Multi-adjustment for Clever Fish !
The XPOD, a symbol of the new era of Megabass Topwaters that has received rave reviews around the world, is now available in a slender, realistic bait model! The XPOD has the same exciting impact and transforming performance that allows you to set the action to your liking in the multi-step mode, but it pursues a realistic form to accurately bring in tougher clever fish to bite. The silhouette is compact but the action is just as powerful as the original size to strike a slippery monster.
COMMAND-1 PENCILBAIT (ROLL WALKER) MODE
ROD WORK: Continuous twitch
Used with the Command Bill completely closed. The water pressure inside the cup is reduced, the amount of incoming water is minimized, and the keel on the back side of the Command Bill creates a sharp "roll and turn". The keel on the underside of the Command Bill creates a sharp "roll and turn" action, making it a "roll walker bait" with a dynamic flickering action that turns the lure's stomach. It can be used for nighttime pencil bait games and rough water fishing, where it has been difficult to time the dogwalk, by generating a one-knock sound with a shock wave and repeating sharp turns to achieve an easy dogwalk.
COMMAND-2 PENCIL POPPER MODE
ROD WORK: Continuous twitching
Operate the command bill and adjust the level to your liking between one and two levels where a "click" sound is generated. With continuous twitching, the mouth part produces a quiet and natural popping sound with a fine bubble while sliding long to the left and right. At the same time, it produces a hard one-knock sound. This "Pencil Popper" mode is effective when searching a wide area at a high tempo to draw out aggressive feeding fish.
COMMAND-3 ACTIVE POPPER MODE
ROD WORK: Twitch and pause
A wide command bill with three or more clicks is suitable for the "Popper" mode, which is effective for pin spot fishing. It produces a biological muffled popping sound and bubbles, and works as a "picky popper" with low travel distance even in pin spots. It can also be used as a silent popper by manipulating it softly. It is effective when it is jerked sharply from time to time and a one-knock sound is mixed in. If you jerk it with a taut line, you can make it dive slightly just below the surface. If you continue to reel it in with a straight retrieve, it will actively take in water through the intake and become a "swimbait" that swims irregularly in the sub-surface range.
COMMAND-4・5 DIVING POPPER / SPLASH MODE
ROD WORK: Twitch & Pause
Spread the command bill slightly wide and adjust it to bite the water sufficiently. By keeping the line tension taut, a large amount of water is taken in through the intakes in the mouth, and water flows through the ducts under the gills. This creates a water-to-body specific gravity and posture suitable for diving. In situations where the fish are not fully exposed to the water, or when you want to target a big fish at a crucial pin, it is effective to generate a splash and pop sound at the surface and occasionally dive. With a straight retrieve, more water is drawn into the head than with the Command-3, so it can be used as a swimbait to maintain a constant swim layer in sub-surface ranges.
COMMAND-6 DARTING SWIMBAIT MODE
ROD WORK: Straight retrieve
As the Command Bill is lowered, it acts as a stabilizer to control the darting swim posture. At the same time, the water flowing into the intake is actively channeled through the ducts below the gills, allowing for a straight retrieve while maintaining a constant depth in shallow water. Pursuing the escaping action of a medium-sized real bait encountered in peak season currents, the lure swims with an irregular meandering trajectory and a slow flickering roll action. It is a secret real action that turns on clever monsters that have given up on high appeal swimbaits such as conventional swimbaits and S-stroke lures. It is destructive as a tricky dart swimmer when targeting feeding monsters in backwaters, searching shallow in vast weed bottoms, and in river games. When you set it up for the right situation, it's a sight to behold when several giant fish track the XPOD and fight for it.
