    Anyone used one? Was looking at them and did not know if it was real gimmicky or not.

    I was looking at it and there is a snap/wire on the blade... is that where you run the line onto or is it there to make it chatter?

    BRIAN I HAVE USED THEM ,THEY WORK REALLY GOOD AROUND GRASS . TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION THE WIRE IS WHERE YOU TIE YOUR LINE .TRY IT SOME TIME AND LET US KNOW YOUR RESULTS (WORK IT SLOW LIKE A JIG)

    I know guys who have had some success with it. I personally have not used it b/c there friggin' 8-9 dollars a piece. From what I understand they are just fishing it like a spinnerbait, working it kinda fast where you can see the bait and then giving it the occasional twitch. One of my buddies actually made his own out of some old aluminum and a regular jig head. He catches fish on it, but I wouldn't be able to make one like that.

    Its new and a little different. It will catch fish. I have a friend who designed the one Lunker Lure is selling and he has won several tournaments with it. It is a slow action bait. Works best aroung grass and wood. PS. It can be worked fast also.:smile2:
