Jdm paddle tails

Post by Hogsticker2 » Sun Nov 06, 2016 2:52 pm

Anybody try any of the many Japan market paddle tails? The likes if Geecrack Gyrostar , Osp Dolive Shad, or Fisharrow Airbag Shad? Any others?

The Rhythm Wave is a stank but effective swing impact fat alternative. Better durability and a different rolling action.
This is the way.

Get the fish arrows. Amazing bait and caught one of my largest fish on one. The foil in the middle adds that extra dimension most paddletails dont have...

For finesse swimbaits, theres nothing that compare to the action, softness, assortment of colors, shaps and sizes that the Keitech company offers. Others love Megabass swimmies but the keitech has your needs covered.

If your just looking for swimjig trailers look for a thicker paddle tail to produce a better thumping action

Keitech all the way.

I tried geecrack gyrostar recently and it has close to no action. Very disappointing considering how awesome bellows gills worked for me.

Looks like some Keitech reps decided to revamp a very old thread 🤷‍♂️. Many, many other JDM paddle tails on the market now. So many that I don't even use Keitech.
