Majestic Gold Flatshad

The Flatshad is a bait I designed about 5 years ago. Since then, I've modified it many times, but I keep going back to this model, which is the original because it is such a great producer for muskies. It is specially weighted and runs great and will run very well at higher speeds while trolling.

That is a great one FF. How does it wobble? I made one very similar and it rolls side to side pretty dramatically. I was just curious how yours does and if it is heavily ballasted.

Thanks, you guys.

I'm not sure how to describe the action; all I can tell you is it has a tight wiggle and runs great. It took a lot of experimentation at first.

Ok thank you. I was just curious. It runs a lot different then mine then, maybe I will try and give mine a bit more of flat sides. The one I made was more rounded, and with that lip angle I think the flat sides give it more resistance to roll.
