Bass Pro Shops XPS Walkin' Frog
Like everybody else said, when water leaks in lure is worthless. cap on the back does not seal very well and lure will fill up. Lure worked good until I caught a little 17 inch bass, then lure would not work. There is a happy ending to this story though. Two words: Weed demon. It is made by snag proof and is basically the same lure only more durable and will not fill with water after one fish. I am in no way affiliated with snag proof, it is just that they make a way better lure.

Won't float b/c won't keep water out
I purchased this bait thinking I stumbled upon the best of both worlds, a weedless froglike bait, with the action of a Zara Spook. The problem with this bait is that it will not stay afloat because it allows water in the bait far too easily. When water gets in the bait, it ceases to floats and kind of suspends 6 inches under water. This completely eliminates the dog-walking action of the bait and essentially makes it useless. I tried to give this bait it's fair chance, but after fishing it for 3 continuous hours, I realized there was no way to keep the bait afloat.

Pretty nice... for a few casts
I used this lure less that 24 hours after I bought it and I was impresses, at first. The first cast I made with this lure was amazing, I couldn’t believe how far I cast it. Upon reeling it in I was impressed with the action. It zig-zagged a little made a some nice distortion to the water but I noticed it kept rolling on me. After about 10-15 casts I noticed it's action was less attractive when I finally got it reeled back in I look at it and the rubber piece that acts as a plug near the hooks had torn and water was seeping into the lure causing it to sink. Im pretty disappointed with the quality of this lure. I would suggest something else though maybe spend a little more cash for better quality.

I bought this frog with "I like that theory" in mind. Boy was I disappointed. If you fish this frog in the traditional sense, it will sink. You have to keep the speed up and really work the rod for this frog's action to shine. Unfortunately, the speed you have to fish this frog and the fact that you will have to be on a really, really aggresive bite, will keep this frog in the boat. It will be staying in my frog box, but will probably not be used again.
