These are great. The size is perfect as the summer moves into the later months when the bites are less enthusiastic. I also hop them across the matted top and a big bass will bust through and take it, and can get it into his mouth.
Works great as a Texas rig. I have used these on a drop shot at Table Rock very successfully when no one else could catch anything. My favorite colors are green and the black with blue flecks.
I love that I get 20 per pack, and especially stock up when they are on sale. Bass love them!

I got sucked into the Senko craze like everyone else. I was unhappy with the price of other brands and the quantity.
I really cant tell a difference in feel or action compared to other brands. I do know that fish tear any brand up pretty bad so being around 4 bucks and a large bag helps keep me on the water using them.
If you use the wacky o-rings instead of hooking through the bait itself, they will last much longer.
I have used these wacky rigged and Texas rigged with great results. My favorite colors in this size are Red Shad, baby bass and Blue Flake. Both seem to produce well.

great wacky worm
This is a go to bait in the rivers of western Virginia. Great bass bait, particularly the camo road kill color in 4 1/2" size.

Great lure for SM
I use the 4.25" on a Dropshot for Smallmouth Bass and they nail it.

Dollar for dollar I believe Bass Pro Shops Stick-o is the best soft stick bait on the market. It is far more durable than the Senco, and the cost is almost half. I've been using them for years and have no urge to try another brand.
Disadvantages. Well I have both and while the stik o is more durable I've caught Next to no fish on them. I have caught fish on senkos and it's one of my go to baits if I can't get a bite. And yes I have given the stik os a fair chance. I do not just blindly support Yamamoto. The senkos just better.
T-rigged weightless with 3/0 EWG worm hook; 5/0 EWG worm hook for biggest Stick-Os. Long cast and let it sink to the bottom. You will get hits on the fall. Once it hits the bottom, 2 revs on your reel and let it sink again. Repeat. Vary the speed of your retreive, but I've found S-L-O-W works best..
Texas Rig, with a 4/0 off set worm hook. I Cast it out and let it sink, then pause for a minute then work it back, while twitching and bouncing it. The speed you use will vary depending on the elements.
Texas style w or w/out weight. I also wacky rig them with a 1/0 finesse hook. You can also cut off about an inch of the fat end and rig them with a flat headed jighead 1/4 oz. - Really deadly on smallmouth
I use a #1 Mutu light wire circle hook rigged wacky-worm style (hooked thru the worm right behind the smooth section). Cast them out and LET THEM SIT on the bottom for at least 30 seconds with a slightly slack line. If no bite, raise the rod tip to 12 o'clock, reel in some (but not all) of the slack, then let the worm sit again. Repeat this process of "lift and drop" most of the way back to the boat. Bass will pick up the bait and move off with it, causing the line to tighten. DO NOT SET THE HOOK! Simple reel up the slack and the fish will hook themselves. Fished this way, these baits are bass-catchin' magic. (Shhh. Let's keep this a secret.) :))
