Strike King Creates a KVD 1.5 That Dives to 10 Feet

Strike King’s No. 1 selling shallow crankbait has been the KVD 1.5 square bill.

Its popularity was solidified when KVD proved its effectiveness to the world with his 2011 Bassmaster Classic win on the Louisiana Delta. Since then, it has become a tool responsible for countless wins and high finishes from club tournaments to the biggest stages in the sport every single week. The bait has evolved into 4 other sizes that now includes a KVD 1.5 Deep that gets deeper than most shallow square bill crankbaits.

“There is nothing that triggers bites like the hunting action of a 1.5,” says VanDam. “It has the perfect profile and unique action that gets bites everywhere but it has been limited to the shallower ranges of bass habitat. We’ve worked hard on getting the 1.5 Deep to maintain the perfect action and yet dive to 10 feet.”

The new KVD 1.5 Deep is available in 25 of Kevin’s favorite fish-catching colors and will carry a suggested retail of $7.49.
