Question is simple. Do you throw more silent or with rattles? If you use rattles more often do you use the big one knockers or little bbs?

I like both and throw both but if you told me I could only have one, it would be rattles. No one knockers.

Definitely silent on all mine except for a few chartreuse ones that are DRS or "Deep Rattle Sound". Basically a one knocker. No rattling ones at all in my boat and plan on keeping it that way.

I throw silent too but I was curious to see how many people throw them with rattles a lot. It started because I was looking at trying out some lucky craft cranks and I was trying to find something like a silent 1.5 but it seems there are a lot more options with rattles.

Rattles for squares. Only exception is some of the balsa ones but I don't throw those very often.

I've never really noticed a difference. I'll typically tie on a silent one during a tournament on a highly pressured lake. But I'm probably 80% rattles.

I really like the Rick clunn's and they happen to be silent. They have done great for me. I also do well on the KVD with rattles both in the 1.5 size. I just have the confidence in squarebills so it really doesn't matter as long as it looks good and fits the circumstances. I think they make the Rick clunns with rattles now but I strocked up a while ago lol

Yes.

I thow more silent baits than most people, but not all. Now if you are talking deep divers, more rattles. But, I am a BIG believer in the square bills that are hand made, wooden baits. Made of balsa or cedar. I have been throwing them since before 2000. Mostly Stanford Cedar Shad and Gary Dees D-bait. It amuses me when everyone jumped on the band wagon of square bills. Just too funny.

Tight lines, keep safe and good luck.

I think people just realized how ell they work. Same with any technique. Once word gets out it works it gets popular. Nothing new. Been happening for years.
