''The new Perfect Plastics are awesome! Great body styles combined with the added attraction of our new Coffee Scent and a plastic that is unlike anything else you've ever fished, you're sure to catch more and bigger fish!''

Strike King's Caffeine Shad offers a unique bubble tail to give this topwater shad bait an awesome action that's never been seen before. Offering the world's best blend of soft plastic ingredients, the Caffeine Shad contains large amounts of salt and coffee scent. This deadly combination keeps the Caffeine Shads soft and pliable, while increasing the Caffeine Shad's appeal by masking human scents and making fish hold the bite longer for increased hook-ups. Rig weightless and twitch for an awesome topwater bite or fish it on a Carolina rig or jig head for that deep water bite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BigDawgBassmaster Great action
I use the Caffeine Shads and Zoom Super Flukes for most of my soft jerkbaiting. Though the Super Flukes are a staple, the Caffeine Shads offer more action in the tails...especially when burned near the surface. On an unweighted setup with an EWG hook, the Caffeine Shad sinks horizontally and offers a bit of tail action on the fall. This bait also skips better than Super Flukes. However, the Caffeine Shads are not as durable as Super Flukes. The softer plastic doesn't seem to last as long as the Zooms. But there are times when bass seem to prefer the coffee scent over the Zoom's non-scented plastic, however. Both serve their purpose at times, but Strike King has better color choices. The Baby Caffeine Shad in KVD Kick color typically gets the nod as my first choice in clear waters.

Not sure why I started using the Strike King KVD Perfect Plastics but glad I discovered them. They glide like a wounded minnow and I never used a plastic bait the fish reacted by swallowing it so deep that the only release was to cut the line. They smell so good I'd eat them. Give them a little twitch and the fish find them like live bait or swim them along with a twitching patient retrieve. For deeper water try a split shot 12 to 18 inches above the bait. Big smallmouth bass love them in river or lakes. A can't miss presentation.

Ater using Slug-Go's for several years I started looking around for something a little different to show our local bass. Enter KVD Caffeine Shads in Smokey Shad color. Bass seem to love these things as they have great action on the move or on the fall. I never go out without one of these rigged and ready! A great product that really produces.

by bullpestererer Worth it, I think
I have a bit of a love hate relationship with these baits. On the one hand they are not very durable, a couple fish and they are done for. That being said, they seem to have no equal when it comes to getting bites. I have tried similar lures alongside the Caffeine shads only to see my action decrease to near nothing. So I guess if catching fish is the goal, and it is for me, buying them is a great idea!
