Duo Realis Crankbait G87 15A
After their successful foray into the deep diving crankbait market with the 20A model, Duo Realis went back to the drawing board to engineer the G87 15A Crankbait a plug designed to reach the 14-16ft range. To set yourself apart from the herd in the crankbait market, a company has to take serious its understanding of hydro-dynamics, materials and components. It must also have excellent balanced, castability, defection, unique yet proven vibration and low line-tension during retrieves. The Duo Realis G87 15A Crankbait possesses all of those features and appears ready to take over that deep - yet not ultra deep - range of cranking from 14 to 16 feet of depth.
Keeping the 87 mm profile and maintaining the advanced weight transfer system, DUO Realis has issued their new deep diver – G87 15A filling a void in the crankbait market that anglers are now starting to see with the movement toward deeper water understanding afforded by the advandements in electronics. Duo's G87 15A is definitely a niche bait, as it's rare to find a really well done hardbait that dives between 14 and 16 ft. without wearing your arms down or having to upgrade line size to restrict diving depth. This crankbait successfully incorporated a pronounced yet sinuous wobble with low hydro-resistance during the retrieve and allows an angler to achieve much more without the extra weight and fatigue.
The Duo Realis G87 15A Crankbait measures 3 1/3" in length, weighs 1.25oz and dives 14 to 16ft.

G87`s crank development was carefully put into motion by DUO’s R&D team. The need for a crankbait that could truly dive deep and accurately reach its target has been deeply desired by professional anglers. To make a lure dive deep is not a huge challenge. But to make a lure dive and remain balanced, travel (like an arrow) through the air minimally influenced by cross winds and stay within strike zone longer with minimal reeling tension requires precise engineering. DUO`s chief designer, Mr. Masahiro Adachi has exceeded expectations.
This superior diving ability can be attributed to the most advanced weight transfer system in deep diving cranking soon to be used on the professional bass circuits. G87`s enlarged magnetic ballast carriage hides the casting bearing outside the body cavity, where it`s held by a magnet made of Neodymium, a material considerably stronger than the usual magnesium, necessary due to the size of the bearing.
The G87’s body is approximately 3 ½ inches in length and weighs at 35 grams (1-1/5 oz), with a heavy weight appearance you would think heavy resistance and heavy line tension (during the retrieve) would be apparent traits but it’s the opposite. Mr. Adachi was able to reduce hydrodynamic drag from the bait. Mr. Adachi was seeking to create a vehicle that could be pushed distanced and driven deep into darkest without a hint of labor.
