Most predators use sight as their primary hunting sense. Even when they are not actually hunting, a well fished lure can induce a strike. Making sure you are using the most attractive lure will enhance your chances of a strike.
Getting a predator to attack your lure is a combination of many things, but one of the most important is how your lure reflects light. Predators are highly tuned in to the flashing of prey fish as they dart to escape.
FLASHBOOST is an exclusive Shimano technology that suspends a foil mirror on springs inside the lure. This mirror continuously reflects flashes of light, even when the lure is stationary, increasing the chances of a strike.
Using lures with FLASHBOOST technology will increase you chance of action, especially in clear water or when fishing on bright days or near the surface. The constant flashing from the lure is often irresistible to hunting predators.
You can have the most effective lure in the world, but if you don’t place it in sight of your target fish you won’t get a strike. That’s why accurate long range casting is so important when predators are located at distance or close to cover.
Casting longer and more accurately is a combination of many things but one of the fundamentals is the balance and aerodynamics of your lure when it is flying through the air during the cast.
JETBOOST is an internal weight which moves on a spring. The force of the cast moves the weight to the back of the lure creating a weight-forward balance which keeps the lure flying straighter and for longer.
JETBOOST will give you more distance and accuracy. This will enable you to target new areas that most anglers can’t reach. And you can be sure that as soon as your lure hits the water the weight will move back to the perfect position for balancing the lure.
Most predators have exceptional sight and using lures that are as life-like as possible, with realistic scale patterns, can give you an advantage when compared to using a lure with a smooth painted finish.
Prey fish have many different scale patterns which have evolved to protect the fish when they are in shoals. But when they are individually exposed they can offer the highly tuned predator an advantage.
SCALEBOOST is a three-dimensional holographic film that replicates the scale patterns of prey fish with remarkable life-like reality. The three-dimensional representation looks realistic from all angles of attack.
Using lures with SCALEBOOST gives many advantages. You can exactly match the prey fish and fish your lure directly in the prey fish shoal, or fish it individually to entice a predator strike when they are not in a feeding mood.
