ZipBaits Khamsin SR

Rating: 4.9

ZipBaits Khamsin SR

The second in a row, but not in importance, the representative of the ZipBaits company is the best wobbler for pike according to the users, and at the same time the real flagship of the Japanese manufacturer. Initially, this series was intended for catching bass, but later, by trial and error, it changed its focus on catching freshwater predators like zander, perch and the aforementioned pike. As one of the two members of the Khamsin line, the SR series works exclusively at shallow depths – up to 1.5 meters with a body length of 70 millimeters (initial version).

In the body features of this wobbler, all the nuances and features characteristic of shads are traced. In particular, there is a hump in the dorsal part, which creates additional diving oscillations, and flat, flattened sides, which accelerate the sliding of the artificial fry in the water column. Unfortunately, all this splendor is expensive – in terms of price, the Khamsin SR is significantly superior to its opponents in terms of rating, which limits its use to the circles of professionals and real fishing enthusiasts.

Advantages

  • phenomenal pike catchability noted by users;

  • presence of noise accompaniment;

  • variability when making a posting;

  • modified geometry, which has a positive effect on the dynamic performance of the fry;

  • the highest popularity among anglers;

disadvantages

  • the highest price in the collection.

Megabass Vision 110

Rating: 4.8

Megabass Vision 110

The next flagship of a well-known company, this time Megabass, combines even more useful properties than its previous “brothers” in the rating. This classic minnow with a small hump on the back and 110 mm body belongs to the class of slow-emerging wobblers, suitable for fishing in shallow rivers with a depth of 1 meter. Uses a 'floating' tungsten balance bar that moves to the tail when casting and restores its position at the head when driving, thereby making the game more attractive.

In turn, users are more interested in the fact that Megabass Vision 110 is perfectly combined with any method of fishing, whether it be jig, twitching, trolling or Stop & Go wiring. The only drawback of this wobbler can be considered the level of cost, which is almost twice the average price on the market.

Advantages

  • the presence of a 'floating' balancer;

  • widespread in the domestic market;

  • versatility in terms of postings;

  • high quality workmanship;

  • excellent flight characteristics;

disadvantages

  • high price.

ZipBaits Orbit 110 SP

Rating: 4.8

ZipBaits Orbit 110 SP

One of only two representatives from ZipBaits to be ranked for the 'strongest' aspect of trolling pike. It has a pronounced hump in the dorsal part, which is why it loses the appearance of a standard minnow and acquires movement elements uncharacteristic for this type of wobblers. Arouses genuine interest from users due to the versatility of the leads, easy control and the ideal (according to most) long-distance casting system. From the point of view of external characteristics, ZipBaits Orbit 110 SP also has a couple of significant advantages. One of them consists in a very good, durable varnish coating that reliably protects the main color from coming off, and the material of the wobbler itself – from an early breakdown due to predator bites. The second advantage is expressed in a large number of color schemes – about 48 – suitable for any fishing conditions.

Despite outwardly ideal conditions, ZipBaits Orbit 110 SP faced a serious problem that affects the company's image. The fact is that the high popularity of the wobbler has contributed to the growth in the production and sale of counterfeits that cannot withstand any competition with the original.

Advantages

  • a combination of 110 millimeters of length with 16.5 grams of weight;

  • suitable for all fishing methods;

  • 48 colors according to the catalog;

  • resistant coating that protects the wobbler from mechanical damage and burnout;

  • work on the horizon of deepening from 0.8 to 1 meter;

disadvantages

  • the presence on the market of a large number of fakes that do not meet the declared technical characteristics.

Rapala X-Rap 10

Rating: 4.7

Rapala X-Rap

Over the past decade, wobblers of the X-Rap series have become the real flagship of the Finnish company Rapala, and fortunately, the preconditions for a quick change of their role to something less significant are not foreseen. A 10-centimeter fish with a whole set of useful qualities and properties is so fond of domestic fishermen that even yesterday's newcomer will consider it an honor to have such a bait in the collection. The combination of impressive length and no less impressive weight (11 grams) gives the X-Rap 10 long casting propensity and gives the user the opportunity to fish straight from the shore. The attractive effect is provided by a combination of three factors: the direct movement of the fish in the water, the presence of a tail edge and the vibroacoustic effect from a small blade in the front part of the wobbler.

Complements the picture of the ideal pike wobbler and the choice of 20 color options, suitable for all occasions. Unfortunately, strong demand for the X-Rap 10 has generated an inevitable price increase. Not everyone will want to pay 900-1000 rubles for one fish, especially among ordinary amateurs.

Advantages

  • strong alluring effect;

  • high efficiency when catching freshwater predators;

  • 20 different color options;

  • good flight component;

disadvantages

  • high price.

Yo-Zuri L Minnow 66

Rating: 4.7

YO-ZURI L-Minnow

When working on the next nominee for the rating, L Minnow 66, Yo-Zuri relied on the maximum similarity of the wobbler with real fry, for which, subsequently, it was rewarded with colossal revenue. These small minnow fish have created a real buzz among consumers who prefer to fish in fresh waters (for perches, chub, asp and pike).

With a length of 6.6 centimeters, the L Minnow 66 weighs 7 grams, due to which it has decent flight characteristics and allows you to fish from the coastline. The play of the plastic fish is intense even with uniform guidance, and therefore immediately attracts the attention of a cautious predator. Nevertheless, the wobbler shows the best results in terms of catch with twitching or a more 'light' version of the Stop & Go technique. And yet, the key advantage of the serial lure is its excellent handling – the best among all the wobblers present here.

Advantages

  • ample opportunities for catching the area (snags, grassy and rocky locations);

  • a good assortment of colors;

  • good flight data for shore fishing;

  • excellent catchability;

disadvantages

  • overpriced in online stores.

Jackall Smash Minnow 110 SP

Rating: 4.6

Jackall Smash Minnow 110 SP

A wobbler that can seriously compete with Yo-Zuri L Minnow 66 in terms of external resemblance to real fish fry. Despite some conservatism in the selection of colors (there are only 6 of them at the disposal of the model), Smash Minnow remains in demand for fishing in any water bodies, literally forcing predators to attack themselves. The original balancing allows the wobbler to carry out pronounced lateral movements, as if swinging from side to side during wiring. It is this fact that determines the immediate response of large river inhabitants (mainly pike and pike perch) to an unintentionally expressive fish. With a length of 11 centimeters, its weight is as much as 19 grams, which has a positive effect on the possibilities of fishing from the shore. But the deepening horizon a little let down: Smash Minnow goes under water by no more than 80 centimeters, losing somewhat in a potentially even higher level of catchability.

Advantages

  • phenomenal catchability of pike on small rivers;

  • adaptation to natural colors;

  • good weight indicators, making it possible to fish from the coastline;

  • very accurate imitation of fry;

disadvantages

  • high retail price;

  • limited in harvested reservoirs (due to the narrow horizon of work).

Salmo Perch 140 SDR

Rating: 4.5

Salmo Perch 140 SDR

Another representative of the legendary series of pike wobblers, which have been in circulation on the market since 1992. It is very popular with both professionals and newly minted anglers, because it has an extremely predictable behavior in the water and stable luring abilities. For more than 25 years of use, anglers have managed to learn all the habits of a 14-centimeter wobbler, using them to improve fishing efficiency. The key feature of the Salmo Perch 140 SDR is its significant depth depth, which varies widely within 5-12 meters and allows pulling from the depths of the bass, trophy pike, zander (including yellowfin), and large perch.

In terms of color options, the catchy wobbler can boast a very wide variety, especially in comparison with 'conservative' lures. The Perch 140 SDR has seen a steady fluctuation in value lately. However, this does not stop fishermen at all – the model continues to be actively sold and is clearly not going to give up the leading position in the Salmo product line.

Advantages

  • time-tested bait;

  • optimal balancing;

  • high resistance in fast flowing water bodies;

  • excellent depth indicators (depth range from 5 to 12 meters);

disadvantages

  • periodic fluctuations in the price of a wobbler.

Lucky Craft Pointer 100 SP

Rating: 4.4

Lucky Craft Pointer 100 SP

Pike wobbler featuring dynamic and powerful side-to-side sliding movements to more accurately simulate the yaw of real fry. With a 10 cm body and a mass of about 18 grams, the Lucky Craft Pointer 100 SP has excellent flight characteristics, allowing you to make ultra-long, high-precision casts. The working depth of the wobbler has modest ranges (1.2-1.5 meters), but it is on this horizon that the pike attacks the fish most willingly.

An important advantage of Lucky Craft Pointer 100 SP is the widest range of colors, covering absolutely all niches in terms of fishing conditions. Objectively, this is one of the best pike lures at the moment, popular with anglers around the world.

Advantages

  • a huge selection of colors;

  • high popularity among users;

  • the ability to perform long (and accurate) casts;

  • relatively low cost;

disadvantages

  • not found.
