Savage Gear is delivering yet another ultra-realistic lure for saltwater anglers, this time delivering an exquisite imitation of a live shrimp with the introduction of its Manic Shrimp V2. Often called “the chicken of the sea,” the shrimp is renowned as a favorite snack for all saltwater and brackish water predators. Through extensive studying of this popular crustacean, the Manic Shrimp V2 has mastered its journey toward excellence, becoming an exceptional go-to soft lure driven by intense testing and years of experience. Now, anglers can confidently pursue trophies in uncharted waters, knowing the Manic Shrimp V2 is fully equipped to land any fish.
The Savage Gear Manic Shrimp V2, an ultra-realistic soft lure, comes in two models, Ready to Fish, with three sinking and two slow-sinking sizes, and Weedless, with two slow-sinking sizes. This legendary soft lure has undergone meticulous evolution to achieve realistic movement and a look that guarantees better action to entice even the most skeptical predators. The Manic Shrimp V2 features an exposed hook configuration, is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, and irresistibly imitates an actual shrimp, luring even the most elusive predators. With 3D scans of an actual shrimp, every aspect of this lure displays a lifelike appearance and movement. From ultra-realistic body contours, including legs and whiskers, to a specially designed tail delivering a true-to-life kicking action, the Manic Shrimp V2 provides the ultimate shrimp presentation, capable of deceiving even the most discerning fish. In addition to hyper-realistic design and fantastic action, the Savage Gear team has perfected the sink rates for this lure.
“We learned that the buoyancy and thickness of the leader, as well as the salinity of the water, are all factors with a major impact on the sink rate of a lure,” said Adam Ott, product manager for Savage Gear. “It took meticulous testing and six iterations before we got the sink rate on the sinking and the slow-sinking Manic Shrimp, respectively, right. We learned how important this factor is to trigger the bite from several species.”
The lure’s custom Toughtec soft plastic body can withstand rigorous all-day fishing conditions, ensuring it remains in top form all season long. To enhance its allure, the Manic Shrimp V2 further entices fish to strike with its infused scent, ensuring they won’t let go once they bite. The Savage Gear Manic Shrimp V2 is also rigged with a weighted ultra-sharp jig hook for an optimal presentation and hook-setting capability.
Whether wading, kayaking, or bushwhacking through untraversed waters in search of bigger fish, the Manic Shrimp V2 will excel in the most challenging fishing environments and entice large predators lurking beneath the surface.
