Slow and Strong – the power of ribs

The DeadSlower from top Japanese brand Jackall is a new shad tail soft plastic especially designed for ‘dead slow’ retrieving for black bass fishing. Its multi-ribbed body catches the water flow so that it wobbles even at a slow speed, fascinating its target.

  • What are its three stand-out features? Multi-ribbed, tail keel and leaf-type paddle.
  • What sizes? Two – 5.5ins and 4.8ins – to allow anglers to select the body size suitable for the bait.
  • What are the colour options? There are ten to choose from.
  • When can I get my hands on them? Available in the shops from March 2022 at 935 yen (4.8ins; USD $8); 5.5ins size not priced yet.
