"Taking realism to a new level" does not go only for the exterior of Realis Onimasu, our new swimbait release, but also for it`s action.

It`s a different shaped swimbait. Its swim action although S-curve swim-action is different. It static pitch is different. Its internal structure is different. All these arrangements and more were purposeful.

In this video we demonstrate the lure's various gait (long, short, linear and wide gait). We also demonstrate “tumbling” the lure to increase depth and flash. With seated time, the Onimasu will work in traits similar to crankbait and jerkbait movements all in one. It was designed not to "crump" during faster travel no matter the swing.

True s-curve/s-stroke bait were designed to fish slow; now you have more diversity in the rate of travel. This for example aids tournament anglers using the lure to cover water creating a reaction bait.

Another plus is that most the lure action can be accomplished with the real handle (example sharp quarter turns of the reel handle give off a tight tackin` eliminating heavy "twitchin" from the rod). You will note the "head down" posture which will be new to most anglers. You will eventually learn/experience the benefits of this position.

In the future we will touch on how to fully expand the use of the Realis Onimasu, the pioneer of the Prometheus Project.

Put this one to "people`s voice" as well.

We used to have "Midnight Black" color in our range several years back, but through our color range reshuffle, it has lost its place in Realis color range.

However, since the color was dropped it has become one of the most sought after color with tens of inquiries on monthly basis and we listened...

Introducing...

Midnight Black II

The first lure which will see some "darkness" will be the topwater phenomenom that is Realis Pencil 110 and you can soon also look forward to addition across Realis Jerkbait range,

Tide Minnow has been a series that for many came to become synonyms with seabass and barracuda fishing and has become iconic not only in the Mediterranean region. The last few years were however turbulent for Tide series as the domestic seabass market suffered greatly after the Great Earthquake of 2009.

The last year however has seen a great resurrection of the brand and with a revamped color line-up, it`s time to increase not only the color variation, but also the product range.

Here is the first peak at at Tide MInnow family addition to come. I will leave you with five words:

Tide Minnow Slim 200 FLYER

The Fang Ops Concept

A new sub brand has launched in the internationally renowned Realis series, Fang Ops (Fang Operations).

Utilizing DUO's highly advanced molding technology, the lure designs were headed by DUO CEO and Chief designer Masahiro Adachi in close collaboration with One Bite One Fishe`s Kazuhiro Uyama, a predator fishing icon, who provided invaluable insight based on his vast global experience and know-how. Contrary to the notion of JDM (Japanese Domestic Model) being associated with finesse usage, Fang Ops lures were created specifically for daring anglers around the world, with a toughness and durability that could match any monster anytime, anywhere.

Keeping true to DUO's motto “There is Only One”, the standard-setting Realis Fang Ops lures will be a must-have for the predator angler going beast mode.
