Bass Pro Shops XPS Custom Spinnerbait Blades - Willow Leaf
TOP Quality Blades!!
I can't say enough about these blades...flash, finish and overall quality, they just seem to feel NICER in your Hand. You have to see them up close for yourself. Very NICE!!
If you were to test them on side by side and size for size next to comparable blades...
For example, say 3.5 xps vs 3.5 common every day blades, It feels to me that the xps blades give off a TINY bit more Thump. But that isn't a problem at all. You just adjust the size appropriate to your S.B. Head wieght and fish accordingly.
A Single 3.5 on a 1/2oz SB with a trout color skirt is my goto configuration. You can burn it or easily fish it count down to slow roll deeper. It's caught many Great Bass for me.
Wind is your friend when SB fishing and you can bet i'll be throwing XPS somewhere when the wind is blowing.
They work Great for me!!

Excellent buy! These XPS Blades are thicker and have an excellent finish! The blades have a mirror finish that really produces an excellent flash! You almost have the best of both worlds with the willow leaf blades, they create a little bit more "thump" with the same flash as a thinner blade! If you lose a blade, don't pass these up for replacements, they are worth the money!!!

Feel the difference
These blades are awsome! (4.5 willow). I apply them to all the spinners I purchase. They fish fast like willows do. But feel like colorados. The best of both. You can feel the reason the bass can't resist. That advantage of something different. Its in my bag of tricks. Now you too can apply it to yours.

I swap out several spinnerbait blades every season and switch to a #7 willowleaf on them. I have yet to this day caught a small bass on them...every bite is a big fish. Get your camera out when using big blades because you are sure to be holding a big bass soon enough.
Check your drag.
