  MEGABASS  

SuWITCH (Available now!👉 Here)

Although it's unvailed last year, Megabass brand new SuWITCH has not been released until now. It's a wakebait which has valiable swimming actions. Although some people point out that it's like a Jackall Mikey, concept of SuWITCH is different. As "Su" means 4 in Chinese, anglers can choose 4 types of swimming action in one lure. The key feature is its removable lip. Megabass is designed two types of lip which can be mounted at two angles.

MAGDRAFT AYU TWITCHER

Magdraft AYU is specially designed for Japanese anglers according to Megabass web site. Current Magdraft series is great, but it's not for rapid stream which Japanese rivers have. In contrast, brand-new Magdraft Ayu swims very well in rapid stream. Besides, it can achieve an extremely slow retrieve that works for light-feeling fish .

LIVE-X LBO(Avialble now!👉 Here)

The LIVE-X which is the 1st injection molded bait of Megabass will come back with LBO II weight system!!  The concept of LIVE-X is “It’s neither a Jerkbait nor crankbait. It’s the LIVE-X. It’s like live bait.”. Brand-new LIVE-X is designed for light feeling bass that does not bite VISION ONETEN nor crankbait. Yuki Ito: the designer of Megabass spent 800 hours for aerodynamic simulation to achieve 30% longer casting distance in the opposing wind than other isometric lures. Besides, thanks to its ability to prevent stuck, Live-X works great not only for fish cursing at range around 3.5m (12ft.) in depth but also at range shallower than 2m(6.5ft.) in depth.

MAGDRAFT HASU RAVER

The triple jointed body and ultra-thin joints and the fins that move life-likely with a slight stream of water create a realistic swimming action just by retrieving. In addition, by long jerk just below the surface of the water, it shows off an escape action that makes real fish escape. Furthermore, Megabass' original mug hold system magnetically attaches the hook to the body. It camouflages the presence of hooks and eliminates discomfort to fish and obstruction of action. It is the ultimate natural bait that should be called a pseudo-living body beyond the category of swim bait.

DEAD SLOWLER (Available now!👉 Here)

The DEADSLOWLER is designed for dead slow retrieving speed which works when you fish in the early spring or the spring. Since water is still cold, bass cannot chase baits aggressively. In such a situation, retrieving slowly is the key. Besides, when you focus on the big one, swimbait is one of the best options in the season. Jackall had not have such a swimbait despite many companies such as Megabass have similar product. (For MEGABASS, DEADSLOWL is the one. For IMAKATSU, LAZY SWIMMER and HUDDLE SWIMMER are the one. ) Finally, Jackall has unveiled their swimbait for dead slow retrieving speed.
