Missile Baits announced today it has added a swimbait called the Shockwave 4.25 to its lineup of soft plastic shapes.
The bait features a thin tail that has a medium tail swing from the slightest movement in the water. The split belly allows for easy Texas rigging and the body has plenty of thickness for rigging on a jig or jig head. Its in-between size should also make it a great choice for other applications, including the umbrella rig, single jig head, swim jig, and even a Carolina rig.
“The Shockwave 4.25 is a bait that I have been wanting for a while,” said company owner and pro angler John Crews. “There are other swim baits out there, but I could not find the one I needed that had the right combination of size, texture, tail design, and most importantly, action. I think we nailed this in a package that anglers can afford.”
Each pack of Shockwave 4.25 will contain five baits and retail for $3.99. It'll be available in eight colors initially – pearl white, bombshell, shrapnel, army green flash, brass monkey, candygill, green-pumpkin watermelon, and fisholicious.
In addition, Crews has come up with a new color for the popular D Bomb and Baby D Bomb baits called Bourbon, which bares a resemblance to actual bourbon by having a translucent brownish amber color with fine black flake throughout.
