I had these beauties given to me last week. I was showing Trevor McFeeters lures to my friend and he raced up the road and brought back my gift. A rollbag with 8 partitions with 7 rigged and 1 not rigged measuring 12" long, all with different heads. The story behind these is that they come from an auction in1997 with gear belonging to Mal Florence. The lot number is still on the bag and he just put it away and hadn't opened the box in donkeys years. Does anyone know any more info about these?

Hi Handbrake,

no answers, just more questions. Scored these with some kona heads a few months ago in an online auction. 
Can anyone help with some information?

Hi Mick,

they were the old kona heads, sevenstrand, from the '80's, along with a couple of cup faced chuggers, and what-not.
The ones pictured have 'striker' on the bottom edge of the head, and the leader would run through the head at an angle, or bend.
I wasn't trying to hijack the thread, but hoping they were the same brand and someone could shed some light on their history.

Cheers,
Tony.
