The erratic and evasive action of the Headbanger lures gives you the ultimate tool to perfectly mimic a spooked fleeing bait fish and trigger a reaction from the predatory instincts of the fish.

The non-repetitive movement is created by the patented head, a loosely attached guide lip with a specific balance that results in constant change in the lures’ moving direction, making them move with irregularities naturally resembling that of a nervous and injured prey. Also trembling on irregular basis, these lures add something truly unique to your tackle box. Let the headbanging begin! 

A hybrid of hard and soft, the Headbanger Tail has an insane swimming action with obvious non-repetitive movements that gives hesitating pike a real challenge. It is very responsive and vivid at slow speed but can handle slower trolling speed as well.

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. 

Floating Model

The floating variant is the ultimate shallow water tail lure. If you retrieve it slowly,  y ou can fish it on the surface, leaving a trace for the fish to discover and get amazing surface strikes from aggressive predators. If you want to fish it deeper, down to around 1 m, just increase the retrieval speed slightly and lower your rod tip if you want it to go even deeper. If you have a lot of line out and are trolling at faster speed, the lure will go down to 1.8-2.5 m.

Suspending Model

The suspending Headbanger Tail is a true pike and muskie seducer. You can vary your depth between 1-3 m by adjusting your rod tip position, the amount of line out and your retrieval speed. The lure hangs in the water when you pause your retrieval. If you retrieve it and do a jerk stop, the lure will turn straight to the side and stare any following predator provocatively in the eye and surely trigger a strike! 

Sinking Model

The sinking Headbanger Tail is a great lure if you want to reach deeper without using any additional weight on your line.
