The Z-1 delivers excellent stability in current and “bulldog contact,” relentlessly contacting bottom structure to trigger frenzied reaction bites. Powered by our patented LBO II balancer system, the Z-1 casts like a heavier plug, delivering unrivaled performance for its size. In the bitter winter, early spring, and during turnover periods, the Z-1’s hard-hitting approach displays surprising stability that allows it to continuously engage riprap and shallow contours. Furious deflections never compromise the Z-1’s high-pitch action, stimulating tough fish until they are compelled to bite. This next generation shallow runner is perfectly suited for attacking cruising fish around backwater sand bars, riprap, and shallow structures.
