DEPS SLIDE SWIMMER 175
The Slide Swimmer 175 is a large, hard plastic swimbait designed to mimic large forage species such as trout, hitch and shad when targeting bass. The 7" Deps Slide Swimmer 175 displays the "glide" style action that has become incredibly popular over the past couple of years.
Much of the bait's effectiveness has been attributed to its' completely silent nature and even the hinges of the jointed-body are precision engineered not to make a sound.
The bait's body is constructed from an ABS plastic injection molding process in contrast to the original foam used for the 250.
Outside, the bait is covered with a soft silicone skin and swims completely on its own free of any diving lip, also boasts an astounding level of detail, including accurate color finishes, 3D eyes and is finished with life-like scale patterns and gills.
Deps is one of the most popular bass fishing companies in all of Japan and with creations like the Slide Swimmer 175, they're starting to become a household name stateside as well.

Made out of ABS Plastic
Features soft silicon skin
The 175 will use Jointed 8 Rings to connect the bodies and for eye ties. This will aid in strength for a shorter sized bait.
The Silicon Skin will still be removable and the weights will still be on the outside of the body allowing for easy modification. The slide swimmers come standard with a Rate of Fall of about 5 feet per 10 seconds. Adding weight or taking away weight can be done with the new models.
Color line up options increases. The clear ABS plastic allows for ghost & clear coloring patterns. The original colors to date will also be available.
A Spring Weight is added to front body. With a slow steady retrieve the spring weight does not emit any sounds just like the original, but when the bait is jerked or fished with a faster retrieve the weighted ball bounces off of the walls of the bait producing fish enticing sounds and there is also a slight vibration as the bait falls.
