outstanding!! I had the chance to meet Elite Series angler Boyd Duckett a few weeks after the 2011 BassMaster Classic. I asked him what lure he used to catch his monster bass on the final day, and he said the pit boss. After that I gave them a try, and I'm so glad I did. I caught more bass on the Pit Boss than other soft plastic I flipped or pitched all season. It is an outstanding bait! It slides right past heavy vegation, and it has a great action. December 27, 2011
Not too durable I have used the green pumpkin with nice results. I have caught 3 bass and one pike with this bait. I rigged it weedless on a jig head and a weighted hook and use it the same as swimming a jig. I also retrieve it med/fast as a top water frog and then let it sink for a few seconds,then start again. I gave it 3 stars because of durability. 4 fish and 3 destroyed baits,glad they are inexpensive but should still last longer. July 1, 2012
Pit Boss Great Bait! I've been slamming bass on beds with this bait! Black and Blue Flake hands down my favorite pit boss to throw. May 6, 2013
Havoc Pit Boss Outstanding Flippin action in shallow water. If you have not tried these yet your missing out! Excellent soft plastic. The bass here in Florida love them. Hook them weight less and flip them into the thickest weed patch you can find and hang on, Ol bucket mouth will take it for sure! May 8, 2012

A: 
Hi, thank you for your inquiry. This is a bit hard to answer because they both would work great. It would depend on what the fish are biting in your area on that day. You might order both and test them both out. It is always best to have options since the fish do not bite the same thing every day.

You can use it weightless and cast it out and let it sink and then just twitch it. I just casted it to isolated cover like stumps branches weeds and leaning trees and used it like that and caught several nice ones.

A: 
Generally more natural colors such as green pumpkin, watermelon, and summer craw will be more effective in clear water while brighter and more solid colors (electric blue, junebug, black/blue) will work in a stained water situation. I use the Pit Boss for flipping and pitching in thick vegetation and have found that color is not a big factor in that situation.

Sorry. I can only say what works on the lakes here in Missouri.
Table rock lake is a deep clear lake.
Some timber, rocks, and several coves.

Stockton Lake is mostly shallow. Lots of timber. Not so clear in most places.

My color is watermellon seed for both these lakes.

I really like the action of this bait on any jig head or a weighted hook rigged weedless.
It works very well with all kinds of retrieves.
The downside for me is that they aren't durable enough.
