The Deps Balisong Minnow Suspending 130 may look similar to other jerkbaits in the package, but that is where the similarities end. It features an advanced weight transfer system, similar to that found in the Radscale and Buzzjet, that allows it to move on not one, but two axes – both side-to-side and up-and-down.
On the retrieve, the Balisong responds to even the subtlest rod actions. It has an exaggerated roll, but is so precisely balanced that even on a super-fast retrieve it will always return to center. Its wide side-to-side gait also allows a skilled angler to manipulate it through endless sorts of retrieves – from stop-and-go to feather-light twitches to hard jerks. This means you can create infinitely adjustable amounts of flash to better fit the mood of your quarry. Whether you are fishing around blueback herring in the Carolinas, tilapia in Texas, or hitch at Clear Lake, the rolling action of the Balisong precisely imitates the rhythms of any big baitfish.
Slightly larger than other jerkbaits at 5-inches in length, the wider 12-mm bottom width of the Balisong is also big enough to allow the matching Owner #4 treble hooks (included) to sit flush and avoid snagging or catching one another for a much better hook up ratio. Available in a range of proven colors, Deps Balisong Minnow Suspending 130 is power rip baiting taken to the extreme. No matter how hard you try, you can’t overpower the Balisong, but you can make it dance in dozens of ways.
