The Headbanger Cranky Shad combines an edgy, erratic, and evasive side-to-side Headbanger action with a powerful low frequency vibration that displaces a lot of water and makes it easy to detect for nearby predators.
The Cranky Shad features rattle balls, realistic eyes, as well as internal holographic foils and transparent outer body paints that give the lure depth and a natural look. This is a great lure for pike and big trout and bass. A simple, straight retrieve produces amazing swimming action, which can be further enhanced with pauses and twitches. It is suitable for shallow spin fishing, or for targeting pelagic predators. The erratic action also makes it an outstanding trolling lure that can be weighted or down-rigged to reach desired depth. You can also remove the Action Lip if you want to fish shallow or with a calmer gliding action.
