Superpin-Tail: By now you would think that the drop shot plastics market has been
overly saturated with "me too" baits. But Jackall isn't bringing "just another" bait
in the Superpin-Tail. Their new 4 inch Superpin-Tail is designed to make small vibrations which resemble an injured bait fish.

crate small vibrations like an injured bait fish
The Jackall Superpin-Tail dropshot bait features
3-D eyes and 6 life-like patterns - Silver Shad, Baby Bass, Ghost Baby Bass,
Violet Shad, Perch, and Goby. These new dropshot baits will be available in
November and will retail for $8.99 for a pack of six.

Prototype - Swimbait: As mentioned above
Jackall teased everyone at the show by displaying some prototype baits, and
none of them even have an official name yet. First up is a swimbait prototype. If you're
familiar with Jackall's products, you'll notice this swimbait has similarities
to their Giron hardbait. This new prototype swimbait is a soft plastic and is
only 4 inches
just like the Giron. Color patterns, weight, availability, and pricing is still
up in the air.

that bears a resemblance to the hard Giron
Prototype - Worm: The Jackall prototype
worm is designed as a swimming worm that features a paddle tail design. These
swimming worms should produce a lot of action when rigged with a weighted hook
or as a trailer on a jig. Currently the prototype is 5.5 inches in length.
Prototype - Worm, will be
effective when swam thanks to the tail
Prototype - Jig: The new prototype jig is
designed to glide through the water. The unique head design makes it so that it
produces a nice action when retrieved and stands at attention when fished on the bottom. The jig will be available in
a number of
sizes including 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2oz.

good shot of the head design but it's designed to generate a unique swimming action
and will stand when fished on the bottom

Conclusion: When we attend ICAST
we are excited to see all the new products but it is always a special treat when we get to see
prototypes. Jackall has confirmed that they will be bringing out a couple of new baits for this new season but
the prototypes also got a lot of attention from buyers and media, and while
nothing is set in stone it is a possible that these prototypes will be
introduced in a upcoming mass production product....especially if there is
enough demand from anglers.
