This bait has an awesome searching wobble on the retrieve, especially on a slower retrieve. Also, the variety of colors and styles is incredible, you can find a pattern for whatever situation you may need.

The Strike King KVD square bill is an awesome crankbait. With it's square bill it deflects off of cover often triggering strikes. It's wide searching wobble also draws strikes when worked over weeds and down shorelines.

I have a KVD 1.5, and it is silent, no rattles. The Strike King catalog lists the KVD 1.5 as .."no internal rattles for a silent approach". Your page shows the KVD 1.5 and 1.0 with rattles, so need to make sure that is accurate.
The 1.5 is smaller then the 2.5. Let the fish tell you what they want, sometimes they want a smaller profile bait sometimes they want a larger one. Also always try to match the hatch. If you see that the forage fish seem to be smaller in your area go with the 1.5 and vice versa with the 2.5. Its always good to have a few in each size readily available.
Basically size and that's it. You have to study the forage in your fishing area to figure out which size you want. I fish in the Susquehanna River and the forage here is usually small so I go with the 1.5. Plus I am a smallmouth fisherman so smallmouth will like the smaller bait.
I'm not afraid to use mine in a grassy area. I try to make sure that they tick the top of the grass and weed beds. I've used them in ponds in my area and have been sucessful in catching bass with them.
