ABT’s new Hybrid Shad. It’s a crankbait and a swimbait. A cranking swimbait, or a jointed crankbait, whatever you want to call it.
It does both crankbait and swimbait things. It’ll dive to 7 feet.
It’s an ultra-realistic crank that’s got a little extra wiggle thanks to the jointed body.
More like a crankbait than a swimbait, the bill dictates much of the action. This bait can also be twitched and paused during the retrieve.
The finish is an ABT exclusive. It’s called “Natural Image Transfer,” which puts a photo-like finish on the bait which is then covered with a durable top coat.
A Hybrid Shad costs $11.99.
