Strike Pro America has reinvented itself with a flood of new lure styles, and the Flex Phantom is their new-fangled swimbait offering. Does the company have what takes to break into the red hot swimbait market? The Flex Phantom looks like a cross between a swimbait and a crankbait, and makes use of an exclusive multi-jointed tail section to generate a slinking side to side tail action quite unlike any other.

Strike Pro was among the first baits we reviewed when we first started TackleTour seven years ago. At the time Strike Pro in the US was an extension of the company's main Taiwan operation which was opened in 1973. While a lot of the R&D and manufacturing still takes place in the company's Taiwan facility Strike Pro America has undergone a complete makeover in terms of management and product offering. Strike Pro America is a lure manufacturer and importer now located in Galveston, Texas. In recent years their focus has been saltwater products, with their expansion they plan to develop the freshwater market domestically. The Flex Phantom is one of the first products to come from the new company.

There is no market quite like the Swimbaits. The anglers that employ these baits fall into two categories, the "experimenting" angler that throws a swimbait once in while as a complement to their tried and true tackle, hoping that next toss will result in a big fish. Then there are the truly dedicated, addicted, hard core big bass hunters that throw almost nothing but big baits in their pursuit of trophy sized fish. Luckily for both types of anglers there are a lot of swimbaits out there, and they come in all shapes, sizes, and price points. We have seen many manufacturers try and put out a swimbait only to fall short. There is no doubt that manufacturers like Huddleston, 3:16, Mattlures, Black Dog, and Spro just to name a few have their own unique formula for a quality swimbait but there are many others that leave us scratching our heads and wondering how that lure ever made it past the drawing board, like the Lucky Craft Real California Supreme for example. We hoped that Strike Pro wouldn't make the same mistakes, especially when it came to durability.
