easy casting lure with good swimming action
So easy to use and control the action! Shimano lures are the best! i would hope to have bigger sizes and heavier weight for GT casting.

Great top water action
I fish these every where I go from Mexico to Costa Rica and San Diego , I've had luck with bluefin , dorado and yellowtail under kelp patties These things just work ! I've had luck fishing these things at different retrieval speeds all with the same great results !
ProsFish will hit these things not so much the color but the nice swim pattern they have .
ConsPricey !

Looks aren't everyting
If I didn't know better, I would think this lure is a gimmick, but it really works! Took a couple of Waxwings on a recent 8-day trip out of San Diego. The yellowtail jumped all over them.

Lt eye feel
Love the action of the lure, made five cast from the surf on a Sandy Beach and the left eye fell off. Casts well for my 8 and a half foot IMX surf rod however a bit disappointed about the durability of the product.
ConsIf you're paying over $14 for a product that I should at least stay on for a season. Considering I was casting from a Sandy Beach everything should have stayed on and the construction of the lure should have held up for at least a season. I just wasn't expecting and I to fall off it after 5 casts

small but deadly
got this lure in black/silver, and it just looks like a little baitfish. It's small, but it is deadly if you cast it into a school of fish. It doesn't make a big splash in the water, because its such a small lure. But if you want to match the hatch.... this is one to have in your box! Great for inshore to! anything will eat this little guy
Prosgreat size range ideal for matching small baitfish nice colors solid lure/hooks

Awesome looking lure
I ordered the Blue Sardine waxwing, and it looks so good. Very real. It has some weight to it (2oz), so it will cast a good distance. Very sharp, quality (owner) hooks. Can't wait to try it shipping to Canada was super fast with DHL. Got here the next day for $20!! regular US mail shipping would have been $12, so very impressed with that.
Proslooks great solid construction quality hooks

This is my go to lure when fish are being picky
I absolutely love the Shimano Waxwing! I fish here in Hawaii and for the most part the water is clear and the fish are smart. The Shimano Waxwing Lure has become my go to lure when the fish are being picky. It has excellent action and draws the fish in and incites strikes. I usually use the larger waxwing lures because I am targeting larger fish (138 Sr. lure). However, as a testament to these lures effectiveness, in addition to the larger fish, I have also caught fish the same size as the lure while fishing.
ProsThe lure works
ConsThough it is cheaper than the lures that cost $120 each. The waxwing cost can add up when you are buying multiple lures.

most versatile size in the line up
Easy to work--bomb it out there, point your rod tip at it and begin reeling. Find the correct pace...too slow and fish lose interest (unless competing). Too fast and you induce spin-out. Once there, they crush it. Love artificials because the fish seem to hit it harder/ more aggressively. This particular size (and the next size up) is easier to fish faster than the smaller ones. I have a few that I'll replace as they get torn up, but I'd buy more if they were cheaper.
ProsGood action, easy to work. Casts well. Catches fish!
ConsA version that could be reeled faster would be great!

Big Daddy
Used for offshore casting instead of poppers around rigs and weedlines, decided to try this subsurface instead of a hard swimbait or stickbait. The swimming action is as easy as it gets, just reel it in! No Tuna or ono yet, but the kings, cuda, mahi, and jacks have all found it irresistible...not exactly an inexpensive lure, it now carries battle scars from the toothies. Because I fish a lot I have tried all sizes except the smallest--the Daddy and the Senior work the best because you can reel it in at a better pace without spin-out. Find that sweet spot...
ProsEasy to work, good action. Catches fish!
ConsPricey, if worked too fast, spins out.

WW Jr.
In general I like the waxwing jigs. I have several of the larger models. The 2.2 oz seems to work the best in my opinion, as far as actin goes. But here's the thing...they have a definitive sweet spot for retrieval speed. Too slow and the fish lose interest. Too fast and it spins out. Once you find that spot--it works great, hang on. In this particular size, it won't do what I need it to.
ProsCasts well, has a good action.
ConsWould like to see it as a countdown type lure to cover more of the water column. Pricey.

One of my favorite lures!
First and foremost, THIS THINGS CAST A MILE! I could not believe the distance I was casting these lure using a 7'6" rod. I use these on the surf and I can reach rolling Tarpon way out in the surf, I had two lines out with live mullet and the Tarpon were hitting this thing all day. The Mullet were never sniffed.
ProsCasts a mile, great action, catches fish!
ConsHurts when you loose one cause they are expensive but worth every penny.

Surprise Pez Gallo Slayer!
After a slow day surfcasting, and trying assorted surface/skipping lures, I put on a Waxwing Senior (Green Mackerel). It immediately created a frenzy with the ladyfish and then... BAM! a nice Roosterfish took the Waxwing and the fight was ON. This was the hot lure for the rest of the day. Caught my 2nd, and 3rd career Roosterfish from the "Lighthouse beach" at Las Arenas, Mexico.
ProsCasts well. Great subsurface action. Color selection excellent.
ConsSome missed bites/hook sets. Maybe a stinger at the "head"?

I hooked nice size Dorados with it in a few seconds. We came across a school of Dorados in the gulf last week, while my buddies where throughing live bait at the school and getting them hooked, I just through the Shimano Waxwing 118 bone and bam, hooked in few seconds. I love it, and I would always use it for the same situation. I am buying the rest of the sizes and different colors to share with my friends next time.

This lure is one of my favourite's as I used this lure on one of the best fishing days I have ever had. Nearly every cast I put out there I caught a fish. I would recommend this lure to anyone heading to the Halaniyat Islands in Southern Oman or anywhere there is big pelagic fish.

Shimano Waxwing
The movement that this lure has sets it appart from other lures which is a good thing. The body of the lure is of good quality and will take abuse from toothy fish (baracuda and mackeral) as well as your normal Snook / Redfish population.
ProsVery good movement Good color patterns Well made
ConsMakes no sound

Best lures last year!
So these came out (I think) late last year about the same time as the false albacore rush here in LIS. A couple of buddies brought them along when we went hunting for falsies. We caught 26 that day and the guys(2) that were fishing the waxwings out fished the two of us who weren't by a margin of 2 to 1. They just catch fish. This was proven over and over again when we were fishing for blues, stripers, even black fish later on as the season wound down. One day a guy caught 6 different species on the same lure!
ProsJust catches fish! Easy cast and retrieve.
ConsPricey and hard to find in stores!
