About this product

Combining erratic and evasive movement with the irresistible characteristics of the fixed, replaceable paddle tail to give you a swimming action that triggers even the most lethargic fish to strike. The Headbanger Shad 6” 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, the 6 inch format is an excellent choice for down-sized pike and musky fishing, and for hunting trophy bass, walleye, trout and zander.

The lure has a 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 Shad is equipped with premium VMC 9655 PS hooks, #2 in the front, #4 in the rear. Trolls up to 2.5 mph.

The tail is easily replaced by turning it counterclockwise to release it from its corkscrew anchor. The lure has two smaller pegs that hold the tail in place and prevents it from twisting out of position when being used.
