Bass Pro Shops XPS Crazy Bug
The good news is it caught fish. The bad news is that this lure does not retrieve very well being cranked fast. It tends to turn over. The worse news is that the rubber legs pull out too easily.
The lure looks great... tantalizing in the water, but if it doesn't have its legs, it's disappointing.

Good lure could be great
I've been trying to buy this lure ever since it came out. In spring it was never in stores ( at least Detroit and Toledo) and was out online. I finally found one in August and was very pleased with it. It caught a lot of fish but it could use some improvements. The split ring where you tie the line on have a tendency to stick to the eye or your line ends up in between the ring causing the bait not to run straight. This was probably the issue with previous review. The hooks are not very strong. I had a small Pike hit it and it straighten the hooks out. I have since ordered more of these and made the modifications myself and have been extremely happy. I hope they will make this bait in a bigger size because it truly looks like a crayfish coming through the water.

Fish catchin' machine
I bought 2 and after fishing them I bought 10 more for an even dozen. All of them ran perfect right out of the box. This thing looks just like a craw in the water with the legs folding back when cranked and popping out when stopped. I was throwing it on 10lb test and it seemed to me to go about 10 to 12 foot deep. Great wiggle and it even had the hunting action when it would bounce off of structure. Very similar to a wiggle wart action. Maybe cabassin was using a snap or had bad line twist but my ran perfect.

These lures really work great! I agree with one review that I read before my purchase.........you need to replace the split ring with a smaller split ring where you tie on because there is not enough clearance for the stock split ring to move freely. Other than that minor set back, this is a great lure to add to your box. I hope the manufacturer fixes this one issue.
