  H150X HyperViper Xtra(Ultra deep)

Big barramundi
HyperVIPER Xtra is based on Predatek’s renowned Viper - arguably the hard-bodied lure most frequently relied on by impoundment anglers targeting big barramundi.

It's identical to the standard HyperViper except for its hardware which is extra heavy duty and two hooks instead of three.

HyperVIPER has been developed in response to angler demands for a Viper that probes the 8-10m band when large predators hold at depth in summer.

It’s unlikely that you can cast far enough to allow HyperVIPER to reach maximum working depth. However, its fast descent still comes in handy when you’re casting to steep-sided structure like rock walls and along log studded banks. HyperVIPER’s retrieve resistance is moderate so you can cast longer with less fatigue.

HyperVIPER is designed for trolling. It has the Viper’s classic rock ‘n roll movement and wake the dead rattle incorporated in a more vibratory action. This is a fast-tracking lure that can handle 8 knots in search of pelagic predators like tailor, tuna and mackerel.

Even if you don’t need HyperVIPER’s ultimate depth ability, you’ll appreciate being able to troll it on a shorter line, closer to your boat, when following rocky shorelines or winding river channels in 3-5m of water.

Maximum depth achievable is dependent on a variety of factors.

DUAL tow points
Versatility! Tow your HyperVIPER from the nose or the bill tow point. From-the-nose gives a strong action and faster descent. From-the-bill gives more depth, faster trolling and less retrieve resistance.
