An extremely versatile bait, the Berkley Havoc Beat Shad was designed with Mike Iaconelli and is an astounding hybrid of a grub and a finesse swimbait. On any retrieve speed, the tail beats from side-to-side, triggering a feeding response from any nearby bass. Put it on a darter head, a shaky head, Texas rig it, or use it as a trailer. No matter how you use it, the Beat Shad is hard to beat.

I rig these on a swim jig head and they have great action. If you fish ponds these can't be best. The only problem I've had with these is that they don't last long. If you get one short strike it tends to rip pretty bad. But usually you can get 5 or 6 quality fish out of 1 bait.

This bait is GREAT. I found them when looking for for Keitech Swing Impact. The Beat Shad worked just as well or better when fished side by side. One of the best Bass lures I've ever used bar none. Whether casting, trolling, or drifting they just catch fish. Color selection is important. .

Let me start by saying I am a big Havok Bait fan. I picked up the Beat Shad before going to a tourney and during the tourney I tied one on just to try it and let me tell you-- it worked. Bait action is great and lure works good in cover when rigged Texas style. My partner was throwing a bait close to the Beat Shad but I was catching 3 fish to his one. I know that maybe presentation might having something to do with it but when I tossed him one he went to sticking fish the same I was. We finished 8th out of 66 teams using this bait and got a really good paycheck. The major problem is the bait is soft, really soft. Smallie Bass would rip it in half. I could only average about 2 fish on one bait. I can tell you also that you cannot repair them either. I tried to glue them, melt them and pin them back together and they just won't fix!! Will I buy more? I already have!! I am in high hopes that Berkley will continue to make them but come up with a material in bait so they are more durable.

This is a good swimbait especially for the A-rig. Similar to the Keitech baits
