Megabass Baby PopX Limited Japan Colors
These Japan only colors have very limited quantities. Once they are sold out we will not get them in again.
Introduced in 1996, the Megabass PopX breathed new life into the
old-style popper concept, adding a gill-system and an attention to
detail that set this lure apart from conventional poppers. While the
carefully crafted contours of the body and the detail of the
hand-finished paintjob might draw your eyes first, the real magic is
seen on the water, when the Megabass original Side-Stepping Balancer
(PAT.) brings the PopX to life. This balancer system features a fixed
tungsten weight at the tail, and a spherical tungsten balancer towards
the front that can only move from side to side. This channels the
weight’s movement laterally, combining the spitting action of a popper
with a truly unique rolling-dog-walk action. Of course, the PopX can be
worked like a regular popper, but unlike a conventional popper—which
only splashes—the patented gill system of the PopX has two slits that
allow for water to pass through, creating a more organic surface
disturbance. In addition, the mouth of the PopX is designed to maximize
the spitting distance that can be achieved with each twitch, resulting
in considerable water-displacement.
For best results, twitch the PopX so that it moves about three inches
at a time. At this pace, the PopX will spit water about 10 inches,
creating the impression of a wounded baitfish. Early mornings and cloudy
days are particularly effective times to fish the PopX. We suggest
fishing the lure around grass beds, points, or down shoreline cover.
