Megabass of America has been hard at work globalizing the brand's name creating and refining product that not only works in Japan, but in other parts of the world too, and really, primarily, North America. They've had some intriguing bait introductions over the last couple of years and others that feel more like an effort to fill out their catalog. Today, we're taking a closer look at a bait that falls into the former category. Here's our take on Megabass of America's Garuda.

Introducing Megabass of America's Garuda
Megabass of America's Garuda is nine and a quarter inch (9.25"), three-piece bait weighing in at right around four and half ounces. It's made of plastic, not wood, and is equipped with two treble hooks on its underside (brand not specified). But what you see out of the box doesn't tell the entire story for this bait.

If you look closely behind the bait's diving bill, there's a wire loop. This loop is an attachment point for weights allowing you to weigh the Garuda's head down causing it to dive further than the natural 4-6 feet for which it is rated.

On the top of the bait, there's this odd looking, very shallow channel. Turns out there are magnets installed under this channel intended to hold a top hook (not included with the packaging) so that you can remove the bait's trebles and attempt to fish this bait on the bottom.
