Deep crank that hit the channel lines of Lake Biwa !
The "BWK" series is an IK crank exclusively for Lake Biwa.
With its overwhelming flying distance, the longest in its class, its ability to quickly reach the maximum diving range, and its lightness compared to its size, the BWK series takes channel cranking, which used to be hard work, to another level.
Of course, the built-in rattle and center-of-gravity shifting system, which is a feature of the Mosaic series, is equipped with a soft tungsten rattle and center-of-gravity shifting muffling mechanism that does not alarm spooked bass.
This is a special crank for Lake Biwa, released by the absolute king of Lake Biwa, Katsutaka Imae, who once reigned over the lake, and his cutting-edge guide staff.
We intentionally did not use a wounded lip in order to counter the strong winds peculiar to Lake Biwa, and also to give the lure a feeling of being caught in the hard, short weeds at the bottom of the channel around 4m, so that the weeds would "hold" the lure.
The maximum diving depth of 4.2m was designed by Katsutaka Imae, who once won four consecutive Lake Biwa championships.
The depth of the main channel, the biggest cranking spot in Lake Biwa, is mostly around 4.2m.
It is also a fact that wrecks, shell dumps and fish reefs are concentrated in this depth.
IK-420BWK Straight Lip
Straight lip is adopted to make the lure catch on the short weed and to hold the lure in the weed.
High sensitivity design to quickly reach 4m line and tell anglers the presence of short hard weeds and small hard bottom.
The Mosaic series comes standard with four hooks on the rear hook. Even when only the rear hook is hooked, which is often the case with cranks, the four hooks reduce the number of single hooks, and even when a single hook is hooked, the left and right hooks prevent the hooks from getting out of control, drastically reducing the number of breakage.
Soft Tungsten Rattle
Produces a strong wave action, but the sound quality is thick and sweet without spooking bass.
Elastomeric Impact Sound Absorber
An elastomer is attached to the front and rear of the center of gravity shifting system to absorb the shock of the sinker. This eliminates the bass spooking sound that occurs when the sinker collides with the body.
