Z-Man RaZor ShadZ Review [Top Rigging Tips & Underwater Footage]
By: Tony Acevedo on November 5, 2018
The Z-Man RaZor ShadZ swimbait is a popular soft plastic lure on the market right now.
This lure has a segmented tail which allows it to move more freely with some good action than other lures can.
It is an inshore lure that is best used when rigged weedless or on a jighead. I personally like to rig this lure on the Owner Twistlock Hooks in the 1/8 oz, 4/0 size.
After using this lure for a couple months, I wanted to give you my unbiased opinion of it.
In this review, I show you my top pros for the Z-Man RaZor ShadZ. I also show you the best rigging tips and what this lure looks like underwater in a video review in the article.

Top Pros Of The Z-Man RaZor ShadZ
In this section, I go over my top pros for the Z-Man RaZor ShadZ, which are:
1. Good Action
The design of the segmented tail on the Z-Man RaZor ShadZ gives the lure some extra kick and movement when it is being retrieved in the water. The forked end and segmented tail really allow the lure to swing back and forth more so than other lures that are of similar design.
The Z-Man RaZor ShadZ is made out of the same ElaZtech material that all Z-Man lures are made out of. This material is extremely durable and stretchy, which allows these lures to be used multiple times without breaking down. They’ll also hold up well against pinfish and pufferfish that love to eat and ruin soft plastic lures.
3. Upright Position
The Z-Man RaZor ShadZ floats when it’s rigged without a weight, which gives it an advantage to soft plastic lures that sink. When rigged on a weighted hook, the lure will be taken down to the bottom but will sit upright in a resting, natural-looking position. Fish love the way this lure can be presented to them and will usually strike it just after it’s been twitched from that bottom resting position.
Z-Man RaZor ShadZ Video Review
In this video, I give you my full review of the Z-Man RaZor ShadZ. I also show you the best way to rig this lure and what it looks like to fish in an underwater demo.
This a unique soft plastic lure that has some added benefits. It has been a great lure for me to target redfish with and is strong and durable.
While this lure is not perfect and won’t work in every inshore fishing situation, it is also very versatile.
