Minnow With Lip and Lipless

With Lip: HKTM85

Lipless: HRTM135A

I would like to write about the difference between lip and lipless.

What do users choose to do?
I will write it in the sense of supplementing the knowledge for the part.

In the first place, the purpose of the lip is to provide a regular fluctuation of water resistance.
Of course, not all things that move regularly, such as vibration and shinpen.
These are swaying from side to side due to the vortex created behind them.

It vibrates by flowing in the direction of the short side, and swings like a thin pen by flowing in the direction of the long side.

If you don’t use a clear difference in specific gravity to make it shake finely, it will be difficult to swim as intended. It is very difficult to make.
Should it be made with a lip or a body with a lip? That’s where the difference comes in.

・Big difference between the two

The lipless system basically flows the water scratched by the lip to the body side, so it is difficult to make it regular.
Basically, it is pulled by the vortex that is created behind, so even if you say lipless, there are many products on the market today that are very close to lipped.

In terms of content, the lip itself is a single lip, and the space behind it is the key to stabilizing power. There are many things.

Where do you judge that boundary? Even that part is vague at the moment.
If the manufacturer says that the integrated lure is lipless, it must be said that it is lipless in a sense.

The advantage of ripless is that the normal casting distance is long.
For the stability of swimming, it protrudes a little from the body line, but it is much less than with a lip.
Therefore, it is difficult to rotate and it is easy to fly a long distance.

But there are also disadvantages. In order to stabilize the swim, it is easy to need a weight on the front side.
If the hook is too big, it will not swim depending on the object.
In that case, the flight distance will not be as good as expected.
In addition, the body interferes with the webbing of the lips, so it becomes slimy, but it is difficult to swim briskly.
If you pull it slowly, it will become a lure like a stick.

On the other hand, with a lip, there are advantages such as fine movement, high infiltration ability, and the ability to handle large sizes even if the hook size is changed.

I think that a lip with a lip is better than a lipless if it means fishing with a swimming thing.

From the builder’s point of view, it has the advantage that it is easy to achieve the quality of movement, and it is easy to swim with a certain amount of patience even when chewing bubbles.
Of course, I think that the fluctuation at slow speed is quite good. As for the flight distance, you can swim even if you lower the weight to some extent, so as long as the lip is not too high, it will be easy to fly.

I think that it is easy to set a wide range of center of gravity movement compared to lipless, which tends to sacrifice the start of swimming, and it is possible to create effective center of gravity movement.
Also, if you make it with a buoyant body such as foam or wood, you can make a fine pitch.

If you use a lot of twitch or jerk with a high foothold such as blackfin seabass or seabass, it is easier to use a lip with a lip, and if you only have a low foothold, retrieve or silhouette, I think that the lipless is good.

When you go to the site, lipless is good and lipped is good, but basically I would like you to consider that there are these advantages and disadvantages.

Lipless for basic shallow use.
If you use it in jerk or rough sea, I think that if it is the same size, it will have a lip.
