Individually hand painted, factory tuned and tank tested, the Freak, now equipped with E-Chip, is straight-line surface weaponry. A tunable double blade tail section churns water like an outboard motor. It’s irresistibly loud, thanks in part to our engineers who’ve designed the front hook to make periodic contact with the blades. Built torture-tough from a high-impact resin that fishes like Maple joined together by a rugged wire. The Freak is a proven threat when paralleling weedlines, emerging timber, and ripped over points or put on cruise control over submerged weed beds as deep as 15 feet. Fish it fast for a higher pitch, or slow for a deep, bass thumping action.
E-CHIP TRIGGERS STRIKES WITH VOLTAGE OUTPUT
The EChip is the world's first microchip for bait. It replicates the voltage discharged by the nervous system of live bait. Electro-Location is one method fish use to determine what and where to strike.
The five sensory systems fish utilize to feed include:
Sight: fish have good eyesight but don't see well in poor conditions or at close range. Cloudy water, dirty water and deep dark water inhibit sight.
Smell: important for some fish but scent trails are narrow and inaccurate for catching prey.
Sound: sounds travels fast in water but it is very inaccurate for predators at close range.
Vibration: critical for general attraction to a region but it is also inaccurate at close range.
Electro Sensitivity: critical for triggering strikes and enabling fish to exactly locate and strike their prey.
