Bass Pro Shops XPS Knocker Shad Hardbaits
I use these for striped bass! The color that seems to work here is the purple one! They are cheap, well made and they last pretty well considering the price! Just an other well made product by Bass Pro!

First day out with this lure, pulled in 6 bass.
Next day had countless bass.
Using the 1oz 4" in Texas shad color had 6" baby bass attacking this thing and up to 5lbs pulled in with no hook issues.
Only issue was the top ring ended up stretching or breaking and I lost the lure.

Excellent for value!!
Great buy!! Beats paying higher dollar for "name brand" bait and catches more fish. Super durable, great hooks, and casts like a dream. Not to mention the life-like action and sonic vibrating rattle.

I bought the Knocker Shad a few years back and have used them sparingly. The main reason for this is that I expected the knocker noise to be more like the XCalibur's. I have always had better success throwing rattle traps with less noise and was looking for something to increase the quality of my catch with this one. Don’t get me wrong, a bass is a bass, but if you can catch a 5 pounder vs. a 2 pounder…wouldn’t you want to?! What I did to all of my XPS Knocker's was drill a hole about 1/2 " behind the first hook to remove the smaller bb’s and then filled the hole with epoxy. This gave it a more unique knocker noise rather than all the rattling.
