Yamashita Egi Oh Q Live Search 490 Glow 3.5
YAMASHITA EGI-OH Q LIVE SEARCH 490 BASIC TYPE SQUID JIGS - 3.5
As a result of extensive research undertaken by eging pioneer Yamashita, it has been identified that squid recognises temperature variations in the water. This has led Yamashita to develop a unique Egi Oh Q LIVE squid jig featuring a patented thermo-storage cloth called the 'warm jacket'. The cloth reacts to light (any form of light; sunlight or artificial light) and will maintain its temperature for longer than traditional cloths. With the capacity to hold heat similar to natural fish the LIVE jigs are more successful in attracting squid interest since they can recognise temperature variations when hunting prey. The new material is called 'Tactywarm' which is weaved with a unique thread that is able to change light into heat. It can absorb light from sunlight to artificial light, changing it into thermo energy about 0.5 degree celsius to 1 degree celsius warmer in the water, depending on the conditions.
Yamashita also patented the nose design. It is the thinnest nose available on any of their jigs but does not compromise its strength. This gives it the advantage of minimising water resistance when hopped which gives the jig more action for less effort. The LIVE jerks alot sharper when you lift the rod, generating a much better 'walk the dog' action. Other features of Egi Oh Q Live include large, flat eyes with a glow edge, super fine spikes, Hyper Direct SUS eyelet to maintain jig strength and protect against breakage or leaks, a knife-edged sinker to reduce resistance in the water, and a striking body to make it easy to retrieve the jig. It also has a much longer casting distance than many other jigs.
The Yamashita LIVE SEARCH squid jigs feature a number of unique features but what sets this jig apart is the 600 hz rattle inside the body. Yamashita have discovered after much research with a leading Japanese University that squid can pick up sounds between 400hz and 1400hz with 600hz being the optimum level for squid to be most interested.
To achieve the 600hz Yamashita needed to change the plastic body material to a bone plastic material and use stainless steel bearings (not glass or plastic). This combination results in a high pitch rattle that no other jig on the market can replicate.
490 GLOW was developed by Yamashita after research showed the best wavelength of visible light for squid is 490nm. 490 GLOW stickers are attached to the LIVE search so it now incorporates the best sound for squid, the best light for squid, the warm jacket and the easiest darting action for the angler.
490 GLOW - tuned 490nm light wavelength which is the best light for the squid's eye to detect.
Double crown hooks - stainless steel hooks
Slim Nose design - Yamashita has a patent on the slim nose design on the LIVE jigs. This slim nose helps impart a sharp darting action (more action with less effort from the angler)
Basic is available in 23 colours in sizes 2.5, 3.0 & 3.5
