The Megabass Blading-X is a lead weighted, metal blade, sinking, lipless crankbait fishing lure that is designed for deep diving action.
The lead is molded closest to the bottom of the metal blade, to give the Blading-X its tracking stability, its upright-fall action, and most importantly, to produce a solid vibration, whether on a fast crank or on a lift/fall retrieve pattern.
The lure comes equipped with three tow lug positions, located on the dorsal section of the lure that allows the lure to produce a different action depending on which tow point is used.
The forward tow lug, which is positioned forward of the center position of the lure, is best used on a jerk, rip, or fast continuous retrieve pattern.
The rear most lug position, produces the most intense vibration on a steady retrieve and is best used with a lift/fall retrieve pattern.
The central lug position provides the most versatility, allowing the Balding-X to produce both types of actions when using either the front or rear tow points.
However, when fishing in snaggy terrain, the Blading-X is best fished using the rear most lug position. The further back the tow position is, the more downward the lure faces, keeping the twin double hooks from touching bottom and getting snagged.
The Megabass Blading-X is an incredibly versatile and effective lure, be it in an impoundment pond or out in the wild. The intensity of vibration that this lure produces is what makes it attract attention and to induce its target to take a peck at the it.
History of MEGABASS
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.
