|Super deep diver
One of the deepest lures in its class. Still uses laser-cut polycarbonate bib and omega wire clip, rather than moulded bibs in other 65mm Boomerangs.
Considering its very specialised application (deep trolling) the B65UD is a volume seller with interest on the increase.
A mid-summer special when impoundment fish are holding deeper.
An unusual lure because, despite the huge bib, it doesn't have a heavy throbbing action.
Rather it swims with a tight wobble that allows it to dig deeper than heavy actioned lures.
Heavy action lures shed water pressure to the sides at the extremes of their sideways wobble. In contrast, the B65UD resists sideways movement and can only do one thing to compensate go down.
"The first lure in the water in any impoundment and the most common thing on the end of my line. The definitive small bodied deep diving lure. Gets down past 7 metres on 12lb braid and habitually catches all of our temperate and tropical impoundment targets." - Neil Schultz, "Fishing World Magazine"
