Category : INDUSTRY NEWS, JDM BASS FISHING LURES
Aaron Martens and DUO’s famed designer, Masahiro Adachi have come together to create Apex! The first in the Apex line-up will be called VIBE 100.
2019 will celebrate the distinctive assembly of a lure line, not to be defined as just another lure in the industry. It will indeed be drastically different. It is the culmination of over 25 years of professional angling and all-time records. It’s the remnants of 3 Bassmaster AOY Titles, 3 US Open Crowns and the intelligence of 20 Bassmaster Classics. It is the wisdom of Western and Eastern US dominance accomplished by only one angler. The thoughts and inspirations of Aaron Martens are now found in a new lure line called APEX. The highest point of lure development and angling skill will converge to a peak in collaboration only achieved by DUO International and Aaron Martens. “I am really excited to be part of the family”, said Martens.
Known in the world of professional angling as The Natural, The Hawg Snatcher, The Lure Doctor, and King Of Consistency, Aaron Martens is the only professional bass angler to rank the highest averages in Bassmaster Elite AOY seasons. His 25 years as a professional angler mixed with the lure creativity of DUO’s famed designer, Masahiro Adachi have come together to create APEX. “I have had a passion for fishing and lures at a very young age. Not only do I love fishing, but also fish as a living species. I am always looking into their biology to create efficient lures”, said Mr. Adachi.
Together Mr. Adachi and Mr. Martens will embark on a journey to forge a series of innovative lures.
The first in the Apex line-up will be called VIBE 100. The giant lipless crank will carry a meaty profile and weight not regularly seen in lipless designs. It will release a unique vibration, exit cover and obstructions with little effort and reach its targets in adverse conditions. It will also possess swim-descent motion and an upright posture, aiding in better line control. “The VIBE 100 will help tournament anglers. I’m really excited about APEX !, Finally, I have a home for my ideas and lure modifications.”, Aaron Martens.
