The Ocean Angler Cyclops V2 sliding head design enables it to be attached to a Z-man soft-bait, Jelly Babies assist rig, or more standard Slider/Coin Drop assist rig, then dropping the Cyclops to where the fish are holding. At this point the unique Cyclops’ head shape performs it’s little bit of magic, enticing a wide variety of predators into biting.
- Free-sliding head, enabling trailing products to be presented away from the lead-head if desired.
- Lumo colour option for better visibility in deep water.
- A strong, rust-resistant hook in two sizes that suit the most popular Z-Man sizes; snapper, kingfish and kahawai are especially well catered for.

On-the-water tips: Choose the hook size to match the Z-Man soft-bait size as previously outlined; the weight is determined by the depth of water, the current/wind, and the size of the soft-bait. If in doubt, go heavy in this instance. Either drop the Cyclops straight down, or cast it well out ahead of the drift, then allow the Cyclops to sink to the bottom. The lure may hold up in the water during descent, causing the leader to be pulled through the sliding head. If you want the two components to remain a single unit, stop the descent every now and then until you feel the clunk as the two meet up again. Once on the bottom, decide whether you want to do a slow mechanical jig upwards or simply lift and drop it ‘yo-yo style. Or mix the two techniques together; even dragging will work at times.
