Bass Pro Shops XPS Enticer Spinnerbait
I picked up three of these last month to try them out on these upstate NY bass and they work great
Some other spinnerbaits I've used will periodically catch the wind and helicopter out on the cast causing backlashes, but these XPS Enticers throw like bullets.
They hold up great and to date my best Northern bass on this lure was a 4.5 LMB I caught on day 3 of the 2010 BASS Federation Nation Eastern Division Championship on Candlewood Lake.
If you want the most bang for your hard earned dollar the XPS Enticer is hard to beat.

They did such a great job building this lure, down to the beautiful finish, and the perfect combination of blades. I get twice the hits on this spinner bait than I do on any of the others that I have. My one complaint is that they went cheep on the wire. That may be why it is so affordable, but I would gladly pay 2 dollars more per lure to have a reliable wire. I can only catch 2-3 bass before the wire breaks on me. So far I haven't lost a fish, but it scares me when I am in a tournament. I have gone through 16 in the last 2 months. If they didn't work so well, I would have to stop buying them, but the risk of breaking is worth the pay out.

Compact smooth action!
I bought two of these spinnerbaits in the 3/4 oz size to try. I had envisioned slow rolling the bait along creek channel edges and deep water humps. However, old habits are hard to break, and I was soon throwing one into grass, bouncing shallow cover, and banging into everything I could find. It performed flawlessly, and the compact profile helps it to pull through heavy grass. It is easy to cast in strong wind, and makes for a great reaction bite when allowed to drop into cover. So far, the painted head and eyes have held up to the punishment. The balance seems to be just right for any speed retrieve that I have used. Also, the quick change feature on the blades works well, although I haven't changed the sizes yet. It just works well right out of the package.

For tough conditions...
I used those spinnerbaits for 2 years now, and these are my "tough conditions spinnerbaits".
They are compact, really well made, and offer a smaller profile regarding to their weight, than other spinnerbaits.
Their profile makes, accurate and quiet presentations, very easy.
Try them in shad or chartreuse/white color, when fishes are chasing on small preys, or when they are spooky... And be ready to set the hook !!!
