This crankbait doesn’t sound like every other plug on the market. I’ve tested nearly all of them if feels like and the sound it emits is unlike many others with which I’ve fished. It has a very pronounced “clack” sound if you can picture that in your mind. There’s no rattle to it like most of the other popular squarebills out there. If you make a cast and start retrieving the Strike King KVD 1.5 Hard Knock Squarebill Crankbait back to the boat, you can actually hear it as it gets close to you.
I wish I could come up with a more descriptive way to characterize this little plug but I think Strike King did a dang good job with the name. It definitely has a hard knock, as of course, the name implies.
If you’re like me and frequent fisheries that get pounded by unending fishing pressure, I’d strongly encourage you to check out this crankbait. It runs true out of the box, the oval line tie gives it a great action and makes knot tying easy and my gosh… the color selections are simply beautiful. If you’re having a tough time getting bites when everyone is on the lake, don’t be afraid to give this plug a shot. It is a catcher and I normally always have one tied on and ready to fish.
