(From press releases) Highlighting SPRO’s new products unveiled for ICAST 2020 are the new Rattling Little John (available 1/1/2021) and Essential Series (9/1/2020) lures.

Here's a quick look:

SPRO Introduces Rattle Little John 50, Rattle Little John MD50

The Rattle Little John 50 and MD50 crankbait inherit the best tournament-proven features of the Little John 50, including a unique lip made from a computer-chip board. An internal steel ball creates a loud hard-rattling sound bass find irresistible. You can cover more water thanks to the lure's silent weight transfer system. The design translates into unbelievably long casts for this small shallow-running crankbait.
