The all new Shimano Armajoint 190SF Flash Boost Swimbaits solve the challenges of casting a big jointed swimbait in search of trophy fish. Lure engineers leverage Shimano's proprietary Arma-Boost technology to significantly increase casting distance and accuracy by reducing unnecessary air resistance and the chances of the lure spinning during flight. As the angler casts the lure, Arma Boost technology facilitates the lure to disconnect from an internal magnet and forces the body to fold into its compact shape. Once the lure hits the water, the lure's body reengages with the magnet to create a smooth and natural swimming action.
The Shimano Armajoint 190SF is a versatile lure that can be retrieved fast or slow, enabling anglers to vary their retrieve depending on the situation. The bait will normally swim in an S-pattern, but the bait will not flare out when stopped due to the fold in its body. Anglers can slow down the receive and pause the to capitalize on the lure's natural slow-rising action. ARMAJOINT also features Shimano's proprietary FLASH BOOST technology that constantly emits a fish-attracting flash during the retrieve — even on the pause — by suspending reflective foil on micro springs to mimic the flashing behavior of an injured baitfish. Designed with purpose by leveraging innovation and technology and improving angler performance while drawing strikes from tournament-winning bass.

- Arma Boost to increase a lure's casting distance by folding a jointed lure into a compact shape, reducing air resistance and minimizing the chances of the lure spinning during flight.
- Flash Boost suspends reflective foil on micro springs within the clear section of the lure body and provides an action designed to mimic the movements and flashing behavior of an injured baitfish.
- Scale Boost capitalizes on composite-pitch holograms to increase the amount and complexity of light reflected through the water.
I just got them and have not tried them on water. But they look nice in the box so far.
