I'm late to this party...first I'm seeing of this. Hat's off for the innovation...very cool. Bet action is fluid and natural. I'm curious about potential casting "issues" as well.

Might not be cast, could be trolled.  If that’s Biwa (didn’t notice), I think that’s a tactic they used for the big’uns there.

Depends on the material and its water retention.  If it has a sponge core, it will hold water, just dip it in the water, soak it then cast away.

Sort of like the concept behind that water filled floating bobbers that double as a weight. 

If you get it right, you could make it VERY affordable and very profitable as production cost could be way cheaper than an ABS bait. 

I think DRT is on to something here..

This concept reminds me of some thing he mentioned in one of his videos when we was developing the Frenzy. 

Check it out.

It's some cool tech, I want to see a background video of how that concept came about and the R&D that lead up to this point.

Hmmm..... Nope. Looks cool in the tank, but the tank is a rod tip feet away manipulating. Probably a nice close quarter bait, albeit one with 'snag me' on it over the entire surface area. Close quarter Bass tend to hit anything placed in front of them though, I see little advantage here. Perhaps crystal-clear depth, with no chance of snag, might make sense. But only if it can be cast distance or there's not much point to it. Not trying to be pessimistic, just sharing thoughts

Love that quick rise on the pause, though…

Imagine if it had slightly more mid articulation causing the tail to swing just slightly wider. It would be something incredible. I still really think DRT is onto something here.  Excited to see more of this, hopefully soon!
