About this product

Combining erratic and evasive movement and a wiggling jointed curly tail to give you the liveliest possible swimming action. The Headbanger Tail works well with just a simple straight retrieve, but excels when used with pauses and twitches. Available in three different buoyancies for different depths and styles of fishing, it is typically used to target northern pike, muskellunge, big zander and lake trout.

The lure is made of ABS plastic, has a full wire-through-body construction and is equipped with rattle balls of different sizes for a fuller sound. The lure is lead-free and the weights inside are made of stainless steel. Headbanger Tail is equipped with premium VMC 9655 PS hooks, #2/0 in the front, #1 in the rear. Trolls up to 2.5 mph.
