STORM Arashi Silent Square Crankbaits
Bought this in the Black Silver shad and used in a local warm water inlet from a power plant that is fished heavily and a 3.5 lb largemouth slammed it. Another big bass broke me off and immediately went and bought another. Would definitely recommend purchasing this crank! Runs true straight out of the box with no tuning needed as of yet.

Caught fish on it the first two trips out with it. First time was not a "crankbait day". Hooks are solid, but would do better with a shortshank KVD Triple Grip. Great color schemes for clear water and some great options for dirty water. Swims well. I don't know if I buy into the self tuning line tie, but a thicker line tie definitely ensures it won't get bent as easily. Really wide wobble that helps catch fish. The two sizes don't look that different, but smaller size should do better with smallmouth and spots. The "3" is comparable to a 1.5 and the "5" is comparable to a 2.0 or just under a 2.5. Casts very well.

All the features B.P. talks about are all here, one thing I like I've never heard anyone talk about is, when I use the 03, I'm fishing really shallow water around grass and I can let the bait float up a bit if I'm caught. I caught about 15 fish with it first time out and not a scratch on the paint job, MUCH better then Strike King's paint... then again every company's paint is.

The Storm Arashi silent square bill crankbait is excellent. No tune up is needed out of the box. The circuit board lip and paint can get beat up after banging it into rocks and wood, but that is after doing it for hours. This lure is perfect in clearer water and high pressure conditions, when the fish have seen and heard regular rattling crankbaits zoom by. The lure has run straight for me after many hours of use. The hooks are sharp right out of the box. I would highly recommend this lure.
