DUO Realis Pro Aaron Martens has been throwing the M-Line series of cranks – M62 5A, M65 8A & M65 11A for several years, In this video, he talks about his experience including the almost 10-pounder he caught on them.
DUO has entered the crankbait market with the tournament anglers needs in mind. The conviction to that aim begins with the expansion of the Realis M-Line. The M-Series platform in development gave way to additional innovation and technology. The M62 5A has been assigned to the M-series fleet, charged with shallow-water probing. The M62 5A may be one of the most expensive shallow-water cranks created. But its high-quality componentry provides durability, better performance for a better more refined execution.
The thin-cut lip, structurally reinforced, provides significantly more integrity to the fore-region of the lure. While its surface is perfectly flat and wide, the lip also is proficient in displacing a significant amount of water. The lip’s edge is angled designed to grab more and aid with tight to radius deflection.
The slight flat s and tapered areas on the reinforced structure provide more flash and assist in less resistance to the body. The M62 5A has a very balanced-running action that has been perfected over years. It’s distinct, yet proven wobble is a refreshing departure from the industry standard.
Many shallow-water cranks have a decent action but they are difficult to cast respectful distances. M62 5A has an advanced weight transfer system to ensure great wobble and accurate placement. The advanced ballast system possesses magnetized carriage that releases the casting bearing on to a wide track that directs it to the rear of the lure. The ballast at the rear allows the tournament angler cast greater distances more accurately. Once M62 5A begins to be retrieved the magnet sucks the ballast into a specific position which frees the lure’s action and keeps it balanced. Now an angler can crank in close quarters or stretch it out with long casts along flats without sacrifice.
Crafted by global fishing icon Hajime Murata, the Duo Realis M65 Crankbait is a sleek, new crankbait made for targeting bass that inhabits deeper waters. Designed to dive from 8-11 feet, the Duo Realis M65 11A Crankbait alerts bass to its presence with its finely tuned, metallic rattle, which consists of an internal metal plate and steel ball. Replete with intricate detailing, the Duo Realis M65 11A Crankbait features an incredibly lifelike scaling pattern and big bulging eyes that bass love. Ready for tournament action straight out of the box, the Duo Realis M65 11A Crankbait possesses an unmatched aesthetic that bass outside of Japan has yet to see.
