A global standard crankbait
The DUO Realis Crank M65 8A crankbait was the first model to be launched by Mr. Hajime Murata, who has been flying around the world to target various fish eating species. Although the lure may seem big for use in the domestic market, its volume was designed to maximize the casting ability for use with bait-casting tackle. DUO aimed for a globally versatile lure with the highest standards and performance for use in various field conditions. The 8A will trace a range between 2.0m ~ 2.5m with a distinct high-pitch wide wobbling action even while using thick line. It will become a lure productive for not only pre-spawning bass lurking in the weeds, but for your medium range game throughout the year. DUO wanted to create a lure where anglers would say "all I need is this" and will still be outstanding in 5 ~10 years time. Please experience for yourself Mr. Hajime Murata's inexplicable passion, the Realis Crank M65.
DUO has employed a fixed weight system to enhance the highly responsive cranking action. The weight distribution and aerodynamics of the body design has been carefully considered to give it the top of the class casting distance.
DUO has loaded the lure with 3 conflicting factors, “strong water-pushing wobbling action”, “light reeling sensation” and “range keeping ability”. It has also been given sufficient buoyancy to produce the “sharpness” in its action, while responding to both slow to fast retrieval.
Carefully Selected Hooks
The hook size was one of the factors where Mr. Murata placed great emphasis . As we all know, he has traveled to the most exotic water systems and oceans to conquer various species. In order to successfully land monstrous bass and other exotic species, a one size bigger and thicker hook size was essential.
