The new Maria Duckdive F190 carries on from the success of the larger F230 model which is a Kingfish casting dedicated slim popper to attract Kingfish when they are not active and responding to diving pencils (Stickbait).
These days the popular fishing style for Kingfish is that the anglers use a pencil bait with a little sensitive tip rod.
Duckdive has a slim shape and has a small caliber cup so that the angler can operate it without changing tackle balance. (For example first we use Rapido F190and can change to Duckdive F190 with the same tackle
Although we tested it from a boat during development, you can use it from land based too.
When making the rod action, the posture of Duckdive will keep nearly level due to the weight moving system. After making rod action, the position of normal poppers are not stable. This irregular movement sometimes makes the fish caution. As soon as we make a rod action, the small cup receives the water pressure and generates attractive bubbles. In addition to making bubbles, the moving distance is suppressed due to the water resistance.
This means that we can trace the good spot as long as possible. The castability is almost as same as Rapido F190 due to the slim shape and weight moving system. ⇒There has been concept that Popper is difficult for us to cast far away.
