I don't know if KaRue (sp?) is one of the sponsor on here or used to? Have read good things about VibraShock so I'm unsure if its considered as a chatterbait because I have never try it. Have read lot of rave about it on other forum so, it must be a good one?

The only chatterbait I'd throw is the Karu vibrashock.  It has the best hook up ratio and the best quality.  IMO

I have tried them all and for me the one built with the best quailty and will track at any speed as well as come through weeds is the Booyah Boogie bait.  Plus it also had the leverage hook system which helps stop a fish from throwing the hook.

Since I started using the BoogieBait I have not thrown any of the Rad, Strike King, or any others.

Chatterfrog.

But, I've jotted down some of the recommendations on this thread, and may give them a try.

If there is something better than the Chatterfrog, I want it!

I like the original chatterbait. Boohyah's chatterbait is junk. This year I will pick up a pure poison since a lot of people say good things about it.

I feel it is really unfair to a lure or company to claim they are junk without backing up your claim with proof. Please back up what you are saying with details. Would you please point out why you think the the Boogie bait is junk?

IMO the Rad bait is of poor quality because.....the blades are thin and bend easily, the bait flips over when you try to burn it, the hooks will straighten when using braided line. The finish is mono color and cheaply applied, comes off with any contact with rocks, docks, or even a fish's mouth. The skirts and some of the designs of the Rad chatterbaits do not stay put, and there is no barbs to keep trailers attached.

Now look at the Booyah Boogie baits.....the blades are of heavier metal and are interchangable, the bait runs perfect at any speed, the hooks are not only bigger and stronger but are welded to heavy wire braid and flex so a bass cannot throw the bait as easily, The paint job is detailed and tough with big glued on red eyes for extra attraction. The skirts come in more and better colors and are easily changed, plus there is a good barb on the head to hold trailers without needing glue.

This is my opinion based on actually using these baits and seeing the difference. Have been fishing well over 40 years and in tournament competion for half of that. So I have some idea what to look for in a quality bait.

Just for the record I am NOT sponcered by Booyah baits.

Another Chatterbait note: I am still using the original 1/4 oz model I bought from the inventor in 2004. I use it with 50# braid. I've replaced the line tie twice, the skirt about 4 times, and the trailer at least 20 times.  All the wannabe Chatterbaits with the split ring connection between the blade and jig head get hung up too much in timber. I caught several bass with it this week. It is like the Energizer bunny- it keeps going-going-going------

The Booyah Boogie Bait is the only 'chatterbait' that caught me fish and made me a believer in that type of lure.  Not to mention when compared to others, it is clear the boogie bait is of higher quality.  Thicker blade with better plating....unbeatable hook system.....just quality IMHO.  Cortez Shad is the one to get.

My favorite is the original chatterbait. I will admit that it looks to be made cheaply, and the skirt does slide down. I just add a dab of super glue, and this fixes that problem with ease. I don't know, the original chatterbait just seems to give off incredible vibrations/action. The only other chatterbait I have tryed was the booyah chatterbait. I was not impressed. The action I didn't believe to be superior, nor the vibration to the original chatterbait.

I am not a huge fan of chatterbaits all together, and there is only 1 case where I will throw one. And that is dusk/night (or sometimes overcast), with a black/blue chatterbait, and a black/blue hulagrub as trailer. Any other time I prefer to throw a spinnerbait. Although I am thinkin of buyin a firetiger pattern one to try during chocolate milk conditions.

Ps. The hook on the original chatterbait I found to be garbage. I used a pair of pliers to bend it a bit downwards, as I felt the hook was too far bent up. I also used a hook sharpener on the hook. The hook is now ultrasharp, and after the adjustments I have a better hookup/land ratio.

Wait till that stupid little clip on the head causes you to lose a fish or two, then you'll really love it.

Or when the lame leverage cable breaks for no reason.

Rad lures is good but poorly made.

Boogie bait is junk. It comes apart at the head.

Best made by far is Pure Poison.

All have same action but compare the 3 and you will pick the Pure Poison and not look back.

Nothing that is mass produced is 100% devoid of defects.  To be honest this is the first time I have even heard of the clip coming undone or the wire braid separating from the hook.  

All I know is I am throwing these a lot more then spinnerbaits and finding they catch good sized fish, both Smallmouths and Largemouths.  Last year in Florida I did very well using these Boogiebaits and could not buy a hit on a spinnerbait.

Thanks for the heads up and I will keep an eye on both things you mentioned. :(
