A Bass Pro Exclusive! 2011 Bassmaster Classic's winning lure!
This overbuilt chunk of a scrumptious bass treat rumbles down to the ideal depth for a do-it-all cranker. The key with this Strike King™ crank is to bump it off cover—the square lip prevents most snags, and it's the easiest way to indicate to Mr. Greensides that this is his most attractive option. Add the perfect color schemes, and you're in the money!

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.
