A dyed-in-the-wool Midwest finesse angler sent a note to the Finesse News Network, saying that Kei Hayashi's Keitech, Inc. has created largemouth bass baits for Japanese anglers for nearly two decades, and he has recently introduced a pair of new ones that might catch the fancy Midwest finesse anglers and their quarries in the United States and Canada.
They are the 2.8- and 3.8-inch Swing Impact FAT. Both are endowed with a beefy boot-tail. Their torsos are fat and encircled with 29 ribs. Their chunky bodies are hollow and exhibit the shape of a triangle. They are impregnated with significant quantities of salt. All of these body combinations create a dynamic swimming and swinging action.
Keitech says that the bait are constructed by a dual-injection molding process. This process combines two different salted plastics.
The combination of a hollow body and a lot of salt can adversely affect their durability, but Keitech proclaims that the hollow body and salt greatly enhances the action of these baits, giving them a balanced action at any retrieve speed. To improve the durability of these baits, anglers might consider working with super glues and glues that repair tattered soft-plastic baits.
Most Midwest finesse anglers will rig the baits onto Gopher Tackle's 1/16- and 3/32-Mushroom Head Jigs with an exposed hook. But Keitch says that they can be employed on a Carolina rig, a split-shot rig, and a trailer on a skirted jig. Some anglers might wielded it as they would use a Texas-rigged worm and slip sinker.
They are available in 17 colors that are impregnated with squid scent. A package of eight 2.8-inchers and package of six 3.8-inchers can be purchased for $7.49. What's more, they are packaged so that will remain straight as an arrow until the black bass commence having their ways with these Swing Impact FAT baits.
