Combining the erratic and evasive Headbanger movement with the fish-like characteristics of the fixed exchangeable paddle tail, the Headbanger Shad is a predator teaser with an action that no other lure can offer.

It works really well with a simple straight retrieve, but excels when used with pauses and small twitches.

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. Trolls up to 2.2 knots / 2.5 mph / 4 km/h.

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.

Floating Model

The floating version is the perfect choice if you want to go really shallow. It covers the 0-1.5 m (0-5 ft) range with ease, all depending on your retrieve.

Suspending Model

The suspending version is a great allround choice and ideal for the fishing on 1.5-2.5 m (5-8.2 ft) depths. It hangs beautifully in the water during pauses. A hot tip is to pause the lure with a small twitch, which will make the lure turn 90 degrees to the side and face any following predator and no doubt produce a strike.

Sinking Model

The sinking version is a good pick if you want to cover a little deeper water. It can be fished on 2-5 m (6.3-16 ft) depth depending on the distance between you and the lure.
