    I just got one and I am wondering if anyone has gotten a chance to try it out. I am wondering if it will catch fish for how much it costs and how reliable is it? It has a plastic type hinge and I am just worry that if I hook a big bass it will break it. Any insights would be greatly appreciated.

    Two things Ive noticed about Strike King baits crankbaits and jerkbaits.

    1. They catch fish.
    2. They break so easily it is hard to justify buying them!!!

    I got to go out and try the King Shad tonight. It does catch fish although nothing big yet. The bait is fairly large and is quite intimdating because it is a big bait (about 5" long and 2-1/2" wide) but I was able to catch basses between 12" and 15" so I guess the size of the bait did not bother the basses. I caught a bass that was about 8" with it too. The bait barely fit into its mouth. I was greaty surprised. I will give another update if and when I catch something big on it and see how it holds up.
