New for 2010, The Vision 110 Silent Riser hits U.S. Shores after extensive field-testing, arriving with the same killer profile and deadly Katsuage Out-Barb hooks as the original Vision 110, but now with improved—and silent—action, an upgraded and meticulously engineered fixed-balancer system, and an internal reflective plate.
By removing the rattles and fixing the tungsten balancers of the original 110 “just so” near the first treble hook and tail, Megabass designer Yuki Ito not only silenced the original Vision 110, but also greatly improved its action. This new, upgraded balancer-system translates into more body roll during retrieve, more life-like darting action, and more side-to-side movement of the head when jerked. Under a dead-slow retrieve, the Silent Riser mimics an unwary baitfish, presenting an enticing meal at a depth of up to 7ft. When paused, the Silent Riser rises with its head up at an angle, mimicking a weakened baitfish. Then, with the first snap of the rod, the Silent Riser dives and darts erratically like a panicked baitfish, triggering nearly instantaneous response-strikes.
This enhanced action is complemented by a Neon-Core internal reflective plate which not only increases flash, but increases durability by eliminating the need for certain finishes that tend to exhibit wear under the heavy abuse of hungry bass. And with a slightly higher rate of rise than the original Vision 110 (but less than the Hi-Float), the Silent Riser is highly adaptable, allowing for larger hooks or lead strips to customize suspension and rise to specific conditions.
The Silent Riser is meant for tournament duty, born of requests from Megabass’ Pros Staff for a silent version of the now legendary Vision 110. Faced with post-frontal conditions where fish tend to be more timid, and situations where fish sometimes followed a rattling jerkbait all the way to the boat without striking, our Pro Staff found that the Silent Riser was the perfect complement to the original Vision 110, triggering strikes from non-aggressive fish, and fish that had otherwise grown wary of noisy jerkbaits after days of non-stop tournament fishing. The Megabass Vision 110 Silent Riser: silence is now legendary.
