Tiger: Black spine and black head with gold reflector sides and scale pattern. Cataloged for this lure starting in 1971.

Sonics: In 1964, Heddon produced the Vibra Sonic line of lures which has a reflector- like plate on either side of the lure. It was embossed with a design that ranged from a hexagonal to a scale like pattern and in some cases, little of any pattern. The following year, 1965, it came with glitter on the sides and remained that way until the end of production in 1970.

Ace Stanley: Heddon's Ace Stanley metal lure, also called the "Ace Bullet", c. 1950's, was gold plated.
