X Zone Lures (formally Strike Zone) was founded by Canadian tournament angler Mark Kulik. Mark was practicing for some upcoming tournaments that best suited a drop shot technique and wanted a bait that might emulate most of the forage in the lakes where the events were being held. The lakes had an abundance of crayfish and goby so a profile that looked and acted like both with an action that could vary depending on conditions was required. This eventually led to the first "Slammer" designs. Mark’s success in the tournaments and expertise using the "dropshot" technique have made him a household name in the Canadian fishing industry and the "Slammer" has become one of the most dominant baits throughout Southern Ontario. It has been so successful that its popularity is quickly catching on all across North America!
The by-products and designs stemming from the original "Slammer" have made Mark one of the premier bait designers today. His experience and insight into designing edible profiles, actions, and colors has vaulted X Zone Lures into the forefront of the tackle industry and the "Slammer" joins an elite group of successful game changing profiles along with the curly tailed grub, the tube jig, and the senko.
From pros to leisure fishermen throughout North America, the fishing industry loves X Zone Lures!
And, since the Slammer's success began, they have expanded their product line to include other great designs and products.
With X Zone Lures, fishermen all over North America can fill out their tackle boxes with lures that look and behave just like the forage in their lakes. That means better results, and bigger fish, faster.
