The new Yo-Zuri® 3DB Series™ with 3D Prism & Wave Motion Vibration are so innovative, they have two International Patents.



 



The new 3DB baits from Yo-Zuri have two features that bass find totally spellbinding. The internationally patented 3D Internal Prism and Wave-Motion Vibration spark an instant bite response.

 

All 3DB Series lures have a patented ribbed surface that creates distinctive wave-motions and vibrations that fish can detect with their lateral lines from a long distance. The second impressive feature of the Yo-Zuri 3DB Series baits is the flash created the 3D Internal Prism. An injured baitfish will swim erratically, sending out flashes of reflected light from its broadside of scales. The Patented 3DB Series duplicates this nervous behavior.

 

The natural patterns and colors combined with the lifelike body shapes with attention to detail on gills, fins and scales, creates an strikingly realistic looking baitfish. Add to all these features, large Injured/Dying fish "Redeye" on all 3DB styles, makes these the target for gamefish to eat.

 

All have premium components; Black Nickel split rings and Round Bend Black Nickel VMC Hooks. Durable Mylar tail hook on styles that are appropriate.

 

3DB POPPER

The new Yo-Zuri 3DB Popper’s big mouth creates a huge splash, and then its ribbed body sends out higher-pitched Wave-Motion Vibrations. That combined with the flashy 3DB Prism makes this popper irresistible. This perfectly balanced popper with a pulsating tail feather has a duel-action technique; traditional “Pop & Stop” or “Walk the Dog”. The popper’s round buoyant body sits horizontally for best presentation and easy target.

 

3DB PENCIL

A top-of-the-line, topwater, “Walk the Dog” lure should be on your fish catching line-up. 3DB Internal Prism flash and big internal cadence rattles create incredible drawing power big bass can’t resist.

 

3DB PROP

A topwater lure that comands attention! With its rear prop, sending out a constant splash and vibrations of an paniced baitfish, it raises a ruckus and big gamefish.

 

3DB CRANKTM – SQUARE-LIP SHALLOW, MID CRANK, DEEP CRANK

The wobbling-rolling action of the three new 3DB SQUARE-LIP SHALLOW, MID, and DEEP CRANK Baits hunt fish everywhere in the water column, from shallow to deep. Their large round buoyant bodies and lip designs help you crank & bump over structure and eliminate snags.

 

3DB Minnow and Jerkbait

The 3DB Minnow is a floating lure specifically designed for a variety fishing styles; stop & go retrieve, “twitching” technique, cast & retrieve.

 

The 3DB Jerkbait is a suspending lure with an irresistible minnow shape. Perfect for stop & go retrieve and / or pause / jerk, / pause technique. The tail feathers pulsate to tempt even the most wily predator.

 

3DB SHAD FW SUSPENDING


 



A true-to-life Shad lure with the Patented interior 3DB Prism flash that will bring fish in from long distances or in stained water. Complete with pulsating tail feathers and a ribbed body that emits a fish attracting “look what’s for diner” wave-motion vibration.

Lew’s bolsters spinning reel lineup with two new high-speed series



 



Lew’s steps up its spinning reel offering for 2014 with two all-new and high quality series - The Tournament HS (High Speed) Speed Spin ® and the Team Lew’s Gold Spin.

 

Tournament HS reels sport a premium 10 stainless steel bearing system and a lightweight but strong graphite body. Spools are double anodized aluminum and ported, and feature a parallel line-lay oscillation system. Graphite rotors are digi-balanced; bails are lightweight hollow stainless steel. An oversized aluminum line roller helps reduce line twist. All reels have a super smooth carbon Teflon multi-disc sealed drag system.

 


 



The Tournament HS series consists of four models: TS100H, weighing 6.9 oz. and holding 150 yards/6-lb. test; TS200H, at 8.3 oz. and holding 140 yards/8-lb.; TS300H, at 8.4 oz. and holding 140 yards/10-lb.; and TS400H, at 9.6 oz. and holding 160 yards/12-lb. Line retrieves vary by model size, ranging from 25 IPT for the smallest, to 38 IPT for the largest. All models come with a rubber arbor spool adapter for use with braid.

 



 



Tournament HS reels are sharp-looking with their black body and rotor, and silver accents. Each model retails for around $79.99.

 

Team Lew’s Gold Spin high-speed series reels feature premium 10 stainless steel ball bearing systems, and lightweight, high-strength carbon C40 bodies and side covers, with sealed-body engineering.

 

Sealed engineering affords special protection to select ball bearings in critical locations, the Zero-Reverse one-way clutch bearing and the carbon Teflon multi-disc drag system.

 

Additional weight reduction comes from Team Lew’s spinning reels having double anodized aluminum spools with carbon graphite inserts, hollow stainless steel bail wires, an aircraft grade aluminum main shaft and machine cut aluminum handle.

 

There are four models in the series: TL1000H, holding 150 yards/6 lb. and weighing 6.3 ounces; TL2000H, holding 140 yards/8 lb. and weighing 7.3 ounces; TL3000, holding 140 yards/10 lb. and weighing 7.4 ounces; and TL4000, holding 160 yards/12 lb. and weighing 8.5 ounces. Retrieve ratios vary by size, ranging from 25 IPT to 38 IPT.

 



 



 



All models feature digi-balanced graphite rotors and a parallel line-lay oscillation system. Oversized titanium line rollers help reduce line twist. External screws are stainless steel. An external lube port affords servicing convenience. Each reel comes with a rubber arbor adapter for use with braid.

 

Team Lew’s Gold Spin spinning reels retail for around $129.99 each.

 

Both new series of reels, Tournament HS and Team Lew’s Gold, feature components suited for saltwater, as well as fresh.
