These are plastic, correct? If so, I'd say that they're Atoms.

The bottle plug is a newer style made by Greg Metcalf after he destroyed the old mold of the older Atom plugs made by Bob Pond.They work OK but aren't even close to as effective as the older poppers.They are still made and came out if I recall right in the later 90,s. The swimmer looks like an Atom 60. Called the Junior.Great swimmers and come in sinking and floating models and were made up through the 80's. Swim real nice. Loads of them around still. the older ones of that model have very defined color lines and are a bit heavier than the newer models. Ron

Any time saltydog. I use the Atoms as much as I do my own. It's what prompted me to start building my own.
