Kohoku SP is a color that was born more than 20 years ago, when Yuki Ito was attacking Lake Biwa by bass boat. The whole body is based on a lightly glowing purple pearl, topped with a hint of dark green on the back. It appeals to anglers with its mysterious glow in the water. This image is similar to the color of the spawning beds in the northern part of Lake Biwa as seen from the top of a bass boat, hence the name "Kohoku Special". It is most effective in the early spring when the water temperature is low. It is also very effective in shallow areas with muddy bamboo grass, and produces explosive catches when the water starts to clear up. The Live X Revenge in this color, and the method of using the old Deep X 100 and 200 in slow motion to lure big bass, was one of Ito's favorite patterns at the time. It later became popular after Ito publicized it in a magazine, and many fans have a collection of products in this color. It is one of Megabass' most memorable color patterns of all time.

Introduced in 1996, POPX continues to dominate the high-end top-water bait markets of both Japan and the United States. Equipped with MEGABASS original SIDE-STEPPING BALANCER (PAT),POPX walks a rolling dog-walk unlike any other poppers, and the WATER DUCTS(PAT)which imitate the bubbly water coming out of gills and help create a natural"bio-sound", not an ordinary popping sound. POPX also spits, not splashes, quite a distance. Currently 16 colors are available."GG"stands for GUANIUM GHOST, the most shad-like finish, "PM"PEARL MICA(including SG CRACKED finish)and "GP"GUANIUM PHANTOM(including GP CRACKED finish),a see through phantom finish.


The POPX has a large impact and presence for its size, capturing the attention of fish below the surface. The body is constructed with a custom resin tuned to the same density as wood, for an exceedingly natural presentation. This is evident by examining its behavior in the water, namely its wake and its responsive movements. Not only for dawn and dusk, the POPX will perform excellently even under the midday sun.

Specific gravity setting that properly engages the water

The POP X, despite its size, gives a decent presence to fish under the water. The specific gravity of wood is molded into the body resin itself. This is evident in the ripples that form around the POP X and in the trajectory of its action. The POP X is effective not only in the morning and evening, but also on clear lakes during the daytime in mid-summer.

Spit-out splash and rolling dog walk action

The POP X has transformed the world of topwater lures with its unique spit-out splash and rolling dogwalk action. Even the flickering of light is a unique feature of the POP X.
