Has anyone ever tried the Izumi Live Bait lures?

Here's the video that caught my attention to these baits.

I have fished with quite a lot of hard baits for large and smallmouth bass, and these would be killer. Any thought of using them here? Anyone know of any distributors?

Search bass lures and almost every store in the states will have something similar on offer.

I have a few of them I picked up in Aus about 2 years ago.
They weren't expensive, and I'm pretty sure I got them out of the specials bin...
To be honest I dont recall ever catching anything on them, but that is probably because I tend to have my "go to" lures, and havent given them enough time.
Great action though :y:
