Magdraft Freestyle









The MAGDRAFT FREESTYLE is the ultimate swimbait for big bass sessions. With a snub-nose design perfect for screw-lock hooks, a pre-cut belly and recessed top-groove, the FREESTYLE is built for easy big-game rigging for novices and experts alike.
Preserving the hard-thumping tail action and deadly head-shake of the original, the FREESTYLE brings a new bag of tricks to the MAGDRAFT’s proven performance.
Select a weighted 6/0 or 8/0 screw-lock hook to target submerged vegetation where savvy monsters lie in wait along shade lines, grass lanes and isolated cover. Excellent for tule lines, laydowns, slow-rolling the depths and machine-gun skips to the darkest recesses of promising docks and overhangs. For extra appeal in open-water situations, try adding a blade for flash and increased drawing power over long-distance retrieves.
Switch to a heavy jighead to crawl chunk-rock, curve-fall river ledges, and main lake drop-offs, and target new depths where the MAGDRAFT has yet to roam. Especially effective tracing bottom contours or bottom-bumping deeper ranges.
Call upon the line-through rigging method to target open shallows and skip deep under overhangs.

Retrieve Tips 
Please note the MAGDRAFT is built for a deadly combination of tail-thump and head-shake to activate the lateral lines of predators. As such, the MAGDRAFT requires a specific retrieve-speed for optimal results. Please experiment with a medium-medium/slow retrieve until you can feel the MAGDRAFT kick into gear and send head-shaking action through the line. If the MAGDRAFT is dragging its tail, speed up your retrieve. If your MAGDRAFT is coming up on its side, check your rigging and/or slow down your retrieve.
