The Silent Killer series is released since 2004. Four sizes are available; 250, 175, 145, and 115 (release in 2021). Still selling today the S-action “Slide Swimmer” and the 2009 members’ limited “Stinger Back”.
The staff developing the 2021 members’ item paid attention to this Silent Killer series, and mad a test model without the soft shell – the most notable point.
In the first step, it was a 145 sized body with a prototype lip and an 8 inches Sakamata Shad tail.
Looks like just attached several parts. But this proto-lure finished by a developer that perfected the technique over many years, passed most of the action tests at this point. So it officially started to improve as a product.
In the second step, the 145 sized core body becomes sophisticated. Starts its expression as an original lure.
The lip’s minor adjustments continued. There are many versions besides this photo.
Adjusting the line eye and hook eye position.
The Sakamata Shad tail is finalizing.
In this step, we know that the lip and tail, likely to damage, are designed to be replaceable.
Finally the lure has its face mold that brought to life.
