I have never heard of them before until here.I have never even seen them in stores.I looked on their site and saw spinner baits on sale for $6. I thought that was a little steap.Are they that good? I have been using Strike King baits for a long time now.I'm just looking for some feed back on these KaRu lures.

Can you only buy them from KaRu? I didn't see any in stores.I just thought maybe I would pick one up to try it.I didn't want to order on from their site and pay $6 for a spinner bait and than add $10 shipping on top of that.

  • there are actually more than 2 sides to a coin
It's not your average spinnerbait> look close.... it's a new patent design.  See there is a front blade...


And yes I guess you might think they are a litle steep but they catch fish and you cannot buy them anywhere else.  Also their vibrashock is just plain the best of it's type on the market.

P.S. I will need to know what type of water you fish and the main forage.

that's the spirit Lee!! I have a hard time parting with mine....  But I did give to Vibrashocks and 2 vibraspins to Larry of Larry's fishing hole, a central ill fishing reports guy.  He does tackle reviews and since he keeps the website for reports, that I use all the time, I thought it was a good thing to do.  Still haven't been able to get a review out of him. I think the lures have a hard time penetrating the think white water crust.

I have what may be a silly question for the KaRu folks... I periodically hang or break off a lure, so I need to get a replacement (just 1 lure). This isn't too bad when it means swinging by Dick's, Academy, or Bass Pro, but I really hate to lose a Vibrashock because the minimum shipping is almost as much as the bait. Is it be possible to set up a "replacement bait" purchase option that's literally just one bait in an envelope for purchase price + $1 shipping or something like that?

Just curious since I lost another Vibrashock to a rock this afternoon. ~xyz Fortunately I have a spare of that color, but I'm almost afraid to use it because it's been a productive color (Crigger Craw) and I don't want to lose my last one.

Shipping and Handling charges are three fold. First there is the cost to ship you your order along with delivery confirmation charges and tracking info. This alone for just one lure is more than a dollar. Second, packing supplies and labels aren't cheap either, about a dollar per order. Third is time and cost of transport to the shipper. With the cost of gas last year this was a big concern but we still kept our prices the same when others were raising theirs. We also added the "Free Shipping" for orders over $50.00.. The minimum S&H charge is just that, a minimum, anything less and we lose money. Order one lure from Bass Pro and see what the S&H costs are, last I looked it was $7.95 so I'd have to say we are doing pretty good. My only advice, order 10 of your favorites next time and have plenty and take advantage of our Free Shipping  ;)  ;D

Karu's are the real deal.  They might cost more than a cheapo chatterbait or spinnerbait at walmart or basspro, but the quality is far better IMO.  The hooks are stronger, sharper and better and the blades are stainless steel, making them nearly impossible to bend.  Go buy another brand chatterbait and see how easy their blades bend very easily. The Karu's will last twice as long so your getting what you pay for IMO.
THE VIBRASHOCK IS BACK!!
