Been reading fishing reports on a couple of sites over the last few snow covered days, and reading some Japanese mags that Saltiga leant me. One lure keeps coming up. Seems to be a new favourate over there. It is fished as a drift minnow it seems, and has a slow wobble when retrieved. I wondered what you think of it.

I guess you could call it a hard/soft hybrid, tempted???

I sent Keith a small "soft hardbait" to try (not sure if he has yet) - there are a few on the market (I do have the feeling some were designed for FW though - so Im not sure how they would perform in SW with the additional bouyancy n all)

does look nice that one - deffo worth a try

yes you did. Very weird feel to it.
It works nicely enough in tests but as yet, not used it in a fishing situation.

I'll get some pics of it up here.

Duel & Jackall do hard soft vibration baits, good to see it filtering into the SW market too. They are supposed to improve hook up rates too.
