THE Berkley Powerbait Ripple Shad features a sleek profile complete with extremely life-like details, including 3D eyes and compelling colouring.
The designers say the ribs or ripples extending all the way to the bait's tail set it apart from other similar baits on the market, creating additional water disturbance and vibration as well as a larger surface area for the PowerBait scent to work its magic.
The paddle tail still imparts its characteristic vibration and classic swimming motion, while the Ripple Shad's thick head makes rigging easy and is perfect for holding the keeper of a Nitro jighead. The Ripple Shad also benefits from Berkley's legendary Powerbait scent infused into every bait. The Powerbait formula generates a bite when nothing else works and causes fish to hold on 18 times longer than unscented baits.
Berkley Powerbait Ripple Shads come in 7cm, 9cm, 11cm and the giant 16cm sizes for use in all manner of situations from finesse estuary and freshwater locations to heavy estuary and offshore fishing.
New colours include Black n Gold, Galaxia, Cappuchino, Ayu, Pearl White and Greenback Pearl.
