How can we add a bite-triggering factor to the monotonous straight worm’s action? KIRIKAKE is a brand-new straight worm that has resolved this challenge with KAESU’s ingenuity.ts hallmark, KIRIKAKE (notched) tail quickly opens and closes even with the weakest water flow. As the water resistance increases, the unique right-and-left micro-vibration comes to play. In shaking, the body bends dynamically as the ultra-thin tail dances and entices. In lift-and-fall or swimming, the form of the tail becomes that of small fish, creating high-pitched vibrations. When it’s in a staying mode, KIRIKAKE maintains the subtle shape as a straight worm should be that doesn’t scare away the bass. When you add a rod action to it, the dynamic and complex actions trigger a bite. These characteristics are quite effective for Texas, Neko rig, down shot, wacky jig head, or anglers’ latest favorites such as free rig, Jika rig and other bottom-attacking rigs. For the middle range, where the swimming action with the undulating body and micro-vibrating tail is attractive, KiRIKAKE works excellent as a jig head rig in falling along vertical structures or in the lift & fall. Also, for mid strolling, where the stick bait has been the mainstream, KIRIKAKE will bring astounding results as a new approach.

MATERIAL マテリアル

MATERIAL マテリアル

The salt content is limited to 10% to secure resiliency and flexibility in the material. We insisted on this ratio for a long life and speedy bouncing. This is the key to the dynamic bending and fast rebounding actions and to the strong body and tail that resist tearing and breaking that are common among straight worms.

BODY FORM ボディフォルム

BODY FORM ボディフォルム

We have chosen the circular body to allow the traditional straight resting position. It has a slit to help you gauge a stabbing location during a hook setting.

TAIL DESIGN テール形状

TAIL DESIGN テール形状

The knob at the tip of the notch catches water and opens up the notch, which creates resistance. The water resistance causes the body to flex widely and the super-thin fin-tale to flutter. As the water resistance increases, the notched part begins to look like a tail, micro-vibrating. During the lift & fall or swimming, the body’s pulsating bending mimics thin, live bait fish.

RIG リグ

RIG リグ

◾️Neko Rig
As KIRIKAKE tail quickly responds to the water flow, opening and closing the notch, each action adding water resistance and causing more dynamic bending and flexing of the body. It also creates time lag in bouncing back. Neko rig magnifies the bending and flexing actions, accompanied with the delicate dancing tail. KIRIKAKE caught numerous bass in the testing period, and Neko rig is the best match for this amazing worm.
◾️Jig Head Rig
Set up as a jig head rig and shake it. KIRIKAKE appeals with the undulating body and the tail that opens and closes. In the mid-range swimming, the tail transforms its shape into that of bait fish, creating micro-vibrations along the body’s up-and-down waving motions, that support the life-like swimming unique to the straight worm. Stick baits have been dominant in mid stroll, but KIRIKAKE can become your mighty wild card.
◾️Wacky Jig head
You can almost say that the wacky jig head is only for the straight worm rig. With KIRIKAKE, you can shake, let it stay, lift, or fall, while all of its characteristics act in concert. From the mid-range to the bottom, this rig with attacking actions works great with KIRIKAKE.
◾️Texas Rig (Attached Weight) and Jika Rig
When you use the Texas rig or Jika rig with a weight attached, KIRIKAKE can push its characteristics as a straight worm forefront in slow reeling, shaking, lift& fall with the tail opening and shutting. It’s quite appealing. Keeping the characteristics of the tail in mind, try moving the rod in big motions. The contrasting actions of quietness and movement is so effective.
◾️Texas (Floating Weight)
In the free rig or Texas rig where a weight is not affixed, the waving body and micro-vibrating tail come to a sudden stop as the sinker reaches the bottom. KIRIKAKE then slowly falls down in a straight form. The animated motion attracts attention and suddenly, it transforms into a slow and finesse shape. Be intentional of that transforming moment and your bite chances will increase.
