"EXCLUSIVE TO BIG BLUE IN NEW ZEALAND"
Super stretchy. Long-lasting through many fish and multiple uses…usually well over 100 catches per bait.
Will not harden or dry out. Will not harm fish or animals if ingested.
Shimano Iidako's have super soft material enables the bait to look and feel real and to naturally move even with the slightest of currents or action. Add in naturally proportioned designs with minute detail and natural scent, you get baits which really bring in the fish.
You will be amazed at how many fish you can catch on just one bait! With the durability of 10-100 times more than ordinary plastic baits, Iidako's baits will save you money.
Shimano's uses unique, proprietary nanotechnology to render these baits bio-disintegrable in real-life conditions. No high temperatures or special conditions needed. And don’t worry about the baits breaking down in your tackle box after use. They won’t. If stored in their packs, they will remain super soft and stretchy, just like new, for years. Unlike other baits, Iidako's will not harden or dry out if left in the sun nor swell if left in water.
Shimano builds the scent into the baits. After some use, the scent can be refreshed by giving the baits a good stretch. No liquids or sprays needed.
Did you know that most ordinary plastic baits swell and stiffen when ingested or left in an aquatic environment? Many fish and other creatures often ingest these discarded or lost plastic baits. Unable to disgorge or pass the swollen stiff baits, the fish can no longer effectively hunt prey or escape predators, usually leading to their death. Shimano Iidako baits will never swell or harden if left in an aquatic environment or ingested by an animal. Shimano's super soft baits will be passed or disgorged, or remain super soft inside the animal without inhibiting its motions.
Shimano Iidako's baits contain no plastisol, phthalates, environmental hormones or any other substance known to cause harm. There are no harmful chemicals to leach out. No matter how the bait is disposed of, nothing harmful will be left behind.
Iidako's baits float, giving you greater options in how to present the bait to fish. No need for special jig heads to stand the bait up on the bottom. Antennae, tails and appendages “stand up” and gently move while drawing the attention of the fish.
Shimano's regular super soft baits vary slightly in their softness depending on the model, but all have fantastic action and naturally flutter with the slightest of movement, giving an enticing presentation fish cannot resist. Iidakos baits also retain their softness at lower temperatures than other plastics making them ideal for ice fishing.
