Default Japanese baits

So if you had a friend, who fishes, in Japan and he emails you asking you what baits should he look for and find, what brands or baits would you ask him to find???? Magabass? Diawa? Lucky Craft? Or something a little less known in the US like Dardo, Gan Craft, or Madness?

I want a bag of Bait Breath brand finesse worms and some of these

(watch the video) kind of a weird blend of Helicopter lure marketing crossed with possible genious? Either way I can see my local bass going nuts for the action.

Deps Basirisky soft crawler sizes 70 and 60 as the micro is still made.
I pay a chinese guy to mug jap pros to get them,have their own lil duty import stamp,yes used,still cost an arm and a leg best colors for me angola python,bubblegum pink and black.
Basically a discontinued bait replaced with the hard belly,a single hook frog that one has to use a learned hookset in order to hookup and if i told ya would have to kill you.Just kidding most wont follow the procedure,fish takes you dont respond look what direction it went point rod that way reel up set hook works every time,like count one thousand one,two then three then set hook,anything else load the rod up prior no fish in boat.

I'll see about the DEPS baits but they make some big money baits. He doesn't live in Japan but goes there every year or so on business. Didn't have time to search the last trip but surprised me with an email saying he was hunting and what should he pick up. Couple years ago he picked up two Scorpion reels for $65 ea. Didn't have cash to buy more and was unhappy when he found out what they sold for here. Just wanted to see what others might be looking at. I gave him a couple ideas. He'll be back this week and I can't wait to see what he comes back with.

He should be able to pick up the deps soft crawler for about 15 bucks used,over there,or even less.Sizes 70 and 60 only.Its more or less a single hook frog that is discontinued,and an action that cannot be duplicated by either its replacement in the lineup or copies.It has only a small following here due to its unique hookset req,and the reason it was dropped or replaced.
Without knowing or knowing and obeying it has a 5 percent or less hookup ratio,knowing it and obeying over 90 percent.With seldom one that jumps and tosses the lure as hooked back in corner or rear of jaw,with lure totally inside of fish.
They bring 16-30 bucks on ebay depending upon condition and 8=9 bucks shipping as to cost here.
35 or more for the micro 50 but that is still made,never have caught much on a micro dont know why.
A size 70 splashing poping and swimming as it does all that will bring out the 6-7 pders,v wake coming at the bait.
