Roberts Whistler Chrome Plated Lure

At Roberts®, they noticed the Bounder, weighing 1-3/4 oz., seemed to cast as well as the heavier Rangers on big surf outfits. They liked the slower retrieve speeds available with this lure when targeting stripers. This led to experimenting with weight designs that retain the slip/slide surface action desired, but enabled extreme distance casts. After 8 months of trial and error, they ended up with this 2-1/2 oz. product. They named Whistler because it launches so fast on a typical cast from an 11-foot surf rod that it creates an audible whistle. 

Consider the Whistler as a part of your lure selection for those times when the fish are on that offshore bar or otherwise beyond normal casting range.
