2014 ICAST Strike King KVD 8.0 Square Bill Crankbait with Mark Rose & IB...
2014 ICAST we find FLW Pro and deep water expert Mark Rose with the new KVD 8.0 Square bill crankbait. Big baits equal big bites. We've all heard that before, so tie on the all-new KVD 8.0 from Strike King and prepare to catch a giant!
"The nature of today's tournament atmosphere has changed," says four-time Bassmaster Classic champion Kevin VanDam. "Gone are the days of catching a limit to survive. Survival and success in today's tournaments require catching 5 big bass every single day.
"That need led us to design the all-new KVD 8.0. The 8.0 is a large-profile bait designed to mimic the bigger-sized forage of giant bass. But don't think for a minute that a 3-pounder won't eat it too."
The all-new KVD 8.0 weighs in at 1 ½-oz and runs 3-7 feet deep. Much like its squarebill brethren -- the KVD 1.5 and 2.5 -- the 8.0 has the erratic "hunting" action that made this line famous among anglers. It also is designed with no rattles for the silent approach that maximizes its ability to take advantage of the reactionary nature of a bass. The introductory lineup will include 10 fish-catching colors and can be found at better sporting goods retailers everywhere.
