Fred Ward'™s Perfect Wacky O-Rings: an Update

DSCN1059


On Dec. 14, 2015, we published a gear guide about Fred Ward's Perfect Wacky O-Rings, and we noted that anglers would be able to purchase them on Dec. 15.

Unfortunately, Fast Freddie's Stuff encountered some production woes that waylaid the plan to have it available on Dec. 15. But as of Feb. 6, two major tackle distributors are in the process of meting them out to tackle retailers all across the nation, including at least one major online retailer.


In the eyes of the Midwest finesse anglers who wield a wacky rigged Z-Man Fishing Products' Hula StickZ or Finesse T.R.D. or Finesse WormZ, Fred Ward's Perfect Wacky O-Ring will substantially increase the durability of those ElaZtech baits. And they will undoubtedly become a critical tool in these anglers' repertoire. Of course, it will be an asset to other kinds of finesse anglers, and power anglers to boot.
