What is it?
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.
What does it do?
It does both crankbait and swimbait things. It’ll dive to 7 feet.
Why do I need it?
It’s an ultra-realistic crank that’s got a little extra wiggle thanks to the jointed body.
How do I use it?
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.
What sets it apart?
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.
