Distance isn’t the only improvement, however; since the Variable Resistance Flap-Bill (PAT.) moves on a pivot, the bill-angle varies with the amount of water pressure, allowing for unique action. This means that with a hard “jerk, jerk, jerk” retrieve, the FX ONETEN will exhibit even more erratic action, mimicking the flat-out panic of a baitfish in distress. The moving bill will also breathe new life into the subtle rod movements often required in pre-spawn situations, transforming each delicate twitch into distinctive action. These dynamic three-dimensional movements will make past jerk baits seem obsolete.
The jerk bait has evolved.
