Freedom Tackle and Z-Man Team Up!
Z-Man Fishing Products, maker of The Original ChatterBait brand bladed swim jigs and 10X Tough ElaZtech® soft plastics, is pleased to introduce the ChatterBait Freedom vibrating jig as a new addition to its ever-evolving lineup at the 2016 GEICO Bassmaster Classic. Widely regarded as the ‘Super Bowl of bass fishing,’ the event will take place March 4-6 on Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The ChatterBait Freedom launch is the culmination of a product partnership between Z-Man and Canada-based Freedom Tackle Corp. that merges Z-Man’s patented head-to-blade connection with Freedom Tackle’s interchangeable, swinging-hook design made possible by the company’s proprietary internal connection. The result is an all-new bladed jig that allows for easy hook changes, infinite lure customization and snag-free fishing. As important, the new product launch showcases the sharing of advancements and intellectual property between two tackle companies that also share the common goal of providing anglers with a unique—and genuinely better—product offering.

“We’ve been prototyping and testing bladed jigs with swinging hooks for several years now, and the best design we’ve found—bar none—is Freedom Tackle’s interchangeable hook design because it not only allows for easy customization and weedless rigging, but prevents fouling altogether,” states Z-Man President, Daniel Nussbaum. “While other companies in the industry seem intent on copying and working around the intellectual property of others, we felt that we could provide anglers with the best product possible by partnering with another innovator like Freedom.”

And, the top brass at Freedom Tackle Corp. share in Nussbaum’s excitement.

“For years, we’ve been asked by customers to create a vibrating jig with our advanced interchangeable hook design to complement our successful lineup,” remarks Michael Tamburro, Freedom’s CEO and founder. “Instead of building our own lure that lacked the direct head-to-blade connection that makes ChatterBait brand bladed jigs so effective, we chose to partner with the leader in this bait category.”

Heralded by its ability to produce an erractic crankbait action, jig profile, and enticing spinnerbait flash—all in a single, easy-to-use bait—Z-Man’s patented bladed swim jig design is umatched in the industry and has arguably accounted for more bass tournament winnings in the last 10 years than any other lure. The addition of Freedom’s swinging hook design enables soft plastic trailers to be Texas rigged so that they exhibit an exceptionally free, natural, and weedless swimming action, and the industry-first internal hook connection elimintates fouling and allows for quick and easy hook changes. Each ChatterBait Freedom lure is constructed with an extra-strong quick clip for increased durability and a skirt that rides on the neck of a 5/0 VMC X Long Wide Gap hook, and pairs perfectly with a variety of ElaZtech baits, including RaZor ShadZ™, DieZel MinnowZ™, Grass KickerZ™, StreakZ™ and more.
