Lure Review

Envisioning Megabass as Your Plus One (continued)

Suspending Action: On the pause, the Vision OneTen +1 suspends at an extreme head down angle. It usually stops dead initially and then can sometimes begin to rise depending on the water temperature and also the duration of your pause. These observations were made on the side of the boat, so with more line out, the bait's suspending behavior might vary a little bit depending on the influence of your fishing line (whether it sinks with the bait like fluorocarbon, or pulls the bait up like nylon monofilament).

Detailing of this bait is typical of the OneTen right down to the kanji character's in its eyes.

Additional Observations: It's actually a little difficult to distinguish this bait from the standard Vision OneTen once you've cast it out and begin your retrieve. I assumed the +1 version would have more resistance in the water since it's a deeper diving bait with a longer diving bill, but that bill does not provide the amount of resistance you thought it might - yet it does what it is designed to do in getting the bait deeper. This is a good thing as there's no extra resistance with this bait making it just as easy to fish all day long as the standard bait.

The bait comes stock with three #6 Kastsuage out barb hooks.

Design/Ergonomics: Megabass offers their OneTen +1 jerkbait in twenty three standard colors. Many of these colors differ from one another only slightly yet are enough to paralyze your decision making process. They must have an annual painting party where it's a contest to see who can come up with the most viable variants of one color by adding a chartreuse stripe down the side, or a splash of orange on the belly, or just the smallest hint of chartreuse on the back underside of the bait. Oh I know, how about adding a fishbone pattern on the outside of some colors?

The OneTen +1 comes in 26 different colors and retails for $25.99.

Price & Application: The Vision OneTen +1 retails for $25.99 per bait and is a good choice to tie on if you're getting chasers that won't commit to the original OneTen. On occasions like this, sometimes, you just need to get the same bait a little deeper and the OneTen +1 is exactly that.

Pluses and Minuses:


+ Easy casting performance - It'd be nice if the bait ran just a little bit deeper than 9'
+ Excellent side to side jumping action - It's a love hate relationship with the Katsuage hooks - love how sharp they are, do not like how they can bend out of shape so easily
+ Host of high quality color patterns from which to choose  

Megabass's Vision OneTen +1 has, of course, found it's way into our regular rotation of baits.

Conclusion: How do you improve upon the original OneTen? Extend the bait's usefulness by making a deeper diving version. My only complaint is I wish the bait would go just a little deeper sometimes maybe even with a larger profile. Then again, maybe that's an opportunity for yet another bait because that's the one thing we all need is yet another Vision OneTen variant, right? It's great to have an effective bait you can rely upon, but when it's a OneTen in twenty six different colors, I'm afraid even an enthusiast tackle buff has limits on storage and finances. But who are we to let practicality stand in the way of extending the reach of your favorite bait? Megabass's Vision OneTen +1 has, of course, found it's way into our regular rotation of baits.
