The Crusher series followed in 2009.Tom, as an avid angler and wanted to produce his original designs that had worked so effectively for him over the years. He took the plunge and started the savant spoon company in 2004. No easy undertaking making a name for yourself as a new comer to the tackle business. Tom persevered and before long his designs proved themselves. Savant was being talked about. Anglers were looking for the brand and asking for it by name.The present assortment offered in the Savant range incorporates 3 separate and very different spoon designs. The original Savant spoon the Jake is modeled after the traditional flutter spoon design usually stamped in very thin spring brass. The Jake is stamped in traditional weight brass. It results in a heavier spoon with a similar action that can also be cast. The Winnie is a willow leaf style slender bodied trolling spoon. A classic trout and salmon favourite.
