New Majorcraft Egi Zo Bait Feather 1.8 and 2.0 jigs
Majorcraft have expanded their range of high quality Japanese spiked squid jigs with the arrival of the 1.8 and 2.5 Egi Zo Bait Feather jigs built using the very same technology that goes into the standard Egi Zo jigs with a few subtle differences.
The Bait Feather series uses reverse bird feathers designed by the renowned Dr. Sonoda. The reverse “bait feather” imitates the chest fin of small fish and can produce a light sharp dart action by minimizing the resistance at the time of the rod movement. In addition, it has a large effect on the lure’s flight trajectory, reducing air resistance and increasing the casting distance. The sinker shape is also designed to suppresses water resistance as much as possible and reduce snagging.
Available in 10 colours, the new jigs come in glow, blue glow, UV and standard effects. These are impregnated into the clear body of the jig, not the cloth colouring.
The Glow is effective in situations where you are looking for high appeal. Areas such as muddy water and even night, this colour will be the difference. It is considered in Japan to be an excellent prospecting or searching colour.
Blue Glow is considered an all-rounder, suitable for night and day. They say that blue glow is identified easily by squid and therefore is an excellent colour to draw in hungry squid.
The UV is an exceptional daytime option. The UV absorbs and emits ultra-violet rays and emits that light. It is a proven attractor for squid in high pressure locations.
With this addition, Majorcraft Egi Zo jigs cover 1.8 all the way to 3.5 sized jigs in a massive range of class leading colours. All the jigs have a sharp nose that encourages a quick darting action, while on the body, a side edge ensures the jig falls with stable attitude. A slow sink rate makes them stay in the strike zone longer.
