Megabass PROP DARTER 80 (X-80 PD)
PROP DARTER 80 (X-80 PD) is something like top-water version of TRICK DARTER. The prop which was invented (PAT.P) just for this bait, is truly unique not simply because it is asymmetric but because of its lively swimming sound and its ability to spit back. As for the body, the inside structure has been completely overhauled and redesigned for a new set of objectives. As a result it leans to left and right when retrieved. It looks like a snake's swimming track. PROP DARTER has a lip, which tries to dive. Yet it cannot dive. This struggle adds to PROP DARTER's unique bio-sound and the surface action you have never seen before.

A scoop building exclusively for prop darters that does not float too much or dive too much
The scoop-like lip of the prop darter is a form that considers the floating angle of the lure body with respect to the water surface. Adopted a shape that produces behavior in response to a slight rod work and delicate retrieve. Make sure to grab the water, do not let the lure dive too much in the water, do not float it too much, and splash and dirt.
Produces actions that work well on the subsurface. The tall hump back body has a shape suitable for rolling. With this body form and high center of gravity, it will appeal with intense action that has never been seen in lures.
Generates a life-like bio sound that makes them go crazy! Unequal design prop PAT.P adopted
By designing the props with an unequal design of exquisite balance and exquisite molding angles for each part, an irregular, irregular, life-like sound is produced. Props that are carefully produced one by one using new materials and high-precision molding technology enable irregular and smooth rotation.
By adding jerk with a straight retrieve or adjusting the retrieve speed, you can create a real splash sound that looks like a bait fish that is preyed on the surface of the water.
Dynamic continuous hirauchi action even with just winding!
The prop darter is a straight retrieve, producing a fierce rolling action that shows the side of the body. Demonstrate "dynamic de-orbital action" by changing the stop & go and retrieve speed. And it creates a feeding state with the sound of bait fish in a boiled state.
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.
