Is the mega bass vision 110 worth it?

Recommended Posts

Just picked up a MB 110 Jr. at Cabela’s. At $20, is it overpriced or worth it?

It's worth it if you think it is. In the right hands, yes it is worth it. In my hands, not so much...

Not my first choice but whether or not it's worth the money is up to you.  When I was a broke teenager I would say no because of the cost. Now that I am in my 40's time on the water is more valuable than the cost of lures. I  am going to spend $20 on a lure that runs right as opposed to a $3 lure that I have to spend an hour tuning.

Not to thread-jack but what about the Vision 110+1 and the Vision 110 Magnum...just as good?

My last couple of bass trips have confirmed to me the worth of the megabass visions. I threw a 110 jr in Spain and it was demonstrably better than anything else I was carrying and recently in Canada the 110 +1 was an absolute stand out. The vision 110 baits work with far less angler input, which makes long jerkbait sessions far less strenuous. The KVD and Lucky Craft baits would do pretty much the same thing, but needed much bigger rod movements and effort to get them to dance.

Too fragile and expensive for my taste, but deadly fish catchers while they're in one piece.

Does a bear....never mind. If you can afford it, yes.

Given the title of the thread and question, I'll throw out an alternative. The Rapala Shadow Rap. You're at $10 bucks for an exceptionally effective jerkbait. 

 

How confident are you in your jerkbait presentation skills? How bummed/frustrated would you be if you snagged and lost a vision 110? The answers to these questions should help guide your purchasing decision. 

 

I actually have never fished the vision 110 BUT what I can say was that jerkbaits had a fairly steep learning curve for me. It really is something you sort of have to practice to get the rhythm and feel down. The rod and type of line you use (braid-to-leader or straight fluoro or whatever) will have a substantial impact on the way the jerkbait bahaves in the water. There's more to jerkbaits than just price point - spending extra doesn't suddenly make you a more effective angler with jerkbaits. 

 

Point is, if you're at all unsure whether a $25 jerkbait is worth it then my suggestion would be to pass on it for now and work with other proven jerkbaits (that cost 30-40% what the vision 110 does - Berkley Cutter and Skinny Cutter are good ones, too) until you feel very confident in that particular presentation.

I actually have a shadow rap but I didn't get a bite on it all winter last year so I don't have much confidence in it, though I'll definitely try it again. I actually already bought the 110 yesterday.
