DAIWA SHORE SPARTAN BREAK THROUGH
Shooting chrome products is all about avoiding reflections, on flat surfaces is a lot easier compared to small round products like fishing lures. Understanding light direction and shaping it to suit is the main method, but also using shift or perspective control lenses help immensely. On small products you can place the camera to the side of the product and shift the lenses to align on the product. This avoids camera/lens reflection, also there’s a lot of other tricks to lighting it correctly, but that’s purely years of experience and understanding light.
Break Through is the sinking stickbait of the Shore Spartan range. As with all Shore Spartan baits, the unique dimpled side is the first thing to notice. This dimpled design not only acts like a golf ball through the air, aiding the lure to track straight and true, it also aids the baits motion subsurface, allowing the Break Through to be retrieved faster than comparable baits without breaking the waters’ surface, a key trait for targeting high speed pelagics.
The Break Through also features an incredibly low centre of gravity, with all the lures weight being placed as low as possible in the extra thick 1.8mm ABS body. Available in both a 120mm and 140mm size, the Break Through comes rigged with either #2 or #2/0 HD treble hooks so they are ready to fish straight out of the package.
