So life-like if fools frogs!
There are other frogs out there at various price points. I have tried several of them. In my experience nothing has the action, durability and hook-up ratio of the spro line of frogs. Often a little bith more money, but well worth it.
I have used the popper and regular Spro Jr with great success over the past two years. When things are dead calm, I will go with the Spro Jr. If there is a little breeze or minor chop on the water, the additional action of the spro popper frog is just right. I have used the popper frog on calm evenings and had good results, but I always believe that the more life-like you can go, the better the chance for a strike.
The popper walks-the-dog better than the regular spro or spro Jr. I always add a medium 'O' ring on the front of the bait as it really helps with the walk the dog action, plus with a quick 'pop' you can make the frog spin 180' - often triggering a strike.
I suggest braid for any frog fishing. If you are having trouble with hook-ups, try counting to three before setting the hook after a blow up or suck down. Also braid will help with the hook-ups.
If you are having trouble with the walk-the-dog, you probably arent allowing enough slack in the line - you need a fair bit of slack to make the bait walk.
This bait is very addictive - it's hard to go back to other baits after you get the hang of it. The spro frogs are also very realsitic - it even fooled a bullfrog in my pond, just look at the attached photo.

Have used Spro Frogs before, but never the poppers. This is an outstanding soft bait that is easy to use and really produces. On my first outing for large mouth bass with the Spro Bronzeye Popper in Black I had two trememdous strikes. Unfortunately, I missed both fish by not giving the fish enough time to inhale the bait.

Brother has this and it works very well. Have not had a chance myself but am going to try as soon as I get to some heavy grassbeds.
