"Back in the day", there were two basic classes of manufactured worms;
the mass injected worm, popularized by Nick Creme and the original
Creme worm, and the hand poured worm produced by various garage
industries in the West. While the injected worms caught their share of
bass, tournament after tournament was being won by those anglers
throwing the hand poured worm.
The hand poured worm is a thing of beauty, with (depending on its color
pattern) its blended fades, contrasting bellies, splotches, and flakes.
The problem with the hand pours, however, was their availability. As
mentioned before, most of these worms were a product of a garage
industry. For many of these entrepreneurs, it was a side job for their real
9 to 5 endeavors. Worms were produced only on weekends or whenever
there was some free time to do so. This was not a good situation for those
depending on a certain worm for a win in a tournament!
Then, in 1989, in the pretty little town of Newbury Park in California,
Harvey and Greg Stump, under the name of "GJ+H Company", developed
a robotic machine that was able to make hand poured styled worms with
remarkable precision and consistency of color. With computer controlled
accuracy, soft plastic is layered into CNC cut aluminum molds. The result
is a worm color pattern that looks the same today, tomorrow, and even
five years down the road.
Today, because of their breakthrough technology in soft plastics production,
ROBOWORM, Inc. is the world's largest producer of hand poured styled
baits. These high floating lures come in a number of different shapes and
lengths, and are available in a dazzling variety of color patterns. Adding to
their effectiveness is their exclusive "salt release system". Salt isn't merely
added on after production, it is included during the pouring process. This
provides a salty taste that fish hang on to long after the salt has washed away
with those "other brands".
Perfect for drop shotting, split shotting, Carolina rigging, sliding, shaky head,
or the good ol' Texas rig, these worms have won tournaments all across the
country. These worms are a "must have" in any serious basser's arsenal!
