While vibration plugs are conventionally fished in a straight line, the Rocket Darter swims in a serpentine trajectory when rolled in the water, creating a panic bait on the run. The X-80 Rocket Darter uses a trick darter body and is equipped with a tungsten high specific gravity balancer and a fixed low center of gravity balancer for the internal weight. This enables a super long distance shot through headwinds, extending the angler's range. In addition, countdown jerking, in which the angler drops to the target range and starts jerking, produces an impact that crankbaits and vibration plugs could not create. The Rocket Darter is the next generation of a variety of trick action fast moving methods.
