Strike King to Debut KVD Tools at ICAST 2020

Lexington, S.C. – July 10, 2020 – As fishing has developed over the years, so has fishing tackle, and as the technology of equipment has advanced, so has the need for implements to maintain them.  With that in mind, Strike King is introducing an entirely new set of hand tools and accessories designed by the most iconic angler in modern bass fishing – Kevin VanDam.

 

For an angler like VanDam, seconds saved in rigging lures or repairing gear can be the difference between a giant win, or an average finish.  So, VanDam partnered with Strike King to develop a set of tools that can help make life easier in the shop, on the boat or at the shoreline.

 

The tools feature everything an angler might need.  The series features everything from scissors, several pliers, braided line cutters, lure wraps, filet knives, a multi-tool and a pair of Ocho Wacky tools for wacky rigging Ocho soft stickbaits.
