2015: Q1 Lures Acquisition

Manage to get few "very-hard-to-get" lures. Thank you very much for those who involved. You know who you are.
p/s: Some comments are copied from Carpenter Australia site and Carpenter Japan website.

Native-Works: Napalm 200mm (90g), 220mm (120g) and 250mm (150g)
Very effective lures and without a doubt one of the most popular lure in the world at this moment. It is highly sought after and extremely hard to get as production runs are very few and far between. The finish is incredible. Beautiful hand crafted lures. Love with the action, with a generous sweep of the rod, the most amazing bubble trial is left behind, while the popper stays sub-surface and zig zags in the most erratic "s" pattern you will ever see. I partner it with EP and TBL series rods.
Abalone White and Abalone Blue finish

Blue Diamond  and Anemone Blue finish
Napalm action

Carpenter Bluefish BF-140, 137g, 224mm, hook size GT Recorder 5/0
I used EP series and TBL series rods for them. Easier to play than Gamma.
GT: EP82/38 ; EP86/40 R-P I ; KLL EP82/42 R-P I ; EP85/36 ; EP88/35 ; TBL80/40 ; TBL711/35
Pilot Fish and Dark blue back finish

Carpenter GT-γ(Gamma) 140H Mid Tuned
This is another supply of non-regular production model lures!
GT-Gamma 140H 'Mid Tuned' are newly tuned GT-Gamma to action between regular model and H model.
Easier to action than others in a range particularly when fishing from taller platform like front deck of game boat.
Bodies are from 4-5 years ago with aluminium finish instead of current hologram (that was what they used back then and we know many people still love them!). Using previously made materials and also for their research purpose. Available in two colours - blue silver and purple silver.  Recommended hooks: Gamakatsu GT Recorder 5/0.  I used EP82/42 and TBL 80/40 to get maximum action and bubble trails.
blue silver and purple silver finish

Carpenter DJ Anthias 2014
DJ Anthias is one of the first and successful lures Carpenter produced in company's early stage and has been continued to produce till early 2000s.
Original Anthias (without DJ) was popper designed for the situation when fish chase lures but doesn't bite and DJ Anthias was designed to dive deeper and create bigger splash with same concept.
DJ Anthias 120 size and balanced for using single hooks for anglers and charters who prefer to use singles. Recommended hooks are Owner SJ41 13/0 with Carpenter 250lb split rings or SJ41 11/0 with two Carpenter 250lb split rings.
Orange yellow and Blue green silver finish
