Featuring a large profile with deep diving capabilities, the Strike King 8XD Crankbait fits in nicely between the 6XD and the jumbo 10XD crankbaits. Engineered to reach depths of up to 20ft when paired with 12lb test, the 8XD provides anglers with a deep diving plug that doesn't pull quite as hard as the 10XD, but still delivers the size desired to catch big bass. With an action more similar to the 6XD, Strike King's newest deep diving crankbait proves to be a real hunter when retrieved over deep offshore structure such as ledges, humps and ridges. Diving down to it's maximum depth quickly, anglers can crank it along and feel as the lure swims side to side just daring fish to eat it. When it comes to deep crankbaits, Strike King continues to be the leader in the market fielding an impressive lineup of options from the mid range to ultra-deep with both standard and large profile bodies that enable any angler to find that perfect tool for the job.
The Strike King 8XD measures 5.5" and weighs just over 1.3oz which allows it to be launched long distances for maximum time in the strike zone. Unlike the big 10XD that requires specialty tackle, the 8XD can more or less be thrown on your normal deep crankbait gear. We'd recommend using a rod that is dedicated to the larger crankbaits, but no need for swimbait rods or "10XD" specific rods. Strike King suggests pairing the 8XD with 12 - 14lb test to realize the best results with this deep diving crankbait.
We offer the Strike King 8XD Crankbait in all the popular colors.
