Outside the window the beginning of spring, but many lakes and rivers are still covered with ice. Despite the fact that we love to fish on the ice, looking forward to good fishing in may. In preparation, and at the same time, memories from last season, I want to show you a very interesting lure, imitating the pike.
Welcome to testing the 3D Hybrid Pike lure from Savage Gear.
3D Hybrid Pike is the sequel series of lures that mimics the natural substance. As before, the technology of 3D scanning has been used in the production process as much as possible, reproduce every detail of the anatomy of fish.
In this case, as the base was used pike. Interestingly, this lure is a combination of a rigid body with a soft tail. In the set we get one tail in the form of a Twister – very soft and large, and the second a little shorter, ending with the classic hoof.
Manufacturer Savage Gear has released two models of size 17 and 25 cm, with weights 45 g and 130 g, respectively. This type of bait is for large baits. The most suitable for the jerking, that is jerkbait fishing. Under dash wiring do not have a strong resistance to water and well cut small predator.
Quality and performance
The overall impression is bait for fishing with spinning, which boasts a Savage Gear. We are also very closely follow the lures of a 3D series. The amount of detail and realism is something fantastic. Each element of the lure is carefully selected and thought out.
The tees are very sharp and match the bait size. Model 17 cm is equipped with one #1, and the model 25 cm already has two # 1/0 and # 2/0. The paint quality is very good, nothing departs, and does not crack, and after contact with a large pike remains only a small groove. The rubber tails are painted in the same color as the body of the lure. In a box they don’t stain each other. Color gamma is in natural style, with the characteristic spots of pike.
It is a decoy, created primarily for catching large fish. In our waters number one is pike, and we need to focus on it. Hybrid Pike is pretty much a universal jerk. We can easily catch on it at depths of 1-5 m, and for the more patient anglers – up to 8 m. This is a sinking lure, so you need to make a throw, wait for the achievement of the desired depth and start posting.
The biggest mystery and the unknown was how to work the interchangeable tails and looks like a replacement. It turned out that the manufacturer has decided this question is very simple and at the same time the perfect way. Of the body shell is the spiral, which is attached to the selected tail. Due to this the lure has two different jobs.
With tail Twister lure the lazy, the body stands still, and a long fleshy tail swings. In addition, there are several ways that you can use in this decision. One we found – just turn the tail 180 degrees – then the lure at a constant posting will go up. This method is well suited for pike in shallow water.
The second solution is if you turn the tail 90 degrees to the left or right, the bait will go in one direction or the other – ideal for pike from the shore. The solution Twister and more came to us under jankovoy catch.
Tail with a hoof is another solution. With it Hybrid Pike gets new life, the lure becomes more aggressive, the whole body swinging in the rhythm of work of the tail. This solution is better suited for uniform transaction or, for example, for trolling. At this stage it is also worth mentioning the location of the tee.
This bait idea is that after a take the fish captures mobile tee without destroying the bait with his teeth. In the event of damage to the rubber tail can you buy it in the same color as the body. For this reason, there is no fear that the lure will be unusable.
Prices on the lures vary depending on where you buy them. 3D Hybrid Pike in the amount of 17 cm is 1150 rubles, and the model is 25 cm is in the range of 1780 rubles. This is a decent price, but you should consider the durability of the bait, which is very large. As long as we don’t break the jerk, it will serve us for a very long time.
3D Hybrid Pike is an interesting solution for catching big fish. Opportunities to fish at different depths make a universal bait for catching of a pike. You can safely use it for jerking and for the classical uniform wiring.
We believe that it is worth to try these baits if you are going for big pike.
