Why are my Japan bought vision 110's different?

I bought 5 MB vision 110's from Japan and while inspecting them, I immediately noticed that they are missing the line tie split ring and the center treble does not have any barbs. Can anyone confirm that this is correct? Other wise, they are 100% good.

I recently bought two baits in a JDM color from an e-tailer online. Neither came with a split ring on the nose. I double checked their image of that bait/color on the site and it doesn't show a split ring on the nose.

I didn't notice if the middle hooks had barbs but I know on the original straight eye 110's from the early/mid 2000's that was how they came (no barbs on middle treble).

Ok, thanks for the info. I guess thats the way they fish them in Japan.

For what it's worth I've been fishing the 110's for probably 15 years and never had an issue with catch ratio on the no barb middle treble. I did once impale myself on that middle treble and was very very happy that it didn't have barbs :big grin:

I do always fish it with a split ring on the nose.

Haha. I was thinking the same. One less treble to stick you

I've purchased them from a couple local shops and they did not split rings. The center treble has no barbs. This is normal.

I've had this on all of the JDM OneTens I've purchased, whether in US shops (Who can order outside of Megabass USA) or through eBay. Also, if you get any of the first batch S-Crank 1.2s, they don't have any split rings on the nose either, leading me to believe they're part of the Japan release.
