Bass Pro Shops XPS Square Bill Crankbaits
ATTACKED BY BASS!
I usually use the KVD Sexy Chad or the other Chad that looks like the Sexy Chad(which catch bass and other fish)when using cranks....anyway, this crank(the black and silver one), the bass was hitting harder than I can recall with the KVD! Like, bamb!!! I caught three in about 10 cast, which is good to me. All I can remember is thinking, they are attacking this crank bait. I got it on sale about 2 months ago for like $3 dollars. Mad at myself for not trying it while they were still on sale(just tried it tonight),I would got more; but they are still a good price at $5.
* It was about an hour after sunset and 90 degrees with a slight breeze and a full moon... fyi

Solid inexpensive squarebill
This lure is a solid alternative to the KVD1.5 squarebill. It does not have the hunting action that the KVD does, but tracks well and has adequate hooks. I still recommend replacing them with the KVD shortshank trebles, but can still land fish with the provided trebles. Wish they had a few better color options, but they covered the basics on this one. The nice part is these tend to go on sale more frequently than the other squarebill options, so can get them at a better price. At full price, go with the KVD's. BPS - add a good bluegill pattern.

As with all most all Bass Pro Shops items the quality of this little XPS Nitro square bill is excellent. The finish is superb the action is extremely tight, with a great deflection action and one of the best vibration feels of any square bill on the market.
As I do with all most all cranks I do switch out the treble hooks for Lazer Trokar trebles, but you most likely could use this outstanding crank right out of the pak. Give this little crank a try, I'm thinkin U will be as impressed as I was.

Very well made
Casts well and has a nice action, but most of all, I was struck by the build quality. For instance, this lure comes with an oval split ring on the nose, which prevents your line from winding up in the "bad" spot where the ends of the wire meet. The hooks are EXCELLENT. I'm really compulsive about hook sharpness and these were perfect right out of the box, which I've never seen before in this price range. Let's hope it wasn't a fluke, because I'm getting more!
