Mann's Tiny 1-Minus Crankbaits
Almost the perfect UL crank
I've used all of the 1-minus series cranks and caught a lot of fish with them all. All of the pros are as most reviewers have already stated so I'll save you the redundency. The only problem with this one is that even though the bouyancy is floating it has a very slow sink (similar to a rapala finesse minnow). It's not the end of the world but a lot of the time I will fish floating hard baits on the surface with a long pause and a slight twitch to immitate a dying bait fish on the surface. The other problem is I get a lot of hits after an erratic retrieve while I let it slowly float to the surface. You can still get similar hits on the fall but I don't feel it's as effective.

Mann's Tiny 1-Minus
I used this bait in a local pond on a summer morning and it did quite well. You really do not have to add much action to this lure, simple start and stop retrieve will do the trick. The only real disadvantage of the Tiny 1-Minus is that it can require some tuning but i guess that goes for a lot of crankbaits and other lures. Overall I am very pleased with this little guy and the fish it can produce.

Great for panfish
Been using small crankbaits for panfish lately, and this is my new favorite. Very good lure, and the best thing about it... It's made in the USA!

This smaller version of the 1- Minus works just as well as the big one. This crankbait is great for small lakes,
