The Niiyama Lures Aku/Skipjack is a brand new head shape just released in late 2018. This 9" Version was first released in late 2019 - These are are very uniquely handmade and hand-painted one by one and therefore no one Aku head is 100% like the other. Very heavy for its size at around 7oz with 9" skirt saddles, so these lures will handle even the roughest of sea conditions. Has the profile of a bullet shaped head, so it swims very straight. Each head is belly weighted for perfect balancing.
The custom paint work on these heads in combination with their design makes them pure works of art. Has a black/purple iridescent back with a silver belly and the all-too-familiar Skipjack stripes. Truly amazing work. Photos do not do this lure justice.
This lure is skirted in Flashabou in purple (Color #6966)/white (Color #6905) over blue (Color #6964)/ice blue (Color #6963) by our Flashabou Specialist Hanna Drake out of Kona, Hawaii.
