Skirts Plus Standard Banded Replacement Skirts for Fishing Lures ~ 5 Count
Give all your jigs, spinnerbaits and buzzbaits a fresh, exciting new look with these premium lure skirts!
Manufactured by Skirts Plus Corporation using their premium BIO-FLEX silicone material. This is some of the best skirt material in the world. It is super soft for pulsating, breathing action. The way the strands are banded and tied together by Skirts Plus is with their standard latex rubber collar.
These are your tried and true type of silicone skirts with rubber band collars to hold the skirts together.
If you look at the photos, you will be able to see whether or not the collar comes with molded-in holes to accept rattle pods or not. Rattles not included.
Approximately 5-1/4" total length. All standard skirts have 44 to 50 backward- and forward-facing silicone rubber strands, making 88 to 100 individual loose ends. That's a lot of skirt.
The retainer band is put off-center to create one short side and one long side. Usually, the long side is put on facing forward, but you have a choice how you want to put it on, and it is fun to experiment.
People ask me why I offer some skirt colors as standard band skirts instead of offering them as the advanced Pro-Tie, Hole-In-One or other newer skirt styles?
There are two very good reasons to use standard banded skirts:
- First, for some of the simple, single color or very basic two-color skirts, you simply don't need anything more than a standard band, and it is the most economical band style.
- Second reason is, on some of the multi-color skirts, when you have a standard band, some of the strands will wriggle around slightly, may shift and combine positions under the band, and when you have two or three closely-matching colors, that blending can be a good thing for the strands and colors to move around and commingle. It causes a well-blended color pattern which may often be a desirable effect to harmonize the colors instead of staying separate. On Pro-Tie, Hole-In-One or other newer skirt styles, the strands are locked and fixed in place so the colors can't move, merge and blend like they can on a standard banded skirt. So I still prefer to offer the standard band for those particular color combos that work better when they're able to merge and present the colors blended together.
The price is for a count of 5 lure skirts all the same size and color as shown below.
Black Red Flash. A favorite with bass anglers across Europe or anywhere there's a delta, brackish water or estuarine bass fishery in the USA. To see this in person, the metallic red foil is far more reflective and flashier than the picture shows it.
Black red skirts like this tend to be favored by anglers who fish delta, bayou, swampy or brackish estuaries/rivers along the Atlantic, Gulf or California coastline. European bass anglers also heavily use black red skirts. Otherwise, the average angler hardly uses black red skirts today - but it wasn't always so. As little as fifteen years ago, it was even money whether an angler would claim a black blue or a black red jig worked best. There were many anglers who favored one versus the other. Then somehow the black red jig all but disappeared. Who knows why? Black blue has become the most popular jig color in the USA today - but fish still love black red - on spinnerbaits, buzzbaits and jig. Rediscover why many old timers favored the black red skirt over black blue!
