LIVETARGET’s Latest Injected Core TechnologyTM (ICT): The Slow-Roll Shiner
New Injected Core Technology™ provides a Match-the-Hatch™ breakthrough that outshines traditional paddle tails.
Niagara-on-the-Lake, ON – LIVETARGET’s new Slow-Roll Shiner is a paddle tail swimbait designed to mimic a thin profiled baitfish, such as a Minnow, Shiner or Herring. Featuring the Company’s new Injected Core Technology™, it turns the paddle tail category on its head with a life-like baitfish profile and an action-inducing clear shell that typical paddle tail baits simply can’t emulate.
Most paddle tail swimbaits are manufactured using a standard injection process. The front end of the bait can be somewhat realistic; however, in order to generate the paddle tail signature rolling action, the tail shape needs to be long and boot-like, which creates an overall unnatural profile, making game fish wary.
LIVETARGET’S solution is Injected Core Technology. A life-like Inner-Core is constructed with a realistic Shiner profile, detailed anatomy and vibrant metallic colors. The core is then encapsulated in a crystal clear, durable Exo-Skin, which generates the bait’s signature action and is less noticeable under water. Game fish focus on the natural profile of the forage and are not alarmed by the transparent action-generating mechanics.
Ideal for both fresh and saltwater fishing, LIVETARGET’s new Slow-Roll Shiner allows anglers to Match-the-Hatch® like never before. Anatomically superior in appearance with its dark eyes, scaled body, and perfectly placed pectoral fins and gill slits, this new entry also features a graduated, natural-looking color scheme. Add in its hard-thumping action and you can instantly tell gamefish will be on high alert the second it hits the water.
One of the key advantages of ICT is the ratio of plastic between the Inner-Core and Exo-Skin. The Inner-Core is much smaller than the overall cubic mass of the entire lure. That means anglers can present a smaller hatch size but still have the advantages of throwing a bigger bait. The Exo-Skin adds 30% more clear plastic which increases the overall weight, enabling anglers to cast further, use a larger hook, and feel more direct contact with the lure. For the first time ever, anglers can fish smaller hatches for bigger strikes.
Slow-Roll Shiners can be rigged with a spring-lock hook for targeting suspended fish, worked Texas style in shallow water, or impaled on a jig head to precisely probe bottom structure, making them extremely versatile. A convenient hook channel keeps them weedless and improves hook-up ratios when rigged in a snag-free fashion. Throw them for black bass, hybrid stripers, walleye or crappie in your favorite sweet waters, or try them on salty flats, marshes and in back-bay areas for redfish, snook, stripers, sea trout and more.
LIVETARGET Slow-Roll Shiners are available in 3”, 4” and 5” sizes and six natural-themed metallic color patterns with a MSRP of $9.99 USD (three or four baits depending on size). They come in clamshell packaging to protect against warping and distortion.
