With its unique air-filled bubble tail, the Strike King® KVD Perfect Plastics Caffeine Shad flaunts an awesome set of moves never before seen in a topwater shad bait. Crafted with the world's best plastics, the Caffeine Shad is extremely soft and pliable, loaded with heavy salt, and strongly laced with real coffee scent. This deadly combination maximizes the Strike King Caffeine Shad's appeal by masking unnatural scents and giving fish a tasty reason to hold onto the bite longer, resulting in a healthy increase in positive hook-ups. You can rig the Shad weightless for topwater, add it to a Carolina rig, or pin it on a jighead when fishing down in the water column. Shallow or deep, the Caffeine Shad is the bait to reach for when you need to really wake the bass up!

Needs some work
I really started fishing the swim baits a few years ago and now use them as my primary lure. The Perfect plastic are a great lure save and except one major flaw. They have no staying power. One fish or a number of casts the end breaks down and the lure is basically useless. There has to be a way to make the lure more durable. I found myself being really stingy with the the ones I have because their life span is terrible. I would hate to break it down to the amount of money per time used, I really think it wouldn't be worth it. Stike King needs to improve this baits longevity.

These Caffeine Shad flukes by Strike King are fantastic. I like how they sink in a level form and they are great for casting and skipping under docks and overhanging branches. The bass really grab a hold of them and don't let go.

I saw these used on 'Zona's Awesome Fishing Show' so I had to try them out for myself. Absolutely killed the bass over the weekend......have to order some more since I could only get about 3-4 uses per since they tear and can't get the hook to sit properly......small price to pay for a geat bait.

To keep this short and to the point, if I could only take one lure out for the day...it would be this one in KVD magic. Rig it weightless on a 4/0 EWG and enjoy the show!!

I have bought several packs of Caffeine Shad and about half of them come with a plastic liner inside holding the jerkbait closer while the other half do not come with that plastic liner? The ones that do not have a plastic liner, are more greasier and I have noticed that they catch more fish than the pack that contains the plastic liner which are not as greasy and are lighter in color. What is that plastic liner for and why do some come with it while others do not?
I would say the lighter the color the better. in darker water you need a bait that has a good visual presentation as well as Audio presentation. The bass will more likely go for a white or pearl color rather than a dark color in murky/ darker water.
