The DRT Tiny Klash displays one of the the highest degree of engineering ingenuity and precision in a swimbait, but once you get to know Division Rebel Tackles, their level of quality will become apparent as it shines through in everything they do.
The Klash Low-Float sits lower in the water, subsurface, but just barely, and if on fluorocarbon, the bait will sink ever so slightly.
The Division Rebel Tackles Klash Lip and Tail are important pieces of the lure's engineering. Constructed out of ABS Plastic and designed with a keel on the underside, the Klash lip is removable allowing the bait to display different actions based on the users preference.
The Klash Tail is another crucial element in lure's action and was perhaps even more painstakingly researched and tested than the lip itself. There's a expression from Latin that says, "The smallest things are the most important" - and we feel that is very accurate when describing the Klash as a whole and specifically when explaining how the the tail works. The easy part to understand is that the tail is a dense, durable plastic that fits in the bait securely and will remain in tact throughout it's life span under normal use. What may be a bit more difficult to explain is the change in action the tail's orientation causes. Division Rebel Tackles distinguishes them as Mode A and Mode B - Mode A features an upturned tail whereas Mode B has the tail turned down. While this may appear insignificant, it actually changes the way the bait moves through the water drastically; think of it like a rudder behind a boat. Below is a graphic showing the action of the bait when each tail mode is applied.
The Klash will display very different actions when used with different configurations and retrieve speeds. Below is a comprehensive list of the two models and each of their configurations.
When using the Hi-Float version the lip isn't going to make the lure dive very deep, even at high speeds you are looking at maybe 2 feet which essentially would make the action similar to that of a very shallow crankbait. More commonly though, when fishing the Hi-Float version you'll be retrieving it like a surface wakebait which will cause the lure to swim along the surface and kick it's tail as it moves leaving a V-wake in it's path.
- Lip in - Tail up: Retrieved slow, this is your standard wakebait displaying a side to side swimming action. If you reel it a bit quicker it will dive like a crankbait or a sub-surface wakebait displaying a uniform action and tight wobble.
- Lip in - Tail down:Very unique action - instead of a side to side swim the body rolls back and forth all the while leaving a wake in it's path that is really cool looking.
- Lip out - Tail up: This is going to be a walking topwater bait like a spook or frog with a bit more buoyancy and water disturbance.
- Lip out - Tail down: Our early favorite way to fish the high float, this configuration will allow anglers to do complete 180 degree turns that are something you have to see to believe.
The Low-Float is a pretty rad bait. You can make this bait swim with a wide, uniform back and forth sway or a completely unpredictable side to side glide that has seemingly unlimited cadence opportunities.
- Lip in - Tail up: It's got a rolling action with a really wide swimming motion like a hunting style crankbait. It's definitely something that would appeal to all species of bass and even could work for some monster brown trout.
- Lip in - Tail down: Very predictable, uniform swimming action like a standard crankbait, cranks down pretty nicely.
- Lip out - Tail up: Not much action to it, it's going to look like a screw bait or spy bait. It is probably the one configuration that doesn't really do much for us.
- Lip out - Tail down: Once you add the DRT Klash Glide Weights this will become a glide bait with absolutely no predictability - it can and will swim back and forth and then just dart out randomly with no warning. If you impart some twitches or quick reels to it you're gonna be able to do some trick maneuvers that will surprise even the most seasoned swimbait angler.
The Tiny Klash is available in two models - that Division Rebel Tackles labels as:
Hi-Float & Low-Float. First and foremost, let's take those two terms and redefine them.
- Hi-Float means floating. This version of the Klash is a topwater lure
- Low-Float means it sits lower in the water, subsurface, but just barely. If you use fluorocarbon, the bait will sink ever so slightly.
- Length: 6.6"
- Weight: Low-Float - 2 ounce
- Material: ABS plastic
- Hooks: Owner Trebles
- Rattles: Hi-Float - single knocker rattle. Low-Float no rattle.
