Custom Jigs & Spins has introduced the Rotating Power Minnow (RPM) for 2016 – described as a ‘must-have’ lure that brings several novel features to the vertical swimming jig category.
The RPM’s body is anatomically accurate, featuring a natural belly, arched back and large eyeballs. It is also heavy for its size, allowing it to fall quickly.
Its 11 colours range from the realistic minnow-imitating patterns to fluorescent hues that predators can see from a distance in the dingiest of water. Custom Jigs & Spins says that there is a pattern to match every baitfish species and water clarity condition.
The RPM doesn’t drop lifelessly. It has a wide, natural swim and sway action on the fall as well as when it is being pumped. It is not only the engineered tailfin that gives it the lifelike motion, but also a built-in swivel that adds to the rotation.
The rotating line-tie does more than add to the action; it also keeps the line from twisting without having to add a leader-line and swivel.
The RPM’s hook configuration is well thought out. There is no nose-hook to catch the bottom of the ice hole, meaning less lost fish. A coloured epoxy ‘eye’ is moulded onto the lower treble hook for added enticement alongside a smaller tail-treble.
