The Gunki LS Whiz Lures come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: soft lures for predator fishing.

Specifications: available in 2, 3 and 4 in. sizes; fry imitation finishes; oversized eyes; lifelike body shapes; long, shad tails; bodies have a slit along their backs, for Texas-style hooking arrangements; flavoured with shellfish attractant.

My verdict: these lures look like the real thing – fry and small prey fish. I like the big eyes and the more natural finishes in the range.

They look as if they will suit more static techniques, including drop shotting and jigging, as well as light set-ups, to allow their long tails to flick and vibrate when retrieved.

Their flanks flash in the water, too.

The Gunki team report that they work particularly well for perch and zander, I can certainly imagine them getting inhaled by a perch or two.

You get between five and 12 lure bodies in a pack, depending on their size.

Price: £5.49 a pack.
