The WANTEN R "Hi-FLOAT" is a secret tuned model of the WANTEN R that demonstrates its spectacular power in high water temperature periods when weeds and grasses grow. This is a model compatible with the special method that Shinji Sato, the leading person who spread the so-called exhilarating pattern, is fully ready to send out.
The royal road method is to jerk twice in an open area on grass or grass. As an application, it is effective to cast tightly around covers such as shore bushes, leads, and laydowns, and around structures such as piers and rocky areas, and then jerk twice to float.
To be honest, I wanted to keep the explosive power of WANTEN R "Hi-FLOAT" a secret, but it was a model that could only be released by Shinji Sato, a professional guide who wants to see the smiles of many anglers.
ONETEN R /R+1 /R+2/R+3
The ONETEN R was specially designed by Yuki Ito and renowned jerkbait angler Shinji Sato. The objective of the ONETEN R was to build upon the unique jerking action of the ONETEN, and fine-tune for domination on Lake Biwa in both straight retrieve and traditional jerkbait applications. During jerking and retrieves, it exhibits unique performance, honed over countless years of experience and prototypes. This full contact jerkbait “system” targets specific depths, and will reliably draw out reaction bites no matter the season.1. ONETEN R retains the sharp, darting action of the original ONETEN, but during retrieves it’s designed to perform a refined, natural action that will get the attention of even the most cautious bass.
2. Moving balancer system now features one tungsten weight instead of two. By combining the weights into one main weight, it increases the casting power and flight distance due to its beautiful flight posture.
3. By switching between the ONETEN R, R+1, and R+2, you can adjust precisely to the appropriate swimming depth.

The birth of Megabass in the U.S. is the stuff of legend, involving a cross-country trek in the early 90’s, in which the Megabass designer/CEO Yuki Ito challenged pro staff of local stores and area pros to one-on-one fishing duels. The rules were simple: if Yuki Ito won, the store had to buy his lures; if the U.S. angler won, then Yuki had to buy local tackle from the store. This “put your money where your mouth is” approach, combined with the quality and flat out fish-catching ability that was evident in Yuki’s handcrafted Megabass equipment, succeeded in convincing stores to take on this premium imported tackle.
Today Megabass still embodies that daring spirit. Each product is a painstaking marriage of handmade form and technological innovation. Megabass strives to capture the same care, quality, and attention to detail embodied by the handmade tradition. In a modern age dominated by CAD and mass production, every Megabass lure is based on a hand-carved Yuki Ito original. Each stage of the development process is closely monitored with exacting quality controls to ensure that the mechanical process of production does not whitewash the integrity of the original.
Little has changed since Megabass’ birth in a garage in 1986 at the hands and ideals of Yuki Ito. Today Megabass continues this tradition of innovation, quality, and custom handicraft, never losing sight of the angler’s hands for which each Megabass® product is painstakingly made.
Formed in 2013, Megabass of America, Inc. is a subsidiary of Megabass, Inc., and is responsible for brand strategy, product development, sales, and marketing in North America, and sales and business development in Central America, South America, and Africa.
