This winter beauty was caught on our new Kitchen Sink Swinging Hammer on the back of one of our prototype Swim Jigs in 4 ft. of 43 degree water at Briery Creek Reservoir on March 1st. Gotta love that Swinging Hammer! http://www.powerteamlures.com/4-8-swinging-hammer-1/ With more than 25 years of experience and thousands of hours on the water studying the feeding habits and instinctual aggressive behaviors of bass, the designs for PowerTeam Lures were born. Our company was created by avid bass anglers, influenced by tournament anglers and was brought to life by the hardcore anglers just like you. Our baits are produced with high quality neutrally buoyant plastics that incorporate just the right amount of salt and a special blend of amino acids. The result is a superior line of soft plastics baits that allow you to mimic the realistic actions of prey with every twitch of your rod. And once the bass strike, our special blend of amino acids keeps them holding on long afterwards, which gives you plenty of time to slam back and set the hook. This winning combination of designs, buoyancy and amino formula is then complimented with tournament tested colors to bring you prey imitations that will help you excel in any situation. Welcome to PowerTeam Lures…the home of your new “go to” baits. Get Some!!

  1. Nice Drum on First Cast 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Aug 2014

    Only used them twice so far. the first time a bluefish chomped the tail off of it. The next trip I put one on a 5/8 oz. jig and caught a nice 20 pound black drum on the first cast. On the next cast a bluefish bit it off. Oh well, I'll try to keep them away from the blues!

    This jig has beautiful action in the water. Our speckled trout season heats up in about another month. Can't wait to see how they do on them and puppy drum.

  2. The Best Swimbait I have Ever Used 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Jun 2014

    There is no other swimbait on the market that has the tail action that the Swinging hammer has. It is a big fish magnet, You can swim it as it is or as a trailer for a chatterbait or my favorite a swim jig .This bait has caught more 5 plus pound fish for me than any other bait I have ever fished.

  3. Best Paddletail out there ! 5 Star Review

  5. Killer swimming Bait!!!!!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Apr 2014

    I used the PTL 4.5 Swimming hammer this weekend in the Money and Smoking minnow colors and the specled Trout loved them! The biat works really well in al tyoes of conditions and using the 5/0 tick shakes hook setup with the minnow works great for going weedless! I look forward to many more adventures with the swimming hammer!

  7. swim this!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th Mar 2014

    Unbeleavable action.. If you are looking for a fabulous swim bait this is the one! I used these in a tournament here in jacksonville fl and was just amazed of the action of these baits with no time to test and tune I put them straight to work. Tons of bites I just couldn't put it in front of a big girl..
    If you are looking for a swim bait that bring lots of attention I highly recommend no disappointments here what so ever and now one of my rods have been dedicated to the hammer from now on..

  8. Can't wait to throw it 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2014

    The Swinging Hammer comes in great colors. The bait's action is tremendous. We are only a few days past ice out on Ohio waters so I have not had an opportunity to use the bait extensively. It looked great in my pond today. We have a lake near my home that is known for the biggest bass in the state. I hope to have some photos for you the next time I contact you.

  9. Hammer Time 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Mar 2014

    Awesome action that promotes strikes. Even with finicky fish. Love slam shad on a 1/4oz keel weighed screw lock hook. Gotta get more.

  10. Awesome Swimbait 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Mar 2014

    This thing was impressive last fall when I had my first half dozen packs of the 4.8" Hammer Shad. I found a nice hook weighted on the nose from 1/4oz-3/8oz in a 6/0 size.

    I fished it on 30lb Braid, I would bump it up to at least 40lb if you are planning on fishing scatted pads and shallow flats with cover. The bait has a good weight to is and casts very far. The 2nd half of that body moves roughly 2-3" to either side when slow rolling the bait or reeling it fast…Stop it once crawled over a piece or cover or weed and watch it thump it way slowly to bottom. I caught lot's of annoying pike on this bait and it would hold up on 2-3 fish easy…That's impressive considering the teeth. I got onto some nice bass also. Soak the bait in HogTonic so the fish hold on for that extra few seconds.

    Give them a try, very nice baits with lot's of action and always seem to run true no matter how fast or slow you fish.

  11. Spinnerbait Gold 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2014

    Slammed an absolute pig of a northern largemouth last year fishing this behind a spinnerbait. I love em.

  12. Must have! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Feb 2014

    The swinging hammer is a blast to fish. Weightless over pads and top of grass it works like a buzzbait or horny toad and can be paused over holes. You can put it on a swim jig, A-rig or a weighted hook.

    My favorite riggings though are on the back of a spinnerbait and on the owner flashy swimmer hook. When used on a spinnerbait, you don't have to worry about short strikes, they inhale it! In the spring when they start feeding up and anytime they are feeding on shad, the swinging hammer is a must have.

    It is also great for new fishermen or little fishermen that accompany us sometimes because all they have to do is cast and wind and they get bit. My son loves this bait.

  13. Swinging for the fence 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Feb 2014

    The Swinging Hammer has action like no other. Being able to use a soft plastic bait like you would a spinnerbait or a buzzbait is incredible. Everytime I would used to throw a buzzbait or a spinnerbait, I now throw the Swinging Hammer at 'em.
    I subscribe to the theory about there being no rules. I use the Swinging Hammer in the saltwater for Red Drum. Red Drum are mean, Powerteam Lures including the Swinging Hammer hold up for a long time after taking a beating.

Product Description

Single Pack: 5 Ct.

Hmmmm, there was something really important that I wanted to say about this bait. Oh what was it? Oh yea…now I remember. I CAUGHT MY PERSONAL BEST LARGEMOUTH ON THIS BAIT THE VERY FIRST TIME I TOOK IT ON THE WATER!!! An 11.46 lb. pig to be exact (I'll never forget the giant bulging eyes on that mule)! But don't let that bit of information sway you. Let the massive side to side swagger of this bait sway you. After all, that's what swayed that monster bass into engulfing it. My toes still curl just thinking about that glorious day! Oops, there I go day dreaming about that fish again…my bad. Back to business!

The action of this bait is never compromised regardless of what your retrieve speed is. From burning it on a ½ oz. swimbait hook all the way down to a slow weightless crawl along the top for a seductive wake, the performance of the Swinging Hammer gets fish all jacked up like meth heads on a fresh fix (especially the big ones)! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna peace out on this write up so I can go watch the video of my hog again. It never gets old!


Bob's Tech Tip

This is another one of those baits that I put a drop of PRO's Soft Bait Glue on the screw lock of the hook when I'm rigging it. Fish smash this thing with a vengeance so that little drop of glue will definitely save you money in the long run because you'll get many more fish per bait. Hey, did I mention the fact that I caught my personal best largemouth on this bait? Just checking!

P.S. Slooow rollin' this bait for shallow pigs is one of my personal favs. But it's a free country so you can do whatever you want.
