From their striking finishes to the free-floating rattle chambers that emit varying sound frequencies, it's easy to see why these Strike King Pro-Model XD Series cranks are so popular with the pros.
''This thing is amazing. When it gets down to its running depth it moves back and forth as it travels along. It looks like it's hunting or rooting or searching for something. It may be the most realistic action I've ever seen in a crankbait. They bite it like crazy.'' Kevin VanDam

Rated 5 out of 5 by bassfishallthetime Hard to beat the 5xd!
I truly consider the Strike King 5XD a confidence bait. I have caught more bass on it than any other deep diver I own. It has an awesome action, & as advertised hits 12-15ft. The four colors I catch most of my fish on are Bluegill, Chartreuse Sexy Shad, Blue Gizzard Shad, and Gizzard shad. The 5XD is hard to beat!

Its not fishing, its catching when you tie on the 5XD. Those lunkers who lurk in the deeper depths of the lake or river can't hide any longer. The 5XD is excellent for working the drop offs where the big fish stage prior to moving up for a meal. The action and color patterns entice even the finickiest of fish.

The Strike King 6XD's are the best deep diving crank baits on the market at a very affordable price! These baits run true and the hooks are very high quality. Just tie them on right out of the box, and hang on! Great color selection, I have 2 of each color.

I love to throw crankbaits anywhere I can. I already have a series 6,which dives down to 15 ft. I am wandering if I should also get the 5XD, which also dives down to 15 ft. I heard that the size difference is important, but I am wandering if a 1/4 inch in length is really that important.
There are times and conditions that a 1/4 in. can make all the difference in the world. Use "Match the hatch" as a rule when choosing a crank bait and try to choose one that is close to the same size as the bait fish on that body of water.
The fish will tell you that. I use the 6XD as a summer crankbait and it is superb. As with any bait, you are trying to match the size of the forage and the closer you get to that the better off you are. I'd use the larger bait in summer and fall.
