The Roman Made Negotiator is a smaller version of the Mother Swimbait that Manabu Kurita used to catch the previous Lake Biwa record bass - prior to catching his world record-tying beast. The Negotiator channels the magic of the original Mother swimbait, and its smaller size allows it to attract more bites, while still appealing to trophy-sized bass. Roman Made is well known in Japan as the premier big bait manufacturer. Extremely difficult to find in the US, each Roman Made bait is a work-of-art - handmade and hand-tuned, one-by-one near Lake Biwa in Japan. Available while supplies last, the Roman Made Negotiator Swimbait is a beautifully crafted swimbait with an unparalleled track record.
Comments: I watched my friend throw the 5004 mother and i could not belive the fish that came up yo it RIGHT when it hit the water and followed it allll the wat to the boat! didnt get a giant largie to comit on it but we seen 4-7lb spotted bass get in a trance over it on a really really hartd day... so that brings me here to TW and now im buying the NEGOTIATOR just because of that! i would get the Roman Made but its a BIT $$$ for me....

Comments: I have the negotiator custom (one with top hooks) and the bait is frickn fantastic,I can easily say that no other bait in my collection comes close. And I have swimbaits from every major u.s and jdm maker both big name and the garage built. The custom style of this bait is so stealth and quiet in the water and virtually weed less. I also love how the hooks deploy once a fish is on so that way it can't use the lure to throw the hooks and come off.the action is in a class itself,it's one of the very very few baits that when you kill it it doesn't ball or bunch up it just glides forward with the current or simply glides down to the bottom like a real fish would. Simply put these r amazing.
