Staying true to the Evoke Series, the Deps Evoke Zero 120 Topwater features a body profile designed after the shallow crankbait. But as its name indicates, the Zero is a topwater single prop plug that flat out causes a raucous and disturbance on the surface. Designed by Elite Angler, Kenta Kimura, he set out to produce the loudest prop bait that was made out of stronger material that would endure intense usage. They spent extra detail on the sound the prop emits and the construction of how the prop is assembled in the tail portion of the plug.
The Evoke body is now equipped with a durable aluminum single prop. It has a baitfish silhouette and an explosive noisy sound. Evoke Zero creates a squeaky clapping sound from the single prop as it works on the surface. It attracts bass from long distances and works great as a search bait to cover vast amounts of water. It’s a noisy bait that appeals to big bass.
Durable Aluminum (Duralumin) Single prop
The rotational movement of the high-strength duralumin single prop creates an unbalanced and erratic action that shakes the body and creates a powerful sound. In addition, the Evoke Zero creates a strong vibration and wave on the surface.
*The duralumin single props and aluminum collars will eventually wear over time. The prop set will be released soon and allow you to replace it for peak performance.
A swivel is built into the line eye in the upper part of the body to work in synchronization with the props. This helps during the cast and also reduces grass from catching on the bait and reducing line twist. It also helps when a bass is thrashing during the fight and helps to increase landing percentage.
The fat body of the Evoke has a great profile and excellent buoyancy. It has a low center of gravity that runs true, even with the rotational force of the props.
The front hook on both baits is a RYUGI pierced quad, with four hook points for a better hookup percentage. The hook is also on a swivel for even better hookups and landing ratio. The rear hook is a super sharp treble.

At $50.00 you get a plastic body and a couple of hooks and not much thought. The rear hook gets fouled by getting tangled with the prop. This happens 7 out of 10 casts. For $50.00 bucks this should not happen at all! Joe Buscher has a topwater plopper bait and they took the time to figure out an excellent way to keep the rear hook out of the prop's way. Dep's dropped the ball with this overpriced dud. I added a couple of splitrings to the rear hook and that helps a lot. PH Customs makes a plopper bait half the price and it works better out of the box. Dep's saw dollar signs with this bait, and dollar signs only. No thought or creativity at all with this zero.
