What do you tie on your rod when you plan to target a 20kg Papuan Bass, 40kg barramundi or 100kg arapaima? What tackle generates enough confidence to tie it on even when fighting a world class record fish? We offer you the answer – the Fangbait series.
Developed by Kazuhiro Uyama and tested on his many trips to chase the greatest of world’s predators, Fangbait aims to become a staple in “beast hunters” tackle boxes. In contrast to the countless long lipped diver shaped lures on the market, Fangbait DR series is equipped with outstanding castability. These types of lures are mainly utilized for trolling and when cast, the long lip prevents it from maintaining a stable flight. Fangbait DR series however is loaded with a moving weight system enabling the lure to cast great distances.
As a pioneering model for Fang Ops brand, it represents the concept of building some of the toughest lures in the world to the fullest. The tag team of 120DR and 140DR has been built to tackle even the largest of the “beasts” guarded by a strong 1.2mm diameter thick wire running through the whole body. By running the wire through the outer side of the body, we were able to further reduce the plastic usually required around the wire, while increasing the air chamber for more buoyancy. We have also inserted 3 different sized stainless-steel pins to secure the wire which runs through the body. This prevents the wire from coming loose, while reducing the weight by trimming the unnecessary meat off the body.
The next generation diving jerkbait, Fangbait DR series will change the conception of what was known as a diving type lure.
