2. Hildebrandt HeadBanger
“Anytime I’m dealing with large areas of vegetation, I try to make a buzzbait work. They're not always the best choice, but when they are, it’s game on.
“I like the HeadBanger because of the loud clacking sound the plated blade makes when it strikes the tin head. It’s almost as loud as a string of tin cans trailing behind a newlywed’s car. The bait runs true at warp speed, and the hollow tubular skirt traps air, which allows me to retrieve it at ultra-slow speeds. Any slower and it would be made of cork.”
