2. Patent pending “Self Tuning Tie” technology which will keep the action of the lure constant. This will allow more consistent and continuous fishing.


3. The lip of these lures are called circuit board lips that is said to induce action at very low speeds and also allow the lure to reach maximum depth very quickly.


There are three types of lures to look out for from these series so far. The models are:

1. Storm Arashi Silent Square


2. Storm Arashi Rattling Flat



3. Storm Arashi Rattling Deep
