Megabass I Slide 185 - $59.99
*Please read the note below the description regarding the bait's sink rate.
Combining Megabass' unflinching standard for quality and advanced engineering, the Megabass I Slide 185 takes S-motion swimbaits to a whole new level. Whether it's fished fast or slow, the Megabass I Slide 185 delivers a naturalized swimming action with a straight retrieve, but keeps a trick up its sleeve for when big predators begin to follow - a full 360-degree turn.
Built to deliver a big looping turn with a hard twitch, the Megabass I Slide 185 will momentarily dart out of the sight of predators, double-back, and then return front-and-center to complete the circle. Unlike anything bass have ever seen, the Megabass I Slide 185 is made to draw strikes from big, oftentimes more cautious bass.
Taking their innovative design a step further, the Megabass I Slide 185 features a patent-pending MAGHOLD magnetic hook-holder system, which keeps the razor-sharp trebles cradled tight to the body of the bait. This streamlined profile creates a more natural presentation and prevents the hooks from tangling during a sharp turn. Offered in a number of brilliantly crafted patterns, the Megabass I Slide 185 gets fish to not just follow, but actually bite.

Comments: After using the iSlide for about 3 hours, I managed to land two 7lbers and three 3lbers. Glides and spins and as advertised. These are worth the money. A little bit of glue on the tail wouldn't hurt. Other than that this is well made.

Comments: Heads up Megabassers! Before U-slide you're going to want to take precautions to ensure the tail is firmly attached. (A drop of crazy glue or some double sided tape, etc.) While you're at it, use a needle to add a little glue to the eyes for good measure.

Comments: Beautiful detail. Magnets hold the hooks up surprisingly well. The plastic body and paint seem adequately durable. The soft rubber tail, and the way it attaches, might be pulled free by a violent tail strike. A spare would have been nice at this price point. The ROF seems to be a very neutral slow floater. The sloping back causes the bait to plane down slightly on the retrieve. Experimenting with different retrieves offered just under the surface to aprox. 3'. (braid) I suspect that with fluorocarbon more depth is achievable. I'm finding I like to let it slowly float to the surface before starting a very slow retrieve, just under the surface. I'm intrigued by how its buoyancy offers lifelike suspending qualities. It can indeed complete full 360* turns. Well done. A+
