Zappu's Tungsten PD Chopper:
Zappu, Japan's finest terminal tackle manufacturer has already brought
innovations like the Inchi Wacky to American anglers rabid for new ways to catch
heavily-pressured bass. Now, with the US introduction of the all-tungsten PD
Chopper, Zappu has raised the game when it comes to swimming-style jigheads.
Like all Zappu terminal tackle, the PD Chopper is made of 97% tungsten. Tungsten
is substantially more compact than lead, allowing it to slip through smaller
gaps, and its increased density provides even greater feel as the jigs bounce
off cover or when light-biting fish subtly engulf them.
The Zappu PD Chopper has a uniquely-shaped head with a rudder-like protruding
bottom. The real beauty of this bait is when an angler swims it back to the boat
steadily. The face pushes water and has an erratic, occasionally violent
side-to-side motion that "hunts" like the finest balsa crankbaits. The face of
the PD Chopper is relatively flat, pushing water out of the way as they barrel
forward. That flat design also allows them to stand straight up when allowed to
rest on the bottom. Viewed from the front, the head is widest at its approximate
mid-point and tapers down quickly toward the bottom to provide increased
vibration and their signature rolling actions.
