Bass Pro Shops XPS 5-Piece Minnow Kit
Great kit for the money
I have purchased these individually and use them trolling for striper and halibut in San Pablo/San Francisco bays. They silver/blue back is awesome. I have caught striper, halibut, and snagged a large ray with this color. I bought the kit to replace the one destroyed by the ray. I caught three stripers on the silver/chartreuse/red this weekend.
My only complaint is the hardware. These are probably great in fresh water, however, the hardware doesn't stand up to saltwater fish. The hooks are good for one fish and then have to be replaced with 2X or 4X saltwater hooks and split rings.
If BPS could upgrade these to a saltwater version, they would run circles around the Bombers.

these are really nice they swim pretty good i changed out the back trebble and put some flair on it can it kicks out better i guess thats the only thing i can saw sorta negative but thats a personal touch you can do if you want i used buck tail and flair so it pops back up and kicks hard but yea its a really good set caught like well over 20 -30 tilapia and bass and gar on them there good and durable

cheap gap fill in your kit
I bought these a while back and never had much reason to use them.
I've used them now, fish eat them.
I haven't used much of the competition, but I can tell you these filled a gap in my assortment for a price that was hard to resist.

I used these in the saltwater not freshwater and they still worked great. Trolling them slowly works great for catching striped bass.
