Bass Pro Shops Billed Mini-Z9R Swimbaits
Not for the money
For $10, I would rather spend it on a couple packs of soft plastic baits, even if they were a generic brand. This bait did not live up to its expectations. I envisioned this bait consistently catching bass, yet I've had it for months, and the few times I've used it, it's only caught me a few fish, none of which were a decent size. This bait chips and the fins' colors wear away unbelievably quick. This bait however has incredibly movement. I would not buy this bait again. This is not my type of bait. A friend of mine picked up this same swimbait and loves it. To each his own. Not my type, buy you'll never know for sure 'til you find out.

Similar to the action of the Live Pointer, but ..
I have heard and read a lot of negative comments on this bait, but I believe that they are the result of wrong expectations, not a poor bait.
I have been using the Lucky Kraft Live Pointer for some time, but they are expensive, fragile, very fragile, and they are very expensive. Did I mention that they are fragile? LOL
This bait has all of the action of the aforementioned bait, but is much stronger. Keep in mind, it is designed as a more subtle bait then a lot of "swim baits", but given what it does, it is perfect for those days where you need life like action, but not too much action.

skeptic becomes a believer
I am from georgia and I have been skeptical of swimbaits since I first saw them. I broke down and bought two of these yesterday at the basspro in Atlanta. It swims great and looks really nice in the water but the real test of any lure is whether or not it will catch fish consistently. I took it out this afternoon and the bite was slow I threw it out and first cast I caught a 3 pound bass. Then on the 4 cast I caught a 7 pound bass. this lure is awesome for the price and now Im thinking of buying some more expensive swimbaits the lures are pretty amazing.

Realistic and pays for itself!
This lure is very realistic in the way it looks and swims. My Brother was talked into buying one (the yellow one with the brown back) and pulled it out when we were shore fishing. After a few casts a huge 18-22 pound pike hit it! It was an intense battle and it gave off some huge head-shakes and tail-wips. It didn't give my Brother any line and ended up snapping the 15 lb. line. Nevertheless we are impressed with it. It's a fun lure to use even when there's no fish biting! Everyone had to try it out!
