Duo Realis Crankbait M65
The Duo Realis M65 Crankbait is a bass fishing crankbait featuring a streamlined design that enables it to reach its desired depth quicker and can be cranked with precision once there. The 65mm crankbait was the first model to be launched by Mr. Hajime Murata, the lure designer behind the Duo Realis brand. At 2.5" the lure is the ideal size for imitating a number of forage species bass feed upon and is also quite effective for casting great distances with accuracy. Available in two models - 8A & 11A - both share the same body style and profile, however each has its own unique action due to differences in the lip formation. The 11A possesses a tighter wobble with a deeper diving depth capable of reach around 11 feet. The 8A exhibits a wider, more deliberate action with its peak depth at 8 feet. This gives anglers versatility to tie on the model that is precisely suited to their fishing needs that day. The Duo Realis M65 Crankbaits feature lifelike scale patterns with highly detailed colors and oversized, bulging eyes that give the lure a level of realism not typically found at this pricepoint. Both models come stock with very strong and sharp treble hooks.
We offer the Duo Realis M65 Crankbait in two models: 8A & 11A. Both measure 2.5" & weigh 1/2oz. The 8A dives to 8 feet and the 11A to 11 feet.
- Casting Performance
Duo Realis 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.
- Action response
The 11A has a tighter and shorter pitched wobbling action compared to the longer glides and wider wobble of the 8A. Duo Realis has designed an easy retrieval feel for anglers whether reeling in fast or slow. Its snag-less effect is also highly recognizable and the action recovery after bottom contact is brilliant.
- Sound performance
Duo installed metallic plates which surround a steel ball in the rattle room at the front of the body. These two metallic materials produce a hard sound appealing to the bass in the vast area. 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.
