Strike King Tour Grade Naked Rage Blade
Based on an entirely new style of vibrating jig, the Strike King Tour Grade Naked Rage Blade features a jointed blade and head design that increases the action of the lure immensely. Based on the popular Rage Blade swim jig, Strike King revised their original concept by stripping the vibrating jig down and adding their
KVD Perfect Plastic Blade Minnow.The addition of the KVD Perfect Plastic Blade Minnow to the Rage Blade offers anglers that natural look achieved by a swimbait - the perfect profile of a baitfish, with the vibrating action of a chatterbait style lure. This pre-rigged swimming jig is a great alternative to the standard skirted variety we often see fishermen adding swimbaits to. The Strike King Tour Grade Naked Rage Blade excels in all conditions - from ultra-clear water to dingy, stained conditions. As is the case with all vibrating jigs, the key to success is the erratic head movements derived from the precisely engineered blade configuration. This gives the bait an almost unpredictable action that also emits vibrations through the water calling fish from great distances to come investigate.
We offer the Strike King Tour Grade Naked Rage Blade in two sizes: 3/8oz & 1/2oz in many excellent colors. Includes additional swimbait body.
About Strike King Naked Rage Blade
Instead of a standard jig with the addition of a blade, this swim jig is actually two separate pieces a weighted blade which is connected to the eye of a skirted hook. This unique design creates an incredible action that swims erratically along mirroring forage species that bass often feed upon. Furthermore, the lure increases hook up percentages and reduces the change of snagging. The Strike King Naked Rage Blade Swim Jig is built around a super sharp, ultra strong custom Gamakatsu hook that keeps bass pinned all the way back to the boat.
The great thing about vibrating jigs is they are effective year 'round with very situations that are not suitable for their application. The truth of the matter is, the vibrating style jigs are incredibly easy to fish with the most common, and perhaps most effective, technique being a simple, straight retrieve. It's funny how we as bass fishermen try to impart a ton of action on our presentations when many time, the bait and natural water movements create the most natural and appealing movements. The Rage Blade is one of those baits that needs very little angler-guided action. Simply put: "chuck and wind."
Retrieving the Rage Blade with a straight, steady retrieve is the best way to get started with the lure and also the quickest way to learn its natural tendencies and individual quirks. The pulsing through the rod is caused by the baits vibration and swimming action as it makes its way back to the boat. Should you feel that vibration stop, the result is a fish or a piece of grass. It is best to continue reeling a few turns to determine which of the two is responsible. If it does turn out to be grass, simply snap the rod's tip upward and begin reeling once again. Repeat until the vibration returns.
