They are a great product but I was very dissipointed when I could no longer purchase them in larger packs at a lower cost so I started to look someplace else for a cost savings

Heavily salt covered, nicely made, classic tubes. These are great if you've got some really meaningful bass in your lake, but they are pretty large baits. Think about the "Bass Teaser" tubes if there aren't some real good size fish lurking about -- those are slightly more manageable in size. Cast great with a decent jig head, and they catch fish! Think about a tube jig with a 1/4 oz weight!

Tubes are one of my favorite baits to throw. My dad has been using them since I was a kid and it rubbed off on me. I have 3-4 go to baits when the fish are not biting and tubes are one of them.
I ran out of the ones dad had given me about 10 years ago. No idea what brand but they were blue and black and they worked. I was looking to replace them with something that was almost identical. I was looking for a very soft tube with a blue tail, black body and some black and blue flake in it. The tail needed to have lots of action and I wanted it salt impregnated. After looking around I found the Black Blue Pepper bass pro brand.
I was very impressed with these when I opened them up. Very good price and there were a total of 10 in the package. Quality baits with large quantities that are low price is hard to beat. The bodies are very soft but yet still have enough stiffness to last a few fish. The tails looked thin at first, but after pulling and using these tubes, they are very durable. I do a lot of cast practicing in the yard. I have thick Bermuda grass which can tear baits up. These tubes have lasted several practice sessions with out any legs being ripped off or bodies coming apart.
I was very impressed with the amount of different colors Bass Pro has with these. You can get just about any color you need for your waters. I love the green pumpkin and blue/black pepper for central Oklahoma dirty waters.
I have been using these Texas rigged with a 1/4 and 1/2 oz weight and also stuck them on a 1/2 oz swim jig. This makes for a great swim bait. Just bounce your rod tip when retrieving for a bait with alot of action.
If you want a good quality plastic bait that will last, give these a whirl.

Sure you can. If I understand what you mean, then your talking about the color numbers on the chart at the top of the page right?
Look at the chart. The item number on the far right, next to "Quanity" and above the "Add to cart button and price) There will be the item number. Now look at the last two (Or somtimes 3) numbers of the item number. This represents the number it is color charted by. Look back at the color chart, if you see you were correct... You found the color.
Just like how color 01, is pearl silver flake and it matches with both the picture and the same number is on the chart and the last numbers of the item#
Why are body lengths so inconsistent for Texas rigging with a 2/0 gamakatzu off set round bend hook. Because hook point sometimes winds up coming out in tenacles and cannot be used in weeds that way. Will we ever see body lengths longer in tender tubes? I am entering and exiting tube correctly with hook. I really enjoy using these fish catching tubes Texas rig.
The tender tube is a bit shorter than some other tubes out there but that's because it's more of a finnesse bait . Try rigging them with a Slider style jig head , it has caught me alot of fish . I've been fishing this tube for a long time and I have not noticed the consistency problem with body length.
I know what you mean, I use a 2/0 bass pro superlock hooks, but i just strecth it out and its a good fit. bass pro superlock hooks are smaller than the others. use it Texas RIgged WEIGHTLESS and you wont be sorry you ever tried
There are several other types of hooks and sizes that will work as good if not better than your choice; try Shaw Grisby's HP hooks with the wire clip in 1/0 or 2/0; Owner Rig N hook; KVD's NEW tube hook; your problem solved
A simple fix that I do is just select a smaller size hook. I know that is hard to do in some cases because of habit, but I have caught smallmouth on hooks smaller than my pinky nail. 1/0 hooks rig well with these tubes.
