I-Motion Techniquewho has tried this?

Now when I got the shad/jighead combo I admittedly expected a LITTLE action from the bait, very subtle but maybe something...they run STRAIGHT.
So to shorten it...I have caught quite a few fish in the only week or so I've had this tackle BUT none on this straight retrieve...I've danced it and bounced it off the bottom and it has INCREDIBLE action this way...I saw the ICast video of jackall president or owner speaking about fishing it different ways so just wondering if anyone's caught fish STRAIGHT retrieve?

as far as catching on a straight retrieve uhm maybe a few not nearly as many a twitching it i think more pike then anything and that's after doing the twitch and the last few feet before the bank just bringing it in straight and they grab it last second.

I haven't tried the " I-Motion " technique,but I have tried the I-Shad. Works really well using a technique called bottom bugging. Pretty much you just reel the bait slow and steady on the bottom. Definitely gets bit, but not so durable. One, maybe two fish per bait. The I-Motion technique sounds like a killer for dock fishing though.
I noticed this as well but some times I would have 1bait last several like more then 10 fish then others would get ripped off from just hits never even hooking a fish and of course the pike destroyed it. I started using the baby or mini zoom super fluke jr what ever there name is the smallest ones available. They held up slightly better and yielded same results they caught me alot of fish.
Also I might add that on a day I was all out of good baits for it and had a pile of baits with the nose ripped up I started to experiment with side hooking it like threw a flap on a super fluke it slowed the fall rate and kinda i mean kinda shimmied down like a senko it got bites it definitely got bit but it was like a 1 maybe 2 fish catch per bait then they were pretty useless. I tried tail hooking it as well got a few but not many bites and it would rip off coming threw brush or thick grass.
