One of our favorite tackle manufacturers out of Japan is Megabass. This year we’ve some very interesting and innovative designs from them. We don’t use the “i” words loosely. We think those words get overused by folks just making their versions of baits that already exist. But it’s not the case from what we’ve seen coming down the pike from Megabass.
The first bait that wowed us this year was the Vision 110 FX. They really changed the jerkbait market with their weight-transfer jerkbait the Ito Vision 110. The new 110 FX has a lip that actually collapses and makes the bait even more aerodynamic on a cast allowing for greater distance and opened up applications. The lip then jumps back into place on a the jerk. Very cool and a lot of thought and engineering went into this design.
