Gear Review: Berkley Power Blade Spinnerbait

WHAT IS IT?

Berkley Power Blade Spinnerbait

WHAT SETS IT APART?

Berkley jumped into the spinnerbait game head first with an entire lineup of Power Blades that cover a variety of different blade combinations. The Power Blade series features three separate compact versions that have weight incorporated into the shank of the hook. Each Power Blade Spinnerbait is equipped with top-notch components including a razor-sharp Berkley Fusion 19 O’Shaughnessy style hook, durable wire, 3D eyes, premium blades, molded bait keeper and a hand-tied PowerBait infused skirt material. Also, the weight of the spinnerbait is printed on the head of each bait for easy identification and selection.

HOW DO I USE IT?

Every style of Power Blade offers a wide variety of colors that have anglers covered in different water colors as well as different forage bases. Regardless of where you fish, there’s a Berkley Power Blade that will fit your needs – double willow blade, tandem blades, single Colorado, Indiana blades, painted blades and even a separate compact series that is perfect for those situations where the bass are being stingy. Also, the range of colors perfectly match the variety of blade combinations.

ANGLER’S INSIGHT:

I’m always a little reluctant to trust a new spinnerbait, but the new Berkley Power Blade series of spinnerbaits truly cross off every box. A spinnerbait has a lot of moving parts and a number of components that all matter a lot. If one component is no good, it essentially ruins the spinnerbait (for me anyways). However, the attention to detail in these spinnerbaits is unbelievable.

As I began to look through each style of spinnerbait in the series, it became very apparent that there were a ton of different SKUs that cover every situation under the moon. Whether you’re wanting to burn the bait near the top of the water column or slow roll it down a log in muddy water, there’s a spinnerbait in the Power Blade lineup that will get the job done.
