Headbanger Shad combines the erratic and evasive Headbanger movement with the fish-like characteristics of the fixed exchangeable paddle tail for a predator-teasing action that no other lure can offer. Available in floating, suspending and sinking versions with replacement tails.
New 6.3in (16cm) Headbanger Shad size for 2018!
Headbanger Shad is constructed with a wire-through-body design. It 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.
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.

- Premium VMC 9655 PS hooks
- Hook sizes: #2/0 in belly and #1 in tail

High Praise for Headbanger Shad
The highly praised Headbanger Shad was listed by Field & Stream as #1 in their ICAST report “Top 15 Hottest New Fishing Lures for 2018“. It was awarded 2nd place in the Best New Hard Lure category at the European Fishing Tackle Trade Exhibition 2017 in Budabest, Hungary.
Headbanger Shad vs. Headbanger Tail
The Headbanger Shad is the same length (9″/23cm) as the insanely popular Headbanger Tail but has an overall larger profile and weighs 30-40% more (depending on version).
Both hooks are on the hard part of the lure (vs. the tail placement of the 2nd hook on the ‘Tail' model). Headbanger Shad's most obvious differentiation is its fixed paddle tail that can be easily replaced.
These features combine to make a new entry to the Headbanger family that provides a better casting experience.
