Bass Pro Shops Billed Mini-Z9R Swimbaits
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!

I'm going to say pretty much what everyone says. You have to take the back hook off if you want any kind of action out of this thing. I let some slack out of my line and watched the bait in the water before i took the hook off and could see what others were talking about. I took the hook off and casted and caught a fish on the very first cast.
ill probably buy another in the bluegill patter for other water conditions.

Recently I purchased 2 of the mini Z9R billed swim baits, I bought the Rainbow Trout and the Baby Bass colors. I was very pleased with the performance of these lures, excellent motion through the water, exceptional casting distance and the smallmouth bass hit them like a ton of bricks, amazing lure and i would highly reccommend it to anyone who wants to catch a bunch of fish! I will definitly be buying more of these

Lipped Vs Lipless
I tested the mini Z9R (lipped and lipless) vs the KickTail as seen on TV. The Z9R lipped has a lot of action but the frequency of the side to side wobbles are about twice that of the KickTail. The unlipped is worthless. Don't waste your money!!! It tracks perfectly straight even after I took off the rear treble hook. I can't believe they would even market the lipless version as a swim bait.
