Daiwa Shoreline Shiners
Welcome to the wonderful world of Daiwa Shoreline Shiners. In this article we will attempt to explain how to understand the difference between variations and sizing, along with some of the lettering you might notice printed on the lures or packaging. For the large majority of lure anglers you are already going to be familiar with the legendary and now discontinued “R50 SSR”. A slim lure that casts like a missile with a shallow swim depth, a perfect choice for any shallow ground.
To start we will take a look at the known models – R series, SL series, LH series, Vertice series and lastly the Set Upper series.
R Series – Comes in several sizes with at least two different bibs. With the R series this will be followed by two numbers which relate to the size of the lure. 55= 140mm, 50= 120mm and 40 =95mm. This range comes in floating and sinking variants.
SL Series – The sizing ID number change for this series, again they will relate to the first numbers printed on the lure. 12 = 120mm, 14 = 140mm and 17 = 170mm. Just to confuse us there is also a different size scaling listed within this range at 125mm and 145mm. This series of lures is available in floating and sinking versions.
LH Series – As with the SL range two different sizing ID’s can be found printed on the lures, 15 & 150 both at 150mm. From the information gathered this range has two hook hangers unlike the traditional three hangers found on the other lures at similar sizes within Daiwa Shoreline Shiner models.
Vertice Series – This series of lures carries the greater variety in size, weight and swim depth. All are listed with a nice easy understanding of size being millimetres throughout the series. Again, you will find this printed on the lure directly after the Vertice wording. This series has number of different bibs options depending on the swim depth. Available in both floating and sinking variants.
Set Upper Series – Again the sizing is easy to understand within this series with the length being in millimetres. The Set Upper lures seem to be manufactured with a larger bib for deep diving and would appear to all be sinking lures.
Abbreviations – These you will find throughout the range, we still have some that can’t be identified (Z, R, G). Feel free to contact us if you know what they are.
