The Westin Platypus Swimming Hard Lure is a 8 5/8 inch, 5 5/16 Ounce lure that dives to a depth of 6 to 20 feet. It is a unique lure with an incredible action and swimming pattern that was developed as part of Westin's Platypus Project. The Platypus Project was a tough assignment for the Scandinavian lure maker Allan Christiansen. Westin wanted to keep it all secret and didn't even have a name for the lure - only a list of impossible demands, including a lot of X-factor and the best rolling movement ever seen on a lure! When they saw the look of the final prototype the name was obvious due to the resemblance of the beak on a real platypus.

Since its creation by lure maker Allan Christiansen, Platypus became Scandinavia's leading big pike lure in no time. And now we've answered the clamour from pike specialists for a completely silent big boy with perfect low floating buoyancy. Fish it extremely slow and it still got the famous Westin Roll. At a pause in the retrieve, it hangs and slowly rises in the water - very appealing to large, tricky predators.

Christiansen says: "It took me 32 different prototypes and countless hours of testing and adjusting to achieve what I was looking for. The result is a unique lure with an incredible action and swimming pattern - even when fished at extreme slow speed for tricky pike during the coldest part of spring. When fished at high speed the action of the lure is just as incredible. I have no doubt that this will become a classic big fish lure in the future. Tight Lines"! made of ABS plastic and it is lead free material. It has a Japanese style carbon steel hooks with a full wire-through-body construction and it comes with various hand painted detailed colors.
