The Niiyama Lures Kawakawa is a brand new head just released in late 2019. Very limited numbers of these will be produced due to the time it takes to make each one - These are are very uniquely handmade and hand-painted one by one and therefore no one Kawakawa head is 100% like the other. These are Marlin and large Ahi/Tuna killers with an extremely thick and heavy head with 12" skirt saddles and just over 11 ounces in weight. These large lures will handle even the roughest of sea conditions and can be trolled at higher speseds. Has the profile of a bullet shaped head, so it swims very straight. Each head is belly weighted for perfect balancing. Recommend 500-700lb leader with no less than 300lb.
The head is the same shape and size as the Aku and Shibi head with only a different color pattern to mimic the "Kawakawa" or Mackerel Tuna.
The custom paint work on these heads in combination with their design makes them pure works of art. Has a black back with the black Mackerel stripes along the edges of the back followed by blue-silver tinted sides that gradually transitions to a silver belly with white with black spots patches along each side below the pectoral fins. Truly amazing work. Photos do not do this lure justice.
This lure is skirted in Flashabou in Black (Color #6960), Ice Blue(Color #6963), Pearl White (Color #6905), and Blue (Color #6964) by our new Flashabou Specialist Derin Goya out of Honolulu.
