Tournament Grade Tackle
The Ascension features an angled face and a long tapered body. These monster lures thrash, slash, and slice the wake as they imitate a small fleeing bonito or mackerel. Although originally introduced as a teaser, the Ascension can be very effective when tournament trolled for blue or black marlin. The head shake and plunge of the Ascension is unmistakable , an irresistible to those at the top of the pelagic food chain. The Raptor series' speed and conditions range is enhanced by the (TM) LCM weighted insert. Santos offshore big game trolling lures are hand cast from premium aerospace grade urethane which comes out of the mold identical to the precision engineered prototype, and as smooth as glass. Unlike most trolling lures which are made of polyester resins, urethane lures are optically clear, ultra hard, chip and crack resistant, UV stable, and can be produced with perfect design proportions. Each lure is also heat and pressure cured for the ultimate in durability. We use only the finest AAA grade shell veneers, soft PVC anti-chafe leader tubes, and custom hand painted Santos Holographic eyes for our lures. Santos lure tailstocks are precision CAD engineered to perfectly fit our double hand tied skirts, and to make an ideal hydrodynamic transition from the head to skirt. Santos trolling lures feature our proprietary (TM) LCM (Low Center of Mass) insert technology that insures that the lure stays upright, and is able to achieve significantly higher trolling speeds. With an upright lure, hook set position and orientation within the skirts are further maintained by our Santos RigLock(TM) system which is a standard feature of all of our big game lures. Santos bluewater trolling lures features supple, vibrant, and durable skirts made in the USA by Ocean Lure Concepts.
Great lure, very well built. Same Santos quality as I have come to expect. This lure exceeded my expectations, but its HUGE! We are going to use it as a teaser behind a dredge, as it has a lot of movement in the water and gives a nice large silhouette.
I haven't caught anything on this lure but it sure seems to bring marlin to the boat. Several times they've come in from a side to this big lure , then hooked up on another smaller lure (they're not big fish , 200# blue)
