Introducing a completely new sensational bottom-tapping crankbait: X-DAD. Often referred to as "Uchida Craw" (Signal Crayfish) by the lure's creator, Yuki Ito, this craw-like suspending crankbait is designed to perform under tough conditions such as shad kills, where water temperatures drop precipitously low and result in massive die-offs and largely inactive bass.

Mimicking the food of choice for many bass--crayfish--the action offers various tricks while remaining incredibly snagless. Designed to suspend to depths of roughly 10ft, the X-DAD's elongated lip taps along bottom structure, giving off seductive wiggles and vibrations with each deflection. Tuned to suspend, the X-DAD displays its true potential with a stop & go retrieve, pausing nose-down to look just like a foraging crustacean (complete with durable feather antennae on select color patterns).
