I would give these swim baits a 5 star rating but they are not very durable. You can expect to replace them on a swim bait weighted hook or jig head every 25 - 50 casts. Especially if you are skipping them under docks or tree limbs. However, I have experienced more bites with these than any other swim bait. I use these every time I fish at least for a little while. They will catch every species that eats shad. I have caught drum, smallies, and many, many, many largemouths on them. every thing from 2lbs to 5lbs. I have also caught more 3-4 lb fish since I have been using them. I absolutely LOVE them.

Not a bad design, but would like to see paddletail option applied to the Stick-0 design - much like the SwimSenko from Gary Yamamoto.
The PTS design is not as effective as anticipated.

I got these on sale and were a great buy. The tail doesn't swim as well as Zoom flukr jr. I would buy them again on sale. At regular price I would choose Zoom. Doesn't work well with wide gap hook. Use a standard hook size 3 for best results.
