Lure Review



Slowing Down with the MagSlowl by Megabass


Date: 5/5/18
Tackle Type: Lures
Manufacturer: Megabass of America
Reviewer: Cal

Total Score: 7.75 - GOOD

During the Spring of 2017, we shared our long overdue look at Megabass's somewhat unconventional MagDraft soft bodied swimbait. It was unconventional for the way in which it was intended to be fished - fast. Today we finally take a look at the MagDraft's more chill sibling. Introducing Megabass's MagSlowl soft bodied swimbait.

Introducing Megabass's other soft bodied, paddletail swimbait, the MagSlowl.

Impressions: Megabass's MagSlowl is almost identical in appearance to the MagDraft. Like the 'Draft, the 'Slowl is available in three sizes but its color palate is limited to six colors instead of 10. The bait's actual sizes are also one inch shorter than the 'Draft - five, seven, and nine inches instead of six, eight, and ten.

The primary difference between the MagDraft and MagSlowl baits is in the shape of their respective tails. Where the MagDraft has a tail with a kind of squared off tear drop shape, the MagSlowl's paddletail is more rounded off and kind of upside down when compared to the MagDraft. The 'Slowl's tail is wide on top and skinny on the bottom. Some colors of the MagSlowl also feature a treble hook with hand tied feathers.

Color Ketabasu comes with a feathered treble.

Real World Tests: It's taken me a little while to get around to writing this bait up because I keep mistaking it in my tackle box for the MagDraft. Finally, I had to simply take all my MagDrafts out so that I could keep it straight in my head and focus on just the one bait. My primary combo when tossing the MagDraft was Evergreen International's TKIC-71MH Kaleido Inspire Super Stallion paired with my Shimano Antares DC17 spooled with twelve pound (12lb) Seaguar Tatsu Fluorocarbon line.

Rigged and ready to go.
