Head Types

Zacatak Lures are available in three different head types - Soft Skull, Hard Head and Xtreme Lumo. Despite some theories that hard heads weigh more than soft heads, this is not the case for Zacatak Lures - each of our head types weigh exactly the same and the swim action of each lure is not affected by the choice of head type.


Faster hookups with a realistic baitfish presentation!

Let’s face it, billfish often like to play with their food before they eat it. The softer composition of our Soft Skull heads offer a natural feel that won’t spook those feisty fish who refuse to take the lure on the first attempt. And by the way, we’re not talking gooey soft - just slightly less dense than their Hard Head cousins! Soft Skull heads are a must-have for easy handling when switchbaiting and using lures as teasers. With a crystal clear colour-tinted design, paired with luminescent eyes featuring the Zacatak Lures logo, the Soft Skull head option is our personal favourite!

A tougher option, perfect for toothy pelagics!

Preferred by many game fishing ‘traditionalists’, the theory with hard head lures is that attacking game fish will more easily slide down the hard shiny surface of the lure, onto the skirts and over the hook. It could also be argued that hard heads are more durable and less prone to being scratched or cut by toothy pelagics like wahoo, mackeral and dogtooth tuna, maintaining their clear finish for longer. With a crystal clear colour-tinted design, paired with luminescent eyes featuring the Zacatak Lures logo, choose Hard Head lures for strength and longevity.

Increase your strike rate with maximum visibility!

We could talk all day about how our Xtreme Lumo heads stimulate the biological triggers in fish, and how our high-tech glow additives increase your strike rate when light is at a minimum. But to us, it’s pretty bloody obvious that a luminous lure will be easier for fish to see at night! You’ll also be chuffed with the results just before daybreak and on overcast days. Even on a bright sunny day, UV rays will charge up your Xtreme Lumo head making your entire lure glow like radioactive candy! With a solid yellow-green head colour, our Xtreme Lumo lures are available in a soft head only.
