Anyone else have problems with the paint on red eye shads chipping really badly? I had 3 brand new ones I was using today and all of them chipped badly with one having no paint left

I believe if you contact strike king they will send you new ones.

I don't think its a strictly Strike King problem.. I have a couple of Xcalibur XR50s that did that same thing.. also a Rattletrap that has done it too. I think the hooks on rattle baits are the culprit.. hate it though. XR50 is my favorite bait and not only do that chip, but aren't made any more.. frown

Yes, and with the eyes coming off.

Strike King has all but lost my squarebill and trap business

Too many better options out there now for marginally less cost

Pradco discontinued the Excalibur line of baits but are now making those baits under the booyah name. Check out the link below. Same baits colors and sounds. Just a heads up. $6.99.

They will still catch fish after it chips. For me it's actually better.
