The Evergreen International OB-68 is Morizo Shimizu's secret popper, and it's about to be yours. The OB-68 is a culmination of all the skill and expertise that Shimizu expects from his popper, and Shimizu reaches for it not because he wants to fish on a topwater bait, but because the fish only respond to a topwater bait. The body, which is designed with its tail flipped up, reduces air resistance, cuts through head winds, and casts long distances to search a wider area. It has increased control due to better weight distribution and body balance. Furthermore, the three fish-appealing features that Shimizu seeks from a popper spit, bubble and pop are all achieved at a higher level.
With a body balance that responds sensitively to rod work, it can handle with ease a variety of challenges, from slow action by standing trees or rocks, replicating high-speed action of a bait chased by backwaters, and turning action within a narrow traveling range to high-speed twitches. Hybrid rattles in four different materials tungsten, brass, steel and glass produce sounds in different frequencies, giving you a wider appeal to fish under various conditions. Pick the best spray, bubble, action, pop or rattle sound that best suits the conditions of the day to build your most effective game plan. Pretty soon you'll be calling Evergreen International's OB-68 your secret popper.
