PSWB - Purple Scale, White Bars?

COLOR NAME: Purple Scale, White Bars?
LURE(S) PICTURED: Midget River Runt Spook (9010PSWB), Crazy Crawler Spook (X9120PSWB), Tiny Torpedo (360PSWB), Chugger Spook (9540PSWB) , Dying Flutter (9502PSWB), Baby Chugger Spook with box (9520PSWB), Sonic (385PSWB)

Midget River Runt Spook & Tiny Torpedo: Purple scale belly and sides, purple face and spine, white ribs on sides, yellow eyes. The Crazy Crawler has a solid white belly. This is a Japanese color (Smith) for the Crazy Crawler and wasn't available in the U.S. market. The related color code is also for a Japanese Crazy Crawler, SUPSWB-SP, and is identical in pattern but the finish is matted or 'flat' or what is sometimes called a 'fur finish' though it isn't really furry. The Crazy Crawlers are a recent special order production for the Japanese market, c. 2005.

Note the Sonic rib pattern is an arrowhead style.
