Duo Realis G-Fix Vibration Lipless Crankbait
The Duo Realis G-Fix Vibration is a lipless crankbait featuring an extremely thin design which creates an unparalleled vibration and shimmy action. Displaying the same profile as the standard Realis Vibration Bait, the G-Fix version distinguishes itself with the addition of internal tungsten ball bearings as opposed to the steel used in the standard models. This modification results in a heavier, louder bait that can be retrieved at a much faster speed. The G-Fix Vibration also possesses a more violent fall when ripped from the bottom using the yo-yo technique.
A compact sized lipless crankbait, the G-Fix Vibration from Duo Realis was engineered to appeal to highly pressured bass that are preying upon small shad and other baitfish. Maintaining a thin, yet highly dense body, Duo was able to eliminate some of the common issues with lipless crankbaits while maintaining all the positive features of the lure style. The thin, compact size reduces the lure's surface area and focuses the weight in a central location that aids in casting distance and helps the lure navigate through vegetation. The unique shimmy action can largely be attributed to the thin sides which creates uniquely erratic falls as the lure is ripped through grass. The centralized weight also ensures the lure will remain down in the water even when anglers impart a stroking or burning retrieve to elicit reaction strikes. Furthermore, even at extremely high speeds the G-Fix Vibration crankbaits will remain running true and continue to emit the pulsating action they are known for. As we have come to expect from Japanese lures, these lipless crankbaits display a high quality finish with color patterns encompassing the entire spectrum of forage options bass feed upon. What's more, the lure possesses the loud sound emission of the internal tungsten beads that call fish to come check out the intruder.
We offer the Duo Realis G-Fix Vibration in two sizes: 62 (2.44" - 1/2oz) and 68 (2.67" - 3/4oz).
About Duo Realis G-Fix Lures:
The Realis G-Fix series was put into shape based on the conception of Mr. Takashi Nishijima, who is a pro-guide based in the Biwako area with his sights on "big bass". The first model was developed with Mr. Nishijima's strong determination and belief in the heavy weight tuning model of a super flat body, rarely seen in injection type vibration lures. The fixed steel ball (6.0mm x 1) and the free moving rattle balls (3.0mm x 10) have been replaced with the same size tungsten spheres. Furthermore, a molded fixed weight has also been added in the head section of the lure increasing the total weight by 3.5g compared to the normal model.
Following the drastic increase in weight in the head section of the lure, it has enabled the lure to reach the bottom as fast as those football jigs and the fast initiation of action from the super flat body won't give the fish a chance to differentiate it from the real thing. With the lures stable sinking posture, we have drastically reduced the chances of the hook to pick up the line during the fall. The rattle sound created from the free moving balls are impossible to create in blade baits, strongly appealing to the target. Furthermore, the weight distribution concentrating in the head section has also enabled the lure to maintain its tracing range, exhibiting its true potential in shallow areas with fast retrieval.
With the least amount of water resistance on the compact body of the 62mm model, it has amazing response, especially productive against inactive fish appealing with the sharp action of the lift and fall technique. Furthermore, it is generally difficult to hook up these inactive fish but with the petite body size, it helps the fish to suck-in easier, resulting in a better hook-up ratio. The Realis Vibration G-Fix is a new generation of lures which have paved a new path for vibration plugs.
