In 2013 Hogy Lure Company introduced the HDUV Paddle and Eel Series with Barbarian Jig Head rigging, while these baits have been a timeless classic, the Protail Thumper offers easier rigging, a more durable Protail Softbait Plastic, and a damage-reducing Battle Pocket along the dorsal for reduced softbait damage after multiple fish. Paired with the bluefin tuna and tarpon-tested Ultra Barbarian Jig, these Swimbaits are ready to tackle any trophy species.
Designed for DIY anglers, the Protail Thumper is designed for ultra-thumping vibration and wobble, durability, and simple, perfect rigging every time. Each bait is infused with high-visibility UV pigment and heavy-duty blended soft plastic for solid jig head connections. We recommend pairing it with the Hogy Ultra Barbarian Jig Head for a perfectly balanced presentation.

I’m extremely excited to fish the new Protail Thumpers on a Barbarian Jig Head. Love the fact that they have that tube to make rigging them as easy as can be. Also love the fact that they are just as easily removed off the jig head to make changing colors/styles a snap.ASAndrew S.Verified Buyer
