Delivering consistent results, the CR-8 is a reliable basic crankbait.
Reliable and easy to use, the CR-8 is a basic crankbait that promises steady results. Using the tungsten weight transfer system as its main weight, the CR-8 can produce tremendous distance even against headwinds with low-orbit casting thanks to a body and lip designed for maximum reduction of air resistance. At the same time, we’ve made dramatic improvements in accuracy for near- to medium-distance casting requiring only light force. Furthermore, the use of a low-gravity fixed sub-weight system solved the recovery problem commonly seen in conventional models that use a weight transfer system. As soon as the retrieval begins, it produces movement in the water that’s enticing to the bass, appealing effectively to every corner of the strike zone. The hexagonal cross-section of the CR-8 creates color variations and heighten its flashing effect. Its not-too-bold natural vivid wobbling action is an effective magnet for schools of fish and invites the bass to take a big bite.

- Tungsten weight transfer system
A tungsten weight system along with a body and lip designed for minimum air resistance produce remarkable distance and accuracy.
- Fixed weight at low gravitational center
The lure is mounted with a system of moving gravity center, but fixing its weight at a low center of gravity produces a fast swim start and great action response. It forms the base for a variety of retrieve speeds, from slow to fast.
- Coffin bill
The tip of the round lip was given an angular design. Produces natural-looking action and excels at avoiding obstacles.
- Hexagonal body line
The cross-section of the hexagonal body is effective not just for water displacement but also for visual interest from flashing colors and lights.
