Envisioning Megabass as Your Plus One

Total Score: 7.83 -
Do you attach suspend dots to your Vision OneTen jerkbait hoping to get it to run deeper? Maybe heavier hooks? Notice how these weight modifications affect how the bait swims? Megabass knows there are times anglers wished they could get an extra three to four foot depth out of their OneTen jerkbaits and have responded with a long bill version of the bait designed to get up to three feet deeper than the original. Here's our look Megabass's Vision OneTen +1.

Introducing the Vision OneTen +1.
The Vision OneTen +1 goes by many names: the OneTen 1; the OneTen Plus One; the OneTen Plus. Whichever name you choose to call it, this bait is essentially the original OneTen with a slightly longer bill. This bill isn't really long enough to make the bait a deep diver, but it is designed to get the bait down deeper than the original. It measures out at roughly three eighths of an inch longer than the original OneTen's bill but also at a much shallower angle. Lastly, instead of placing the line tie in the middle of the diving bill as we see with many baits designed to dive down deep, the OneTen +1's line tie remains right at the bait's nose.
The OneTen +1 is a deeper running version of the original.
Real World Tests: For the purposes of its on the water tests, I fished the Vision OneTen +1 on my G.Loomis MBR842C GLX and Shimano Chronarch MGL combo. The reel was spooled with 10lb Seaguar Tatsu Fluorocarbon.
The bait's moving balancer system consists of two internal
Castability: The Vision OneTen +1 features the same moving balancer system found in the standard Vision OneTen. This system is made up of two tungsten bearings that slide from the bait's belly to its tail section during a cast. This shifts the bait's momentum into the direction of your cast helping with both distance and accuracy. This system works very well in the Vision OneTen +1.
The bearings slide from the bait's belly to its tail during a
cast providing better distance and accuracy with each cast.
Dive Time: The Vision OneTen +1 has a medium diving angle. It doesn't get down as quick as a deep diving crank, but its maximum rated running depth is only nine feet. On ten pound fluorocarbon, I estimated it took about two to three medium intensity rod pulls to get the bait down to maximum running depth. The bait's action is very similar to the standard OneTen with big side to side jumps with each pull or twitch of the rod.
The OneTen +1's diving bill helps it reach depths of up to nine
