It's wooden if it's 10 years old 5 1/2" model. The plastic Sell Cracker G2 models are 4" and rounded as I recall.

You should be able to tell by the sound it makes when you tap it. Plastic sounds hollow, wood is more of a thud.

Nice find the wooden Shellcracker is no longer in production and highly sought after lure.
