(Jun 12, 2015 - Plano, IL) It’s often said the simplest solutions are the best answers to life’s little tribulations. Take, for example, the quandary of keeping your soft plastics in the same pristine shape as they were the day you bought them. You know, having them remain in the very fish-catching forms they were designed to be even after seasons of storage later.
Gone are the days anglers would take softbaits from their original wrappings, tuck them into heavy-duty resalable plastic bags and then squeeze as many as of those they could into totes. All it took was one cast with one of these compressed creatures just a few days later to realize this was not the right way to go about it.

The end result? What was once a package of expensive swimbaits, grubs, minnows, worms, lizards and the like were mashed, smashed and mutilated; basically each and every bait rendered worthless because they got bent out of shape and stayed that way.
So what’s the uncomplicated answer to the worm-warping predicament these days? Plano Elite KVD Speedbag Wormfiles – rugged gear that allow anglers to keep their precious plastics in their original packaging and perfectly organized and easily sorted. And the Elite KVD Speedbag Wormfile is constructed tough enough for the world’s most well-know and respected angler, Kevin Van Dam (KVD), to initial them.

“The Plano Elite KVD Speedbag Wormfile is the most efficient system for storing soft plastics, and they allow quick and easy access to your baits for when the bite suddenly changes,” says seven-time Angler of the Year Van Dam. “You can load these bags up yet still keep the integrity of your softbaits. And using only the most reliable plastics is more important than many anglers realize.”
The Plano KVD Speedbag Wormfile features a unique aperture that folds out and opens wide to allow easy access to each and every package of plastics, and then closes tight via a heavy-duty zipper with pulls that are easy to grip, even with gloves on. Durable nylon handles make transportation by hand a breeze.  
New for 2015, the Plano Elite KVD Speedbag Wormfile comes in three sizes to meet every angler’s needs. The 480570 is a 7.5” x 4.5” x 5.5” bag that holds up to 20 packs of plastics, while its bigger brother, the 480670, is a 9.5” x 4.5” x 6.25” totes up to 20 magnum packages with room to spare. And then there’s the massive 480770, which at 14” x 4.5” x 5.5” can house up to 40 packs of your favorite plastics while still keeping its contents un-crushed.
The Plano Elite KVD Speedbag Wormfile truly is a simple solution to keeping soft plastics in tip-top shape.
