Bomber Fat Free Shad Deep Square Lip
I have the 1/2oz. 6-10ft. model in Dance's Pearl. The most amazing thing to me was how it deflects off both deep and shallow cover. The square bill seems to slide around rocks and wood and just keep coming, or if you stop it after a crash, it will back out and quickly rise. Many good cranks will do that, but not many big bill cranks will be so forgiving. You can work it fast or slow, in water 3 feet deep or get it down to about 5ft on 12# mono, maybe 9ft trolling. I'm going to try the 10-14ft. size next.

Runs true and seems to bounce off submerged limbs better than same size deep divers

A must have for serious anglers
I purchased this lure several weeks months weeks ago but due to conditions was unable to get out and test it. I got on the water this weekend and got the chance. I had rough conditions and the weather was inconsistent as were the fish throughout the majority of the day. We passed over some submerged structure before we pulled out during which time I was able to pull out two back to back fish in different depths, one was just over two pounds the other weighed in at four and half pounds.
I ran the crank through rocks repeatedly but the bill didn't break or crack as some will though the paint did come off in about an area on top of the head about the size of #2 split ring . The only concerning that I had was the hooks. While they exceptionally sharp, they bend under the stress of larger fish or snapping the lure off of rocks.

The Bomber Fat Free Shad Deep Square Lip has real good action. The square lip really bounces off underwater structure and keeps the hooks from hanging on grass. i can really control the depth and fill the lure bouncing off grass and stumps. I caught several good black and kentucky bass with this lure.
