The Yo-Zuri® 3DB Knuckle Bait has made the leap forward in wire baits. After years of development and testing, this
unique wire bait performs an erratic action that resembles a knuckleball
being thrown from a pitcher’s mound. The aerodynamic design allows for long casts. While its versatility allows it to be used
with techniques such as slow roll, flutter fall, bumped along the bottom, and ripped through underwater vegetation.
Available in attractive bass-catching colors, the 3DB Knuckle Bait is a
guaranteed home run in the water.

Release notes from Yo-Zuri:
Yo-Zuri is proud to announce the launch of a brand new style
wire bait, the likes of which have never been seen before! It’s called the
Knuckle Bait, and it is truly one-of-a-kind. Developed and tested for nearly
three years, the Knuckle Bait is now ready to hit the American market and its
waters for the first time ever!
What gives the Knuckle Bait its name comes from the ball which is
attached to the wire, in a similar position to a spinnerbait blade. But this is
no ordinary wire bait. The Knuckle Bait’s action is what makes it so unique.
There are two styles of ball that are available; a 3D Prism pattern and a
painted Sound Ball pattern. When this bait is retrieved, the ball wobbles in an
erratic action, much like a knuckleball thrown from the pitchers’ mound.
The Knuckle Bait is a 1/2oz wire bait, and is remarkably aerodynamic
which means it can be casted to tremendous distances. It’s also highly
versatile as it can be fished by itself or along with a swimbait or creature
bait trailer. It can also be fished many different ways: reel quickly and keep it
on top, and the Knuckle Bait becomes a wake bait. “Slow roll” it along the
bottom and pull it through vegetation, the Knuckle Bait is surprisingly
weedless! It also stands upright on the bottom when the retrieve is stopped,
allowing anglers to fish it with a flutter-fall technique.
The Knuckle Bait comes in two different finishes: 3D Prism and
Painted. In all, anglers can choose from 7 different colors. Painted finishes
include Chartreuse, Red Crawfish, and Pearl Shad. The 3D Prism finishes are
Golden Shiner, Gizzard Shad, Shad, and Tennessee Shad.
