Jackall's Scissor Comb

Jackall's Scissor Comb

Jackall unveiled its Scissor Comb to American anglers at the 2014 International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades show in Orlando, Florida, on July 14.

It is a six-inch bait that might catch the attention of some Midwest finesse anglers who are always in search of a creature bait that they can employ during the spawn and post-spawn. In Japan, it has already caught the fancy of several dyed-in-the-wool finesse anglers.

Its tail is embellished with a series of 10 carapace-like features. It is torso is skeleton-like, exhibiting eight rather pronounced ribs. Along its tail, one appendage radiates from each side of it. At the junction of the tail and torso, there is another pair of appendages. A third pair of appendages extends from between the third and fourth rib on the torso. A fourth pair branches out from between the eighth rib and its head. A pair of long and thin antenna-like appendages is attached to the tip of its head.

The folks at Jackal contend that its unique shape and 10 appendages allow it to undulate and gyrate differently and more seductively than other creature baits move.


It looks as if it is a very fragile bait and unable to withstand a significant number of largemouth donnybrooks. But Jackall says it is constructed from a dense plastic, which makes it durable enough to catch a goodly number of largemouth bass before it becomes too tattered to stay attached to a hook or jig. Most Midwest finesse anglers will affix it to a lightweight mushroom-style jig, but Jackall says Japanese anglers have had success using it on neko rigs, jika rigs, drop-shot rigs, football head jigs, and the run-of-the-mill Texas rig.


It is impregnated with a shrimp scent.

According to some retailers, it won't be available until sometime during the early fall. One online retailer says a package of five will cost $4.99.

It will be available in six colors: Crawdad, Grass Gill, Green Pumpkin Chartreuse, Green Pumpkin Pepper, Monster Blue, and Watermelon Pepper.
