Strike King Red Eye Shad Tungsten 2 Tap vs regulaR Red Eye

Is the Tungsten model really better? Will it catch more fish?

This item is made to be different to show (with a different sound) the fish something different. I have been fishing on area loaded with fish catching them on the regular red eye shad then when the bite slows down I make a switch to the two tap and show them something different and continue to catch them. Also will throw the two tap fishing behind some one that is throwing the regular. And there are days where they eat the two tap better hands down and vice versa. they are worth a look if you are fishing pressured waters.

As the previous posted noted, I think this bait excels in pressured water. I've also noticed it out fishes the standard model in colder water. I have found myself throwing it much more frequently than my regular red eye.

I will throw one version and I will have my back seat tournament partner throw the other. This has been a common practice with Rattletrap style baits since they started making different one-knock and silent versions a couple of decades ago.
