The Fish Downsea 9" Shad Body is made with a formula that will hold up to numerous bites from Striped bass (aka Stripers, Rockfish, Linesiders) color. These bodies also have more to hold the tail together so you end up with less lost tails unlike many of the other shad bodies on the market today. This particular shad body is UV Purple in color that stripers, speckled trout, and weakfish seem to love. Use these shads on your Mojos and umbrella rigs. It would be hard to find another shad body that holds up like ours.
