The Niiyama Lures "Red Rover" is a near exact replica of the native Hawaiian species, also known as the "Emmelichthys karnellai." If you compare this head to his famous "Opelu" model, the Red Rover has much more curvature and roundness to it. The size of the head is also quite a bit bigger than the 9" Opelu, so both size and shape are different - this lure is more of a 9"+ or 12" sized head. Perfect size for large Ahi Tuna, Marlin, and Ono/Wahoo.
Each head is belly weighted for perfect balancing. They can be trolled in any position but is particularly lethal from the stinger/center rigger position. Can also be trolled in any sea condition - flat or rough waters. Swimming action is a little side to side wiggle but is more of a straight runner, similar to your typical bullet shape.
The custom paint work on these heads in combination with their design makes them pure works of art. Has a red/orange back and body that turns to a light red/pink tinted belly with more defined red fins. Gorgeous head color with an extremely realistic look. Again, these must be seen to be believed. Truly amazing design.
