EGILEE DARTMAX is a completely new generation of squid lures, incorporating a dart action. By moving the line-eye up from the standard front position to above the lures head, has created its unique dart action possible with only light rod action needed. Moving the eye-line has also stabilised its fall, and reduced the chance of snagging on the bottom. The lures head has also been shaped down to reduce drag in the water and the body shape gives it a sharp highly controllable dart action. Also it keeps the perfect posture in the water during falling when bites are most likely to come, due to the buoyancy in the rear of the lure. A new body colour range and hologram head, greatly increases the lures appeal, with EGILEE's special snag-less coloured sinker to prevent lost chances caused by snags. With hooking in mind, EGILEE has kept its popular custom carbon hook material. EGILEE's new advanced model range opens up a whole new fishing area.

A new range of UV Reactant coated lures has been added to the unique darting action DARTMAX squid jig lineup. In deep areas and low light conditions such as early morning or cloudy water standard lure colours can blend in to the surrounding environment. However the UV Reactant coated lures reflect UV light which penetrates deep into the water. This makes the base colour stand out more for improved appeal to squid in the area. N.B.

The "MAJO CLOTH" lineup features a unique material that changes colour depending on the viewing angle. The chrome finish and specially processed MAJO CLOTH reflect ultra violet light, for a strong appeal that attracts and entices squid.
