To the eye the new Surf Seeker models look slightly larger for their weight than the original - and still perfect in the surf - ISP models. I'm assuming as a result that they might be made of a slightly less dense metal alloy, which could ensure in theory that they fish even better in shallower water. Typically we're trying to avoid our lures dragging bottom all the way in on shallow storm beaches, so this feature could help with that.
The chartreuse tail may not be to everybody's taste, but after years of supplying lures in the shop, a UV reflecting section is a HUGE fish catcher - and this is what the chartreuse tail is all about. When visibility in swirling water is low, this UV paint will allow fish to pick out your lure more easily on the attack. A great feature.
As with the original Seeker, the Surf model includes the two features that make them perfect for this purpose. The vast majority of their weight is all at the tail (for incredible casting), and their flat profile lifts them easily in shallow water.
The 40g version here is the largest and will suit all but the very, very roughest conditions you might face. If it's blowing a crazy one and the surf is big, get one of these on. Just make sure your rod is man enough!
