Post by laz » Thu Apr 30, 2009 9:18 pm

Does any body know the age of this lure .The missus brought me this beauty its a Hedd Hunter deep diver with magic hole lol apparently this magic hydronic hole is located in the bib and creates sound waves allows the lure to run deeper and truer according to the spiel on the instructios /catalog

Laz,
The box will give a rough time frame for it which I can't remember now. Brad I'm sure will have some knowledge of them.

Aquasonic lures had a similar thing with holes going through there lure bodies pumping volumes of water & bubbles through them

I don't think it is that old - Brad is the expert on Heddon packaging (and I can look it up later tonight), but the hole, the colour and the lure model make it a pretty special example. Hedd Hunters are sought after by American collectors.

Interestingly I have some Shakespeake lures I think were called Ugly lures that look identical. Don't have the boxes to confirm - probably late 1970's vintage.

Hedd Hunter was added to Heddon's range in 1977.
The "Victor Recreation" box is nice to see as the pair, is valued at US$50+.

Laz,
I failed to add the age of the lure, Released in 1977 and the packaging chnged to bubble on card, when Ebsco purcased Heddon in 1983 or so. SO yours is somewhere in that age range mate.
