I believe Yozuri lures are quite common in tackle shops. I know hot spot or joe's tackle have them, but just to be sure you should give them (or any tackle shop) a call to find out. As for pond, you it depends what sort of fishes interests you, be it fresh or saltwater. I'm not into Pond fishing so I can't comment much. Maybe you can try Pasir Ris pond for saltwater and there's the recently opened freshwater fishing pond at Khatib.

I don't know of any 'whiplash' rod model from Shimano but I've heard of Berkley's whiplash. However, that's a braided line. Do you have a link/picture/specs on that rod?

I've not used this rod before, but from the specs it is a fast action rod for high sensitivity. The page also mention its ability to cast ultralight lures, this would be an advantage for luring or using flies on spin. It's best that you go down the tackle shop to have a feel of the rod, maybe you can check out Tan Thong Cheong since they're Shimano's main distributor.

The point of the 'jerking' the lure is to tease the fish, all you need is a flick of your wrist will do. The stroke should not big long, but rather short and fast. Many lures like minnows have a bead inside them, some you may even hear it when you're retrieving in water close to you. As you retrieve the lure, the bead will hit against the inner body as the lure waggles, sending out vibrations and sound. Vibration also generated from the body of the lure itself when you pull it against the water. Or are you referring another type of vibration?
