I haven't compared all of the options available BUT I am awfully fond of Rapala's Shadow Rap and Shadow Shad Rap.  I've had good luck with both the shallow and deep divers.  My only complaint (it's a very small complaint) is that the "slow rising" versions rise a bit too fast for my taste.  Been meaning to get some Storm Dots to help remedy that.

The Luc e Strike Rick Clunns aren't bad.  Also, Husky Jerks and Storm Twitch Sticks are fairly priced options and perform well for me

For shallow water, a Damiki Slim Jack is hard to beat.

The Jackall Squad Minnow is a staple, and the new Rerange is going to be the worst kept secret here soon. I absolutely crushed it this fall with the 110 size.

The OP is looking for baits UNDER $15, not at $15.

$14.99 is under $15 ;)

 

Also, getting those baits for less than retail isn't hard if you know where to look

Then don’t ever borrow a megabass to try. If they were only $15 I’d buy them all day...

You have a minor addiction. I have never counted mine but I have a minimum of 300 to 400 jerkbaits. I carry a minimum of 15-18 jerkbait boxes in my boat. 

For under $15 price point you can pick from Rapala, Smithwick, KVD, Rebel, Bagley, Duo Realis. Ima, Storm, Spro,Yo-Zuri, Bomber, some Lucky Craft and the list goes on. 

 

My favorites are Rapala, Smithwick, Ima, Duo Realis & LC with honorable mention to Rebel.

Going to order a few Rogues to test out this spring, do you fish them straight out of the package or would you recommend upgrading the treble hooks and/or split rings?

I fish the Rogues straight out of the package. Some models come with gammys but the majority come with eagle claws I think because they point inwardly. I always test the hook points and they have always been sticky sharp. I do replace them one bait at a time as needed with owner stinger trebles ST-36BC & STY-35MF short shank. I usually replace the split rings at the same time.

LC Pointers. Cabelas usually puts them on sale once a year, and I always stock up.

I've caught a ton of fish in both fresh and salt water on the XRap XR10. I often downsize to the XR08 to match the hatch.

 

Another jerk bait I like that does not get mentioned at all is the Zerek Sabre Dance. It's a floater and I like the 85 size. 

Not even sure what they are running for these days but I think they go for under $15. Shipping might put you over that mark though. Can't really find them in stores but sometimes eBay has them listed.

That's the best part about inexpensive jerkbaits -- they still catch bass, but it's much less painful when you get "piked".

It's the only reason I can't bring myself to buy a few Vision 110s, if a pike bit me off there's a good chance my life would turn into some kind of pathetic redneck version of Moby Dick.

Either a LC pointer in 100 or 78 size, or a Dynamic Lures J - Spec.
