The reputation of the Combat Crank has preceded its availability in the USA. Avid bass anglers know about this lure series in the USA even though they were not yet for sale here (until now).
Available in several different models and diving depths, the shallow-running Combat Crank 120 in addition to the medium-running 250 are the two best known models. In particular, the Combat Crank 250 is the one model has distinguished itself as the all-around best and most productive of the Combat Crank series.
The deep-diving 320 and extra deep diving 480 are new to anglers in the USA but are gaining acceptance quickly.
All models and sizes cast well since they have a tungsten weight transfer system. All rattle and all are killer crankbaits.
There are still many bass lure models and leading brands that haven't made it out of Japan to the USA. The first Japanese brand to establish a strong US market beginning approximately twelve years ago (circa 2000) was Lucky Craft. In years to follow, up through today, other big hard bait brands from Japan like Megabass, Jackall, deps, ima, DUO (to name a few) and now Evergreen have established distributorships in the USA.
Despite being the #1 brand in Japan, Evergreen's products are virtually unknown in the USA.
For the past few years, Evergreen has sponsored several pro anglers in the USA and they've done well using the Evergreen product models that will be offered in the USA. In addition to Bassmaster Elite pro Morizo Shimizu, Evergreen has established a largely western pro staff in the USA that including Brett Hite, Justin Kerr, Shaun Bailey and John Morrow.
