They say you can't improve upon perfection but Haines Hunter are attempting to do just that with a new and improved 490 ProStrike Sport currently in production.

The ProStrike is the boat behind a number of award winning efforts. This year members of the Shimano Fishing Team took out both first and second places at the Australian Bream Tournament in the 490 ProStrike.

Haines Hunter general manager, John Haber, says the new model ProStrike will make it the best performing high speed boat on the market.

“We believe this boat will blow the competition out of the water.”

In addition to a sturdier hull the new ProStrike also features plank on the bottom, foam filled and deluxe fit out to deliver maximum stability at the highest of speeds.

The modifications aren't just limited to improved handling – the new model will also feature more leg room under the console, extra drainage in the cockpit and a new look dash console layout to enable the boat to fit bigger sounders.

A number of big names in the fishing industry have already thrown their support behind the new ProStrike including the Shimano fishing team, fishing and footy legend Andrew ‘ET' Ettingshausen, Chris Wright Australian Bass & Bream Champion along with Shaun Clancy of BLA.

The new ProStrike is expected to be launched by Haines Hunter this year in conjunction with Shimano, BRP and Lowrance.
