  S150X SandViper Xtra (Shallow)

Shallow water special
SandViper Xtra is built to generate hot action in skinny water. Its unique shape, wake-the-dead rattle, and rock 'n roll action are fatal attractions for surface busting predators of every kind.

Indestructible, luminous bib
SandViper Xtra is HEAVY DUTY. Big hooks and a guaranteed unbreak-able bib. Most colours have a luminous (glow in the dark) bib. Colours BJ, BM, RH, and RR have a bright red bib.

Day or Night
Since 1996, Predatek's Viper design has taken thousands of trophy fish around the world. The SandViper variant hunts the skinny water and silhouettes against the surface in moonlight or bridge lights where big fish lurk.

Cast or Troll
SandViper's aerodynamic shape and weight are great for casting. It slow dances to a Striper, Tarpon, Snook, and Barra beat, or tracks at 7 knots behind your boat to excite pelagic game fish.

Maximum Hook Exposure
SandViper Xtra looks like a fat baitfish, but when fish hit the tapered body it's all hooks - two big 2/0's - strong and sharp!

(3 x #2 hooks as per standard Viper are available on S150 model)

Rock 'n Roll Action
Combines a tight wobble and rolling movement for a fluid, weaving action. Twitch, rip, or swim it - and hang on!
