Lifelike design


Again, the Tackle HD Mega Mite looks real. It has all sorts of little appendages and a couple small pinchers coming out of its head. I don’t know how important it is in reality to the fish, but I like that the pinchers kind of mask the weight of whatever you choose to rig the bait on. And roughly 3/4 of the bait has a segmented, almost ribbon-like look to it, which creates a nice action when swam through the water and dragged along bottom.

Once you get over the initial shock of the look of the bait, it’s refreshing to see someone try something different. Almost every soft-plastic company now has a finesse worm or ribbon tail worm. And while reinventing the wheel does produce a better bait at times, seeing Tackle HD break the figurative mold by casting a literal brand new one is commendable.
