They’re both originals
Good work Jerry, your JRI line has changed out many a fisherperson's arsenal. I'm ALL in on your detailed work, thank you for doing what you do!!!!
Something tells me that there won't be anyone brave enough to troll one with130# flouro!
These Intruders troll so well that using stranded wire trolling harnesses will not be any problem at all. Stay tuned for more information. Of course that decision is up to each individual angler.
I stand corrected the eggplant is a prototype
One true original and two one jerry paint and one GARY paint .
I just received my JRI Hooicde bombs I ordered from angler"s choice today, I really don"t see that much difference in my captain jimmy and JRI bombs unless the weight is a little different, both are direct tie, a very good bomb...Paul
After seeing the new process and how far it has come from the first prototypes I can assure you these are truly a piece of fine art. Now the task at hand will be to streamline the operation to increase production. It will happen......... The man behind the dark glasses had this little flashy thingy so “I Know NOTHING”.
Stay tuned as I hope to be writing up an entire comparison of all the great Wahoo bombs and jigs on the market.. The major differences will be in the weight, speed the lure can be pulled, sink rates, sink patterns, swim patterns for Jigs and ease of pull thru the water.... Each Bomb has it's own unique personality, sink rates, pull resistance, etc. None of the bombs on the market are stink bombs as every manufacturer's Wahoo specific lures have tons of caught and hooked fish to their names.. But conditions can and will vary.. Having the best bomb for the right moments certainly can help..It Certainly can't hurt. No body wants to look at the hot stick getting hooked up on a different jig or bomb and think, Maaan, if only I had that lure. On the charters I am associated with we team up to throw various artificial wahoo lures and share with each other which colors, styles and manufacturers are best getting bit at the time. More often than not our charters tend to be the top or one of the top Wahoo producing trips of the year. Of course, there are those who can throw out a Rat, Mouse, trout or duck pattern and get bit... But, for the over whelming majority of anglers, having options doesn't hurt at all.. I know it works for us. And the JRI Hooicide Wahoo Bomb is showing itself to be an amazing option.
I already know what they can do for me. Each angler gets to choose for themselves.
I have the Halco 190, both sizes of Cowbells and the Nomad DTX 165 and 200 minnows. I guess I should add the JRI Intruder to the mix!
I know guys who still troll Jet heads with skirts, cast Hopkins and slide home-made sinker bombs.... They catch many wahoo too! Once again it is the fisher, not the gear that makes the biggest difference.
To each their own...

(P.S.) I have lots of gear
It is beginning to sound like a need a tackle box specifically for Wahoo tackle.
Hopkins kills em...
Taken last November at the Rocks love my Intruders
Nice response Jamie, also ill be looking at the JRI Intruder, looks promising...Paul
I have seen wahoo eat all kinds of things on the troll, even an ear of corn.
Don't get me wrong, the Intruder is my go to trolling lure for wahoo and would always be my first choice but long before Intruders came into existence apparently these worked OK as well...
I’m having a hard time finding the gold ones with hammered finish. Anyone know where they might be for sale?
My experience with Marauders and their clones is that when they swim well, they are deadly. Otherwise, if you drag them they will eventually and occasionally catch a wahoo or two. Probably not quite as effective as an ear of corn. Granted, I have seen one Marauder that was apparently a lousy swimmer to begin with that became an absolute killer after being customized. I own maybe eight Marauder-types that would probably benefit from similar customization.
My feeling regarding the Intruder (and this is obviously just an opinion) is that it naturally swims better because of its shape, and that swimming action is extremely consistent from lure to lure because the manufacturing process itself is extremely consistent.
Your mileage may vary.
