(Mar 18, 2018 - Plano, IL)
Kevin VanDam knows a thing or two about bass fishing. Need proof? VanDam has won the Super Bowl of bass tournaments, the Bassmaster Classic, an unprecedented four times. And he has been named the Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year, seven times. Any questions?
Anglers like VanDam don’t outfish the rest of the crowd by leaving things to chance. So, what is it that separates the best anglers from the rest? Besides their inherent ability, pro anglers and guides consider organization, tackle and equipment management a critical component to their daily routine on the water. Ultimately, operating efficiently saves time. Making decisions quickly and having the ability to implement them is how elite anglers stay in the game longer. In KVD’s words, “If you’re looking for something, you’re not catching bass, and that’s a problem.”
Plano’s new KVD Wormfile Speedbags™ offer KVD-grade performance and efficiency for organizing plastics. Available in two different sizes, small and large, KVD Wormfile Speedbags are optimized for storing up to 20 or 40 individual bags of soft plastics, respectively. “These fast-access zippered bags keep individual bags of soft plastics upright and uniformly oriented, so you can find what you need fast,” says VanDam. “And Plano’s patented fold-down design allows them to be fully opened to reveal wide interiors for even greater visibility, while remaining sturdy and self-supporting.”
KVD Wormfile Speedbagsare constructed with a high-performance, waterproof fabric shell featuring a Thermoplastic Elastomer, or TPE coating. This durable design is the same TPE waterproof fabric shell found on KVD Signature Series Tackle Bags and offers unmatched water-resistant protection from the elements. The speedbags also feature a just right, bright red interior that not only improves visibility in low light, but won’t bling too brightly in direct sun either.
Like millions of other anglers, KVD relies on Plano to keep his fishing gear protected and well organized – at home, in the truck and on the water. “Obviously, my entire boat is geared towards efficiency with my tackle storage, and the foundation is the Plano 3700 Stowaway box. But, what I’m really excited about this season are the new KVD Wormfile Speedbags for organizing my plastics.
This storage option keeps the baits in the original, unique packaging, which is very desirable. Baits like Dream Shots and Ochos stay nice and straight and are easy to organize. Plus, baits like Rage Craws that are packaged in individual clams maintain the integrity of their unique packaging,” says VanDam. “This is much better than putting all of your baits in a big bag where appendages can become kinked or the body may end up bent. It’s a great system.”
Today’s soft plastic baits come in an ever-increasing number of styles, sizes and colors to cover a range of presentations and applications. That means even casual anglers carry more soft plastics with them than ever before. But carting around a selection of bulky plastics takes space, and simply piling them into a single bag makes finding what you’re looking for a challenging and time-consuming proposition. KVD doesn’t go that route, so why should you?
Affordable KVD Wormfile Speedbags are just what bass anglers need to organize soft plastics by style, size or color and label the exteriors to make finding exactly what you need ever easier. These classy black bags feature bright red accents and interiors, failsafe looped zipper pulls and side-carry handles for transport. Ultra-efficient storage of soft plastic baits has never been easier… or looked this good.
