The Maria Shad at 45mm and 3.4g has a strong flashing appeal from its fat, flat sided body. It has a strong range of actions including twitching, rolling, walk the dog etc. The twitching action is especially important around tight feeling zones like structure. It responds to a wide range of retrieve speeds from slow to fast and has a low tone rattle sound. The suspending body will stay in the zone and has a paused nose down posture of about 45 degrees giving the lure instant action with every subtle line twitch.
