1. The Megabass Small Crankbait, Beloved for Over a Decade, is Now Renewed: Featuring More Complex Weight Transfer for Irregular Actions
The SHADING-X R is a lure from Japan's unique 'Shad' category. Shads have a form and action intensity that lies somewhere between jerkbaits and crankbaits. They mimic the natural shape of small fish like jerkbaits, yet possess the appealing power of crankbaits, making them an ideal choice that combines the best of both worlds.
The popular 'SHADING-X' series of shad lures from MEGABASS has been renewed as 'SHADING-X R' for even tougher fishing scenarios. The SHADING X R62 is distinct from other shads with its slender, flat-sided appearance. It features a tight, high-pitch wobbling and intentionally limited darting range to specifically target larger bass. MEGABASS explains that while a wider darting range can appeal to a broader area, it often attracts smaller bass first. Therefore, limiting the darting range is better for carefully targeting larger, more cautious bass.
The new SHADING X R series introduces an innovative weight system, the 'NEO TRIANGLE・COUNTER・BALANCING' system (PAT.), leading to a more complex weight structure. Previously, the main weights in the head and belly were fixed, with a movable weight in the back. These three weights formed a triangle, changing balance and enabling a variety of actions. However, by making the belly's main weight movable as well, the lure now exhibits even more complex and unpredictable movements.
When twitched, the lure performs a kickback motion, similar to a shrimp darting backwards, a feature that's more erratic and spontaneous than the original version, creating moments that trigger bites. Its movement, tilting and flipping from side to side, is agile, with a smooth start to swimming. The retrieve pitch has also been intensified, making for a more dynamic action.
2. The Shad for Winning with Reaction Strikes in Tough Conditions When Bass Activity is Low
The SHADING X R62 is a lure designed for competitive fishing, packed with techniques to entice bites in tough conditions. It's particularly effective during the fluctuating temperatures of late winter and early spring, when bass activity drops sharply, especially after cold rainfalls. The SHADING X R62 can be a game-changer in such scenarios.
In clear water, repeated twitching and pausing can induce reaction bites through its complex and erratic action, tempting even the most reluctant bass. It's also suitable for ultra-slow retrieves during low water temperatures, responding well even to slight line tensions.
Moreover, the updated weight system enhances its long-casting abilities, making it capable of casting far even against strong spring winds. This makes the SHADING X R62 a go-to option when other lures fall short, especially in challenging conditions.
3. Maximize Your Catch by Choosing from Three Different Sizes
The SHADING X series comes in three sizes: 55mm, 62mm, and 75mm. We recommend using the SHADING X R62 as a standard and choosing sizes according to the field conditions. The slightly smaller SHADING X R55 is ideal when fishing in shallower ranges or when you feel that bass respond better to a smaller lure.
The larger SHADING X R75 also has a wide range of effectiveness. While maintaining tight movement, its larger body creates water displacement, making it perfect when you want to increase appeal, feel that a larger size matches the field better, or aim for a slightly deeper range.
Having all these sizes at your disposal allows for detailed adaptation to various situations, making each one a valuable addition to your lure collection.
