The goal of Katsutaka Imae and Yuki Ito was to land targets from the 4m+ range with a mere 57mm long shad body. The mounting position of the instant shifting balancer system Micro LBO (PAT.) allows for a super forward leaning posture impossible with normal ball weights. Ito moved the balancer head towards the intersection of the lip and body using a shaft with super small diameter bearings that made the extreme forward mounting design possible.
With field tests using 6lb fluorocarbon line this big-lipped small shad demonstrated extremely long flight distances and succeeded in generating an astonishing diving vector. The outstanding fusion of aerodynamics and hydrodynamics have given the IxI SHAD the extreme performance needed to strike at deep targets. It is the ultimate solution for compactness, realism and performance.
