In the early 90's, Yuki Ito starred in the fishing video series "X-BITES" that shook many bass fans loose from conventional limitations. The XLAYER's straight-pull fishing method, in which the XLAYER is retrieved to minimize lure motion, may be a precursor of modern I-motion fishing.
The IGX is a new generation of I-bait that combines the knowledge of Tsuguhiko Komori, a top tournament athlete with an extremely logical approach to bass fishing, with the experience of Ito.
The unique keel head, shaped by the latest hydrodynamics, has excellent straight-line performance. At the slightest change in retrieve speed, it produces an incredibly subtle action in response to the change in body posture, as if it were suppressing the rocking of a boat.
Just retrieving the lure slowly will produce an enticing wave of water displacement, confidently drawing bites from clever fish that avoid conventional I-baits.
When you want to catch a big, sluggish bass that won't respond to a standard approach, the KARASHI series is the lure for you. The tougher the field becomes, the more the difference between the KARASHI IGX and other I-motion lures becomes evident.
KARASHI IGX is a superb tool that should be used by anglers who want to tackle serious fields where the slightest difference can make all the difference.

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.
