Exciting news it was for us, when leading Japanese rod manufacturer Majorcraft announced to it's dealers sometime last year that it would be diversifying into the lure market. Shortly after, we were given some prototypes to evaluate, of course they scored impressively. No surprises, given the company's already solid reputation built around it's excellent rods. The result of one such test was posted here: http://tacklesource.blogspot.com/2012/11/short-days-test.html
And now they're here.
There are three basic shapes to begin with, a number which will surely increase in a short time. The Jerkbait is a suspending diver that gets down deep and is available in three sizes: 50, 70, 90mm. It is followed by the Crankbait series that comes in Shallow and Super Shallow guise with two sizes for now. The third model is the ubiquitous Minnow. This suspending shallow runner can be jerked or twitched and is offered in 70 and 90mm sizes for the moment.
All models of Majorcraft Zoners come in 8-10 exciting colours ranging from natural mimics to bright reaction-inducing hues, so there is surely one for all situations and anglers. Like Majorcraft rods, these lures represent great value for money and are super-competitively priced against the typical Japanese brands. This will be something local anglers appreciate, so be sure to look out for them at any well-stocked tackle shop.
