Reaction Strike's Revolution Shad now Suspends

Introduction: Reaction Strike builds upon their already very robust lineup of Revolution Shad lures with the introduction of a new suspending model which is designed to give anglers a new weapon in their swimbait arsenal. 


Reaction Strike's Revolution shad is available in a dizzying array of sizes, varying diving types and patterns


The Revolution Shad lineup grows: The original Revolution Shad gets a number of new colors this season and is now available in a dizzying array of patterns, 47 in all! The Revolution Shad is a segmented hard-bodied lure that is hydro-dynamically engineered to produce a realistic swimming action. With the addition of a new suspending model complete with a diving lip anglers can now fish this lure in just about every condition.


The Revolution Shad suspending model comes with a crankbait style diving lip


The new suspending model's diving lip is similar to a deep diving crankbait's extended lip and will get the lure down to a maximum depth of 12 feet. When not retrieved the lure will suspend, and if it reaches the bottom it will sit on the front hook like a foraging baitfish.


The Revolution Shad new suspending version rests on the hook on the bottom


The suspending model comes armed high quality VMC treble hooks, and like the other bait's in the Revolution Shad family will be available in a very wide range of sizes from a tiny 3" model to a mammoth 12" version designed for targeting lunkers.


The Revolution Shad is available all the way down to 3" in multiple versions including waking and suspending


Bassmaster Elite Series professional angler Mark Burgess recently joined the Reaction Strike pro-staff and is working closely with the team to design and introduce new colors for northern waters. Burgess has already been employing these lures on the tournament trail and the newest patterns coming out of this new relationship include yellow perch, chub, smelt, and alewife. 


Go big with the 12" Revolution Shad


Conclusion: One of the best things about Reaction Strike's baits, whether it is their existing Revolution Shad or their existing versions are that they are all very reasonably priced. The 4" models retail for $15.99 while the 5.5" models retail for only two dollars more. Available in a complete range of sizes the company continues to introduce new patterns that help angler's "match the hatch" in lakes right in their own backyards from coast to coast. The new lipped suspending model will further extend the applications for this popular lure series and should be a hot ticket for targeting bed fish this coming season.
