Hi guys,
I received a parcel from Japan today. An old customer of mine from Japan sent me this handcarved swimbait. He usually sells them to a small group of clients (that he has picked out). There's only 10 of these lures made every year and I was lucky enough to be asked to do a video about one. Unfortunately for the high-end lure collectors, these lures are only sold domestically in Japan. On top of that He charges anywhere between around 400 to 1400USD depending on the customers demands. Something I would never buy but definitely interesting to make a video of!

Very interesting for sure....out of my price range, but very cool. Looks like a lot of effort went into it....

Great looking quality. This bait would be the bomb on Texoma, Stripers would kill it!

Nice, even if I could afford it I'd either loose it on a stump, or a fish would break my line and steal it

If I knew I'd catch a 12+ I'd buy it and not worry about it

Haha thanks guys! I'm expecting another parcel from Japan sometime next month. Apparently there's this prototype that requires testing on some US / Texas Bass so naturally I accepted to be the guinea pig. Unfortunately I will have to send the prototype back realmad . Will keep you guys posted!
