Type: Heavy Sinking
Heavy sinking minnow with inertia slide to get fish to bite !
Heavy-sinking minnows have revolutionized lure fishing in mountain streams. The D-CONTACT is a minnow with an "inertia slide" action and is truly the spark that ignited the heavy sinking minnow.
The "D" stands for "Distance," "Deep," and "Direction," which are achieved through the use of an ultra-thin body form with a built-in heavy weight made of tungsten. While it was the spark that ignited the popularity of heavy sinking minnows, its high level of perfection is unrivaled, and its high popularity continues to this day.
Inertial slide transitioning to low-speed region
This is a world not found in ordinary floating or sinking minnows. With existing minnows, the fish will repeatedly move, stop, move, stop, and so on. When the minnow stops, it tries to regain its posture by buoyancy (even sinking minnows have buoyancy to regain their posture) and does not move forward, resulting in a "stop. D-CONTACT, due to its own weight, twists forward while trying to regain its posture due to the law of inertia. This is inertial sliding. After that, it shifts to the low speed range.
In the sequence of motion → inertia slide → motion → inertia slide, fish are lured by the "motion" and recognize the time of slow but moving inertia slide to the low-speed region as a bite opportunity. The same thing can be seen when birds and beasts catch prey.
Does not pop out when twitched in cross down
Although down-crossing and down-casting are used less than 10% of the time when fishing upstream, there are always situations where it is necessary to do so in some places. D-CONTACT was developed as a minnow to be cast upstream frequently to produce a fluttering action by twitching, darting, and a wiggling sliding action by jerking. However, a minnow that focuses only on upstream casting will not have a real feel for the field. Sinking minnows have a weakness in reverse twitching due to their nature, but the D-CONTACT's potential remains unchanged from upstream, across, and downstream. No more hassle of switching to floating minnows on the way down.
The lure's heavy weight allows for fast falling speeds and the ability to target deeper water. It can be used at various ranges depending on the retrieve, the distance between twitches, and the position of the rod tip.
The slightly backward fixed center of gravity allows the lure to fly much farther than conventional lures without shaking. When there is a headwind, you will appreciate the weight of the lure.
Visual shape change
The thin body and unique shape of the D-CONTACT is designed to make the target fish aware of the significant change in its shape when it flutters and rolls slightly. When the target fish looks at D-CONTACT from below, it looks thin and fragile, but when it flutters and rolls, the shape changes drastically, making the fish aware of the change.
Heterogeneous reflection light
The mask and body are covered with different holograms to give them a strong presence in the water. The coloring of the lineup is also designed with an emphasis on practicality, considering both natural and attractor-type colors. For example, the #TS and #TS laser have different reflection efficiency underwater. The same is true for the #Yamame and #Yamame Laser.
Black finish ring and hook specification
Achromatic black finish. Hooks are chemically polished for a crisp sting.
