MOLIX & ICAST 2015 in Orlando, FL
Also this year Molix was present in the USA, in Orlando, Florida to attend the ICAST 2015 the most important exhibition for sport fishing products and outdoor life.
As every year, the Italian brand brings many new products. Some of them secretly guarded until the show days despite being in testing since a long time. Among the many, the one that stands out on all is the new Molix “Supernato Beetle”, a soft top water crawler with a seductive and sinuous movement. The Beetle comes from the study of the Italian designers at Molix and thanks to an intuition of the talented American professional angler Mike “IKE” Iaconelli. Another innovation that has found much interest was the “Lover Spinnerbait”, a “multi blade” spinnerbait thought by Mike Iaconelli and characterized by 3 blades and a realistic “flat head” design that increases the characteristics of swimming and sinking. The basic idea of IKE is to recreate with this spinnerbait a real “school fish”.
Also the new SS Shad 5 “or ” Special Swimming Shad ” has attracted many people, intrigued by the versatility of this shad and the system of interchangeable weights called EWC System (Weights Easy Change System).
Another important change that will see Molix at the forefront in the US in the coming months was to sign a prestigious agreement with the famous magazine “Bass Angler Magazine” who kept up the campaign for Molix lure since long time thanks to the cooperation with Mike Iaconelli.
Last but not least, finally a big thank you to all the staff at Molix USA who was the real architect of this success: Mike Iaconelli, Christian Borucki, Casey Tucker, Brigitte Leuthold and Molix USA distributors . Exceptional, motivated and professional, they have helped to manage the Molix booth with great enthusiasm and confidence for future growth.

We are very much looking forward to repeat our adventure in the future, those Cuban reefs are addictive, the WTD 150T has been baptized with those toothy critters, what a test!

Molix at the Pitman Creek Wholesale Show
Molix is at the Pitman Creek Wholesale Show that will take place on Sunday the 19th and Monday the 20th of October at Somerset, Kentucky. This new relationship between Molix and Pitman Creek started this year at the ICAST show and grew stronger thanks to this union of synergies, shared interests and goals that brought us here, in Kentucky. This show gathers exclusively the Pitman costumers, a chance for the wholesaler to put together the orders for the 2015 season.
We are thrilled about this new collaboration with one of the foremost US wholesalers, an important opportunity for Molix to reach important goals in the future in the US, such an important market for our company.
Molix ICAST 2014
For the l’ICAST show that will take place in Orlando (Florida – USA) from July 16th to 18th 2014 Molix (booth #1403) will introduce four new products that the company considers very important for the US market: two soft plastics, one hard bait and one spoon.
SWD 5″ (SWIMMING DRAGONFLY)
Length: 5″ (12,5cm)
The new SWD 5″ Swimming Dragonfly is the closest dragonfly larvae imitation from the Italian designs of Molix Workshop. It features double thickness flaps to enhance the floating power. The heavy density plastic mix increase casting distance and lifelike legs that trigger aggressive bites during steady retrieves. The SWD 5″ Swimming Dragonfly is two baits in one, just cut the head to use it as an insect and the body as jig trailer. The SWD 5″ Swimming Dragonfly can be used swimming, Texas rig or with your favorite jig and jig head.
SATOR WORM 5,8″
Lenght: 5,8″ (14.5cm)
The Sator Worm 5.8” is the big brother of the Sator Worm series and amazes for the great mobility and the accurate details of this soft bait. The hollow sphere on the tail can hold a bit of air and enhance buoyancy and movement that trigger the wariest predators. It can be rigged Wacky, Shaky, Texas style, Neko or with a dedicated jig head. The 5,8″ Sator Worm sure is the best option when chasing the biggest fish in the most complicate environments.
Weight: 5/8 oz (17g)
Lenght: 2.5″ (6.5 cm)
Weight: 1 oz (30g)
Length: 2.5″ (6.5 cm)
A compact spoon with scales engraved on the upper side, the Spoon 30 by Mike Iaconelli has a very natural action during the fall that imitates a dying fish that slowly drops to the bottom. With medium-slow retrieves scatters side to side while retrieved fast it spins on its axis. The swivel rigged on the head prevents line twisting. The Spoon 30 has been developed together with the US professional angler Mike “Ike” iaconelli. The Spoon 30 by Mike Iaconelli is available in two sizes/weights
Weight: ¾ oz (21g)
Length: 2.75″ (7cm)
During the design phase of the Molix Lipless we focused on three main points. First of it has been taken a special care on the balance to achieve the best possible snag proof effect and to have a lure able to get out of submerged branches and obstacles of every kind. Then we wanted to achieve a good rolling action during the fall, and finally a original and robust sound. Needless to say that the Molix Lipless casts like a bullet. The Molix Lipless is endorsed by the US professional angler Josh Wich.
