Review Molix Millerighe EVO, Vintage
The Millerighe are Egis that have reached more and more anglers who practice spinning and catch the cephalopods, both from the shore and from the boat. Personally, I have always used them, achieving remarkable fishmongers from the shore and catching big cephalopods, both squid and cuttlefish. At the moment there are two types of Egis; EVO and Vintage. The Evo are differentiated by the use of the Keimura fabrics. The Vintage instead resume the combination of colors between the shell and the fabrics that have made the history of the eging.
General features: the Millerighe is a shaped Egi, aesthetically incorporates the carapace of a shrimp with a catchy line. The coating is extremely resistant to the cephalopod bites and it is obtained using high quality fabrics; Keimura in the series “EVO” is characterized by the ability to reflect the UV rays that can reach the deeper layers of water.The colors, obtained through the combination of the shell and the fabrics, are varied, for all tastes and uses, according to the conditions of the light and the water; translucent, glow, realistic, and rich in the color contrasts. All colors also have special glows, the bands before the baskets or the glow border of the eyes; which increases its attractiveness.The slender shape, compact and the perfect balance help to cast the egis at long distances, essential if you are fishing from the coast, to “hit” more water.
The basket: the basket used for both the series is wide and it guarantees safe and precise hooks settings, reducing the possibility to loose the fish during the retrieval. The needles mounted staggered between the two baskets are extremely thin and sharp and they are made of carbon and treated with a special anti-rust product that improves its resistance. This feature also greatly improves the trim in the water. The lure is very balanced while it is sinking, in the stop position on the bottom and it is reactive to the jerks.
When to use a millerighe?
This is a question that can be taken for granted but there is a basic and technical answer that turns out to be scientific for those who devote much of their time in practicing eging.
The millerighe, both the 2.5 version and above all the 3.0 size, are lures that stand out for the long castings. It is clear that this characteristic represents an extra gear in the case of the side wind or even worse frontal wind. This allows us to fishing in optimal conditions and to reach wanted distances in favorable conditions.
The distance in the cephalopod spinning can be providential. In many spots the squid hunt far from the shore and this may represent a strategic advantage. The same is for the cuttlefish, the more water we have to fathom, the easier it is to intercept more cephalopods.
The Millerighe do not fear the current at all, rather they manage it optimally allowing you to not to lose contact with the bottom or the water layer of our interest. The Millerighe represent the right compromise between the shallow and deep modes; they reach the bottom at the right speed in relation to the conditions, resulting extremely versatile. This feature allows to easily reach the desired water layer in case of previous strikes in the same point. The spots exposed to sea currents, represent the ideal habitat of the cephalopods.
My experience leads me to say that the Millerighe, not by chance are the most used and capturing egi in the Strait of Messina, where I live. A highly complicated stretch of sea because of the impetuous currents. Personally I have never given up their use, indeed for those who attend deep and challenging spots they certainly represent an extra gear, in many cases the real secret to collect unexpected chores.
