ICAST 2012 : A New Vision for Megabass
Vision 110 Square Bill:
And just when you thought it was safe to close the books on jerkbait types, Megabass is introducing the first of its kind of bait we've seen - a square billed jerkbait - specifically, the Vision 110 Square Bill. This is an even shallower running version of the 110 with a
much wider wobble. Retail price is projected to be $29.99 with availability at the end of 2012.
The Vision 110 Square Bill is designed to swing wide.
FX Knuckle 60 is a square bill crank with an adjustable lip.
FX Knuckle 60: Megabass enters the square bill market with another eccentric interpretation. The FX Knuckle 60 appears at first glance, to be a typical square bill crankbait, only this bait benefits from Megabass's FX lip
In the full down position (right) this bait can dive down to
5 feet and tanks to its unique bill, you can burn it without suffering the roll

The lip has two position settings that deliver different running depths (1-5 feet depending) and different actions (wide to narrow), and a special lip design that allows you to burn this bait as fast as you can without having it roll over like other square bills. Projected retail price is $27.50 with availability at the end of 2012.

FX-Zero: Following on the popularity of their FX-9 jerkbaits is yet another "FX" enabled bait. The FX-Zero is a topwater buzzing minnow that wakes at a slow retrieve, or rolls to deliver a lot of side flash during a faster retrieve. This bait is still in very early prototype stages with no pricing or release date information yet available.

They lack for little in the style department.
The casting rods in this series feature K-series micro guides with retail pricing on the entire line ranging from $275 - $298 depending upon the model. That's right, now you'll be able to get into a Megabass stick for under $300.
