I just picked up one of the type 3. Anyone fish them yet? Will try to report back when I'm able to get out in a couple weeks. The hooks are very small. Seems comparable to a shad rap to me.

Just picked up the type r and it does remind me of the shad rap as well. Rivers and lakes are still frozen by me sadly so I won't be able to test it out anytime soon but judging from videos online, the action does seem quite nice. One thing though that is kinda bothering me at the moment is the weight system. I like it but it seems to have a harder time moving to the back of the lure than the front. I have to give it a hard shake in order to move it back.

A cast should generate a lot more momentum / inertia than you can with your hand. If it moves in your hand, there shouldn't be an issue with it moving when casting it. No issues with the weight system on mine. What color did you end up with? I grabbed Ito Ayu, was debating between that and the Imae classic.

I got the sexy oyabu shad color. Was debating between that one or an orange crayfish color but I have a lot of crayfish color cranks so I decided to go with a shad color.
