Super compact frog supervised by Yukiya Uchiyama! ! From the frog genre to the realm of the insect genre
Supervised by Yukinari Uchiyama, the "CHIQUITA Frog" is an ultra-compact frog lure measuring only 38mm in total length. Despite its frog-like appearance, this tiny hollow body lure is capable of imitating not just frogs but also insects. This minuscule-sized body, which can be considered as opening a new door for hollow body frogs, allows for stress-free handling with baitcasting reels even when using thick PE lines, thanks to the introduction of CT SV technology. It can also be used with power spinning setups without experiencing any stress when using PE lines. Even anglers who have been hesitant to use frogs in the past should definitely give it a try on their usual fishing grounds to experience its effectiveness firsthand!
A super compact body with a total length of 38 mm and 6.2 g, which is probably one of the smallest hollow frogs. Not only can you produce smaller baitfish, but you can also produce "insects" that bass often use as the main bait in wild ponds and small reservoirs. It is effective not only as a bait tackle that can handle lightweight lures such as CT SV, but also as a spinning tackle with a PE line.
At first glance, the skirt (70 mm) that feels a little long compared to the body size and the cups on the front are designed to invite you more carefully at one point. The front cups themselves act as a resistance, and the longer the skirt, the stronger the force that pulls it backwards. With their synergistic effect, anyone can perform a light swing action that minimizes the movement distance.
Weight setting with a deep draft that reduces buoyancy and sinks the body deeply into the water. Compact frogs, which are easily affected by wind and waves, have a deeper draft to improve water bite and improve operability. In addition, the visibility from the bass is also improved, so the presence is increased, and even short bites like those seen in the post-spawn period will be properly sucked into the mouth of the bass and the hooking will be determined.
Instead of the rubber skirt that is often used for frogs, we purposely use a silicone skirt. A skirt made of silicone has the advantage of being able to create a color that is transparent and has good color development. In addition, since the buoyancy is weaker than the rubber skirt, the draft of the body itself is lowered and the effect of improving water bite is also created.
