A popper frog is essential for conquering heavy cover. To get at those monsters that hide in the jungle, we at Megabass spent two years of testing to develop a unique catamaran-type mouth and active body design that creates realistic splashing. The most important thing in a popper frog isn't just the popping sound itself, but whether or not the water displacement has a truly lifelike impact. Bass don't have a constant visual lock on baits swimming above the cover, nor do they rely solely on sound; often, they rely on water disturbance to determine the size or type of prey. Therefore, the PONY GABOT has been tuned to the water displacement and sound characteristics that resonate with the monsters lurking in heavy cover.
To create the illusion of a real aquatic creature, the PONY GABOT's large Catamaran Mouth (D.PAT.P) bites into the water, and uses the water resistance as a pivot-point to lift its rear up slightly so it can hit against the surface, resulting in a never-before-seen type of realistic presence. What makes this possible is the low center-of-gravity design and the iconic tail, which combine to create the unique rocking movement. The pendulum-inspired back and forth motion combined with the surface contact of the tail control the excessive jumping and rolling that has plagued past models. By using a larger body, it retains a clearly visible silhouette while stationary, and drastically reduces missed bites common with popper frogs. The PONY GABOT will overthrow your preconceptions about frogs, and bring further excitement to your summer top water games.
The "Catamaran Mouth(D.PAT.P)" design uses its high stability to reduce the excessive midair rolls that can lead to missed bites, and give the lure the ability to perform pinpoint turns. The unique mouth design draws from the design of catamaran boats, and creates lifelike, airy popping sounds. While dog walking, this design also creates water-penetrating sound waves along with splashing.
The original hook
The original hook design evades floating cover, and boasts high hookup rates, allowing for a stress free approach to heavy cover.
The pony tail skirt
The pony tail skirt reduces contact and resistance on the water’s while not interfering with dog walking. It follows the swinging motion of the body with a slight delay, making an extremely appealing target.
