The Magdraft is designed for a hard tail-kick, and vigorous head-shaking action, for a natural presentation that moves a surprising amount of water. There is a specific retrieve speed to achieve this unique action, and we recommend a 5.3:1 or lower ratio reel, with a medium-slow retrieve. Your Magdraft will tell you if you are reeling too fast (it will come up), or too slow (it will sink and drag its tail, without any head-shaking action). Once you find the Magdraft’s sweet spot, you will be rewarded with the kind of head-shaking, tail-kicking action that big bass crave.
