Ever Green ZR-4 CrankbaitEver Green ZR-4 Crankbait

Ever Green has introduced the ZR-4 crankbait, engineered by Japan’s most advanced lure makers.

Outwardly, you’ll first notice the bait’s profile emulates the shape of baitfish and edible juvenile fish worldwide. To that, Ever Green sculpted the body with detailed eyeballs, scale patterns, and gills.

The ZR-4 features a hybrid square and concave bill. The squaring elicits a tight action that also deflects off structure like timber and rocks. The curvature displaces more water than a traditional bill, causing more disruption in the water and a faster dive to its prescribed 4-to-5-foot range.

The ZR-4’s unique bumped head and tapered tail were also orchestrated for an exclusive and precise action.

ZR-4’s color patterns are equally sophisticated. On the Green Pumpkin Gill, for example, airbrushed colors layer into one another, precisely as they’d appear on the real thing. Ever Green’s ten-color palette includes classic bass-catching hues as well as novel combinations. Patterns include Olive Crawdad, Glow Shad Dazzler, Flash Wakasagi, Magic Gill, Green Pumpkin Gill, Citrus Chart, Cold Shad and Olive Copper Shad.

Ever Green also includes fixed weights inside the ZR-4’s body to lower the center of gravity. The result is a longer-and-straighter-casting crankbait that tracks in perfect position on the retrieve. Finally, the ZR-4 includes an offset hook on the front treble to prevent snags.
