Made in USA Atom Striper Swiper

5 posts in this topic

Just picked up this guy at a West Marine of all places. I plan on fishing it, no real interest in “collecting” it but sure am curious how old this thing is. Feel like it’s been sitting on the shelf a loooooong time.FAEB2F81-FE2E-4C9F-9A64-75317D7F8125.jpeg.1af0bb82ffe5a1fe4b024b722a2820d5.jpeg28BD2A84-F515-48F7-B94C-EF782F159BC7.jpeg.aaffefa53126a9df510b41882d2fa329.jpeg

My first ever striper on topwater was on the Atom Striper Swiper.

 

Do yourself a favor and go to a fishing flea market or used tackle fishing show and pick up the old designs. An old timer told me the earlier versions were made with a different type of high density ethylene base compound that made them cast better and farther. The manufacturing process changed over time and they had to switch because of the harmful effects when exposed to it.
