Bomber® Model A™ Real Craw
My favorite Crank
I'm willing to bet, that over half of all anglers in the country have one or more Bomber Model A's in their tackle box. The Sunrise shad is one of my favorites. I like them so much, I usually end up buying one each trip to my tackle shop to stock up. Of my top 5 favorite baits, the Model A is one of them.
These are one of the best medium diving cranks on the market. The are very loud and have tons of action. I am shore bound, so having a quality crank that is not a deep diver is great.
I have never had to tune any Bomber crank to make it run true. They are perfect out of the box. Packaging is great and allows me to hang them on the peg board. I haven't had any trouble with paint flaking, chipping or cranks taking on water.
These are a great addition to any anglers tackle box. If your just starting out, these would make a great starter crank.

Seeing as how bomber has discontinued all my hot baits in the B02 depth range,I decided to give these a shot even though I can only get 10 yds of line released behind the boat to troll for saugeye in these 6' and if the lake is full,7' depths.
The Sunrise Craw is absolutely killing them in the propwash. Okie craw is great at times. Hooked a 11 pound 31" flathead catfish on the mossback craw. Also catching the usual channelcat,crappie,and whitebass just like my old 02's.
TX3 hooks are super sharp even after 40 toothy saugeye nailed it.
The finish seems like a rhino finish.It's holding on very well whereas the old glossy finishes are in shambles if I can keep from losing them on stumps.

Rough Textured Finish
Just so you know, the Real Craw has a gritty textured surface. I don't think it feels like a Crawdad, but I'm sure the rough finish would hold attractant well.
I like how these swim. I recently caught a 30 inch pike on the larger baby bass pattern model A.
