Yo-Zuri Hardcore NOI-Z Wakebait and Crank Series

FLW Pro Circuit angler Spencer Shuffield tells Florida Sportsman executive editor Jeff Weakley that there are two new offerings from Yo-Zuri that take full casting distance advantage of the company's patented Magnetic Weight Transfer system. One of those new baits is the Hardcore NOI-Z wakebait, a hinged lure that uses a hard-knocking rattle, a rear prop and a feathered treble hook to draw ferocious strikes. The other is the redesigned Hardcore Crank 2+, 3+, and 4+ series, which can be cast a country mile, bounced off of cover, and retrieved silently to lure high-pressured bass into striking.
