The HAZEDONG SHAD’s sensitive tail catches the water even during dead-slow retrieves and delicate shaking, triggering targets with its natural vibrations. Compared to the SPARK SHAD, the HAZEDONG SHAD exhibits minimal body movement and concentrates action in the tail for a high-pitch, finesse kicking action. Rig it on a dropshot and shake the line for trembling tail-kicks or employ one of Chris Zaldain’s favorite techniques and try drop-swimming the HAZEDONG SHAD through target-rich environments!

HAZEDONG SHAD’s finesse approach is perfect for highly-pressured waters and high-visibility conditions. Belly slit allows the body to compress when bitten, increasing hookup rates when using offset hooks. With layered material of different densities, the HAZEDONG SHAD is able to maintain excellent stability even when used with no sinker rigs. In addition, this layering process allows for incredibly natural two-tone color patterns.


Ideal for long mid-range retrieves, strolling, and retrieves punctuated by gentle shakes of the rod, the natural flashing and action created by the flat-side body will lure bass in.

Versatile performance to lure in bites from all targets. The tail creates delicate vibrations and appeals to predators.

No sinker rigs highlight the Megabass HAZEDONG SHAD 3’s natural actions, and are great for clear water presentations, delivering bites in even the toughest conditions.
