The new ABT Lures Hybrid Shad combines the enticing action of a swimbait with the diving qualities of a crankbait. Designed to help you put more (and bigger) bass in the boat, it dives down to the 5-7ft range with ease, and it’s jointed body allows it to effectively mimic the swimming motion of a real forage fish. Similar to the popular King Shad that ABT president, Allen Borden, also created, it’s smaller in size and features an enhanced design for a more refined action. Each bait also features durable stainless steel hinges for rugged, reliable performance, as well as super strong laser sharp hooks. The product of extensive research and on-the-water testing, the ABT Hybrid Shad even features ABT’s “Natural Image Transfer” that perfectly replicates the patterns and colors of various baitfish species.
Comments: Used it for the first time on a highly pressured lake, caught a couple of bass on it. Nice swimming motion, the Threadfin Shad is very realistic looking as far as paint. It does slowly sink if you pause it during the retrieve, and I did not see that mentioned in the product description.
