Duo Realis Crank G87 20A
G87 20A’s crank development was carefully put into motion by DUO’s R&D team. The need for a crankbait that could dive beyond the 20-foot mark and accurately reach its target has been desired by professional anglers. To make a lure dive deep is not a huge challenge. But to make a lure dive and remain balanced, travel (like an arrow) through the air minimally influenced by cross winds and stay within strike zone longer with minimal reeling tension requires precise engineering.
The G87 20A diving ability can be attributed to the advanced weight transfer system in deep diving cranking soon to be used on the professional bass circuits. G87’s enlarged magnetic ballast carriage hides the casting bearing outside the body cavity, where it`s held by a magnet made of Neodymium, a material considerably stronger than the usual magnesium, necessary due to the size of the bearing.
The 20A’s body is approximately 3 inches in length and weighs at 35 grams (1-1/5 oz), with a heavy weight appearance you would think heavy resistance and heavy line tension (during the retrieve) would be apparent traits, but it’s the opposite.
