Good Action in Swimming
December 21, 2016
Swims exactly like in the promo videos, but i haven't caught any fish on it yet. I need to try it more in several conditions before i can really evaluate it.
Not what I'd hoped for

I have quite a few of the original wax wing lures from the baby to the daddy size in multiple colors and love them all. Recently found a suspending version and bought it without hesitation. Long story short I was disappointed after using it. You're forced to retrieve it super slow otherwise it will hydro plane. I hoped it would work at least a foot below the surface instead of an inch or two. For me this lure would be Useful in shallow conditions only.
Cast and Reel
March 18, 2016
Awesome bait. Super easy to work. Just cast and reel. Great action and does suspend with fluorocarbon. I tried it on a reel spooled with mono and it slowly rise, but not fast enough to look unnatural. Erratically darts when you reel. No need to twitch the rod. Great for feeding frenzies or with the right line choice can be worked fairly slow with pauses in your retrieve. Hooks are decent, but definitely will be upgrading as they loose the point fairly quick.
ProsEasy to retrieve. Casts far. Good action.
ConsExpensive for a simple bait. Natural freshwater color choices are limited. Hooks loose point quickly.
Awesome Hybrid Lure

We used this model jig in Costa Rica and had excellent results. It is an excellent bait for tuna fish species. I recommend with confidence.

Your company is great to buy from. I have gotten items in the past for my grandson and everything was perfect. I just bought him 3 new lures and one of them the paint was chipped. He called and they are sending a new one with a return envelope for the damaged one. The order is on the way and he only called today. A Shimano sweatshirt that was out of stock was ordered by one of the employees for me and send directly to me. The staff and products are nothing but great.
ProsGreat products and service.
ConsNothing to complain about.

VERY ATTRACTIVE FOR FISH BY ITS SWIMMING ZEG ZAG PATTERN AND SOUND
Atlantic City, New Jersey
August 18, 2014
Fished the Blue Sardine this weekend for about 1 1/2 hours and got 5 Bluefish. They seemed to like it best after I paused the retrieve and twitched the rod. The side to side action looked great. Can't wait to try it on Stripers!
Tasty Little Offering.

I remember One day we were out and the Bluefin weren't interested in any lure, skirt or even live bait larger than 3 inches? We were wondering why until we opened up one we had caught and it was full of little 2 inch saltwater baitfish. As we only had about 2 xtra sml lures we tried cutting a few skirts shorter but all that done was ruin a few good lures. As I was scrounging through the bottom of my tackle box I found 2 small Shimano Waxwings in the Sardine colour that I had purchased by mistake and had put them in the dark section of my tackle box, As soon as I let out enough line we started a slow troll I had the rod pointed down and on the gear I was using couldn't feel any lure action, I though Here We Go Again, Until WHACK.... WHACH..... BANG. It was ON, that was the first of 23 or so for the rest of our day out 8 hours of great fishing, 20 of them were released, These lures are always on standby in case of bait sizes being different or the fish just not wanting a larger lure. They are a very useful lure indeed.

What are the hooks and how many are there on the Junior suspending waxwing?
There are two treble hooks on that lure. They appear to be 1/0 or 1 in size.
on October 12, 2015
Shimano's response is... they are VMC treble hooks and on the junior (4.6"/1.25oz) they are size 2 (2/0).
