Looks like they've discontinued Sexy Shad. Been one of my go-to for a very long time and just now down to 1. There is a Royal Shad but it's not the same. What are others throwing for a 2 1/4" crank bait in that color or close to?

do you only have 1 in that color...or only 1 left period? Sexy shad is a pretty basic pattern, im sure any decent painter can repaint yours in your choice of color if you got the baits to paint

I have a few more and you can buy other colors. Royal Shad is close, but why cancel sexy shad? It's like one of the most basic colors for the shad run. On my lake the smaller profile just seems to catch more fish.

Are they discontinuing the color or the model all together?

Just curious as you state the smaller profile so that makes me think the model.

I bought 5 of their cranks, first two had the bill break in half and I gave the other 3 away.

For the money there are much better options.

They just discontinued the color. I've had great success with them over the years. But I guess that's what I'm asking. What models do you like? Time to try something new.

I bet if you called their office and talk to Lloyd he would get you what may be left on the shelf, if there's any to be had.
