What is it?
Duo’s Realis Vibration 68, a 68mm lipless crankbait.
What does it do?
It’s a Japanese-designed lipless crankbait that has been designed to cast better, run better and be an all-around better fish-catcher.
Why do I need it?
For ripping bass out of shallow, sprigging grass, yo-yoing it up off the bottom through suspended fish or just covering an awful lot of water.
How do I use it?
Like you would any lipless crankbait. They’re good when cast over a submerged grass bed and run right along the top of the grass, or fished vertically off of deep structure such as a shell bar or rockpile. Early spring is a great time to get the lipless rattle baits out.
What sets it apart?
This is probably the thinnest lipless crankbait you’ve ever seen. The advantage of this is twofold: it casts really easy, and it has a tight shimmy as it is retrieved. The belly section has been redesigned to make a more compact profile, further enhancing its castability. Also, there are multiple sizes of internal rattles that make a wild sound as the bait is pulled through the water.
