The size of these rattles is a game-changer for soft plastics because they do not create a buldge.

Coming in at 3mm x 10mm, there is a huge size difference compared to the competitors.

Also, the Battle Rattles are equipped with a pointed end to easily stick them into a lure.

Here’s the step-by-step process of how to insert the Battle Rattles based on the type of lure:


We used a Slam Shady 2.0 with a Trout Eye Jighead as the example, but you can use just about any paddletail and jighead.

Step 1: Using the pointed end, start inserting right behind the spot where you know the hook keeper will be lodged.

Step 2: Push the rattle the entire way in and then push in the opposite direction to take away the entry spot.

Step 3: Rig your lure as normal with a hook or jighead but keep it pushed away from the rattle.

Split Tail

We used an Alabama Leprechaun here and an Owner Twist Lock Hook.

Step 1: You can insert the rattle at the head or the tail using the same method as the paddletail.

Step 2: Push the rattle the entire way in and then push in the opposite direction to take away the entry spot.

Step 3: Rig your lure as normal with a hook or jighead but keep it pushed away from the rattle.

Power Prawn

The Power Prawn is the easiest one of all because it actually has a rattle cavity built-in.

Step 1: You can insert the rattle into the cavity at the head just above the hook cavity.

Step 2: Push the rattle the entire way in and all the way to the top of the head.

Step 3: Rig your lure as normal and you’re ready to go!

Have been experimenting with the rattles. It’s difficult on slam shady 2.0 because they are slippery. As Tony suggested, I rig the SS 2.0 upside down with groove on top and stick the rattle through the front of the groove. Easier for me.

Why not talk to your friends at Zman about a jig head with rattles. If rattles really work, I’m sure they would be open to the idea

I always have added rattles after a lure is rigged up. It then allows the perfect spot. And I always push it in from front to back. Or front to back at an angle if need be. It allows the rattle to stay in on strong hook sets. The rattle could get ejected if the opening were facing to the rear. IMO. Tightlines!

I’ve been using these for a couple years now in the dark waters of St Augustine – they definitely make a difference. Tough to put into Zman (I use a heated bodkin), and oddly enough, they don’t like to stay in place once there. Great for everything else.

Luke, I make a pilot hole first using the hook point to create the hole/slot for my rattles. It makes the insertion of the rattle much easier.
