The Berkley® BDS is designed to present baits most naturally. The larger head design is developed with controlled density composites that allow the bait to fall on a more natural, horizontal plane. The shape and composite design gives anglers variable sink rate options, as slow as 1.5 feet per second up to 3 feet per second.
