Strike King released a little more information about the Strike King 10XD crankbait. As most know by now, Phil Marks, one of the head designers at Strike King caught a few key fish on the bait in the recent FLW Tour Open, where he blew away the field.

Big bass are known to eat big baits. Coincidentally, bass anglers target big bass. The all-new 10XD deep diving crankbait will appeal to both. At 6-inches long, the 10XD will easily hit the 25-foot mark on 14-pound fluorocarbon line, allowing you to get a crankbait in front of fish that you previously could not reach. It also casts and pulls surprisingly easy for its behemoth size.

“The whole deal with the 10XD is that its size, depth capability, and action appeals to big bass. It catches the grade of fish that win tournaments and stories are told about,” said Phil Marks. “It is perfect for situations such as what I faced at Rayburn. I knew that there were big bass in the area that I was fishing and I knew that I needed to catch them in order to win. The 10XD will do this for a lot people at a lot different venues in the future.”

We talked to Kevin VanDam this week about the new bait and he believes it’s going to be a big player on certain fisheries.

“The bass on fisheries on the TVA, Texas, Florida and California eat big shad. Even as big as this crankbait is, it’s still much smaller than some of the shad, bluegill and tilapia big bass eat. So to me it’s still one of those baits that will shock the angler, but probably not the fish. Now we can get it down there in front of some bass we previously couldn’t reach. And people think it will wear you out, but really it doesn’t pull much harder than a 6XD.”

The 10XD is available in 12 bass-catching colors and will be in stock at better tackle retailers everywhere in the near future.
