The Whirler (Svängsta-Virveln)
Originally introduced in 1949 as the Svängsta Virveln or the Whirler was sold in two sizes 3/7 oz or 1/2 oz (12 g or 13 g) and from 1954 1/4 oz. (7 g or 8g). The listed colours in Sweden and the U.K. were S, K, G, Z, Cr, S/G and S/K. In America they were listed as G, Cr and Z..
The spinners in the photograph, from left to right, are - The Whirler in Z, Svängsta-Virveln in S/K, Little Whirler in Cr and Svängsta-Virveln in G. Note that all 4 lures are early models with brass beads (pearls), on later models red beads were introduced. Sales of this lure ended around 1966.
I am attempting here to create (with the help of others), the greatest collection of illustrated information about Record ABU lures ever collected together and freely available for all to learn from. Obviously image copyright for alternative publishing purposes always remains with the owners.
Please feel your input, help , criticism is very welcome and I look forward to expanding with network of Record ABU lure collectors and appreciators.
Contact me here to assist.
If you have any other lures, that are un-needed or doubles in your collection and are available for swapping or a reasonable fee, I would be very pleased to hear from you.
