The Strike King Series 6 XD Crankbait was designed and tested for over a year with 5-time BASS Angler-of-the-Year Kevin VanDam before he unveiled a prototype and used it to produce some substantial weights in route to his 2nd place finish in the 2009 BASS Elite Series event at Kentucky Lake. In order to attack those big ledge fish KVD wanted to make sure this bait would not only reach 18-20' depths but that it had the right wobble and shimmy once it got there to attract the bass and entice them to bite. Well balanced it casts like a bullet and has a super-steep dive angle to reach the strike zone quickly. VanDam said he easily got this bait down to 18 to 19' on every cast and it was the erratic action once it hit the bottom and then began to wander off that triggered the bass to bite.
