Bass Pro Shops XPS 5-Piece Topwater Kit
Best deal in all of fishing!
I recently purchased this kit mainly for the slim dogs it comes with, and let me tell you. I would pay the $16 this kit costs for one slim dog. These things walk incredibly easy and well. I think it has to do with the fact that it doesn't really "cut" back and forth in the water. It has a little bit of a glide/drift to it which makes it pretty easy to get the things going side to side almost 180 degrees. On my third cast a bass jumped completely out of the water for this lure, but missed it. The cast after that the same bass did it again but the hooks set, and held on tight. Amazing lures, and worth the price. This kit is a must have.

Super Value for Great Lures!
I had purchased a single Slim Dog a few weeks back, and unfortunately lost it on a laydown that I couldn't get my boat to in order to retrieve it. So, I knew I wanted to buy a few more and found this kit, complete with two Slim Dogs in white and silver/shad, along with three poppers. The price tag on this would easily be 10 bucks more if you bought all of these baits separate, and like many have said the two Slim Dogs alone make this kit worth the buy. I fished a Slim Dog right next to my buddy using a spook, and he was very impressed with how much better the action is than with the spook. One of the best XPS lures available, bar none!

I purchased 2 of these for gifts. One kept them the the returned them for different lures. Apparently I don't know a top feeder from a bottom feeder.. I still think they are a good value. I always find great deals there and online.

Good Set for Topwater ACtion
I purchased this set for a friend so he could enjoy the late Summer topwater bite. I've bought many of these lures separately, so this kit seemed like a logical, economical choice. The poppers seem to get the most action and the lighter colors are perfect for that early morning fishing trip.
We fished these on 6' Medium Heavy rods, with 10# XS line and caught numerous bass and chain pickerel. A good purchase all around.
