The Soft Side of Sebile's Award-Winning Stick Shadd

#Sebile's original Stick Shadd won the Best Hard Lure of 2008 at EFTTEX in Rome, Italy, and it has always been Patrick Sebile's own personal favorite lure model. Now the Stick Shadd Hollow, a soft plastic version, is available for 2011.

The new Stick Shadd Hollow has all the features, actions and benefits of the regular Stick Shadd hardbait, PLUS all the additional benefits of a soft body which gives even more advantages to the angler, such as snagless rigging to fish right in the heart of thick cover where the big ones hide.

As with the regular Stick Shadd hardbait, the soft version also has a very compact profile and shape of a real fish. It is extremely efficient in terms of castability and aerodynamic penetration through the air for the longest distance cast possible. It also has a lot of reactivity when you work it by small twitches, jerks or even reeling it in straight, the body is very reactive thanks to SEBILE's unique "Power Keel" design underneath the bait. The Power Keel provides the amazing and unpredictable swimming, jerking, darting and sliding action that brings this bait to life with 360 degrees of unpredictable and lifelike movement.

In terms of durability, the Stick Shadd Hollow is designed extra thick where it matters most so that it's as long-lasting and re-usable as possible. Although the body is hollow, it is not a thin plastic around the hollow part. It is really a thick enough layer designed so each bait has the possibility to last longer than most other soft hollow lures. The bait comes in 85 and 100mm sizes (3-1/4" and 4") and in 6 colors.

SEBILE's Award-Winning Soft Weight System Included

To rig one weedless, use SEBILE's award-winning Soft Weight System for best results. Voted Best Accessory / Terminal Tackle of 2010 at EFTTEX in Valencia, Spain, the SEBILE Soft Weight System allows for easy addition, removal and repositioning of tungsten rubber weights. The Soft Weight System, including a SEBILE hook that is custom-made to perfectly match each size of Stick Shadd Hollow, plus the tungsten rubber weights come inside every pack of Stick Shadd Hollow lures.

The Stick Shadd Hollow can also be fished on a jig head such as the new SEBILE Flats Jighead. Both the Stick Shadd Hollow and the Flats Jighead are very responsive to any rod twitch or nuance in the movement of the water, both the Flats Jighead and Stick Shadd Hollow are designed to respond in unpredictable, responsive reactions that trigger more strikes.

The Stick Shadd Hollow also excels on a drop-shot rig, Carolina or Texas rig, fished wacky style and even on a fireball or bluefish rig.

This streamlined bait's shape also makes it a great choice for skipping under docks, mangroves and other overhanging obstacles. The ratio between the weight, length and shape of the body is simply the best combination for skipping incredibly far back underneath anything.

MSRP: Stick Shadd Hollow (Pro Pack) 85 $12.72, 100 $13.78
