STORM Kickin' Slab
I wasn't really impressed with how this ran out of the box, and like the other reviewers had mentioned, if you cut the top and bottom to allow the body to swing freely it makes a huge difference.
This is a great LOOKING lure. Storm really knows how to make lures that appeal to fishermen, but I have several of their products, and let's just say they are not my "go to" baits in any situation. Again, this is a great looking lure.

Poor Performance in Murky Water
Might sound a bit strange but this bait is not for our waters. It should be used in clearer water, not the stained mess we have here. Not to mention the lure doesn't perform very well and takes some getting used to. Since it does not have any vibration or flash and makes almost no noise it is hard for fish to find. Ths bait would work better with a chug bug type lip instead of it's current setup. Mine performed best with a medium-fast retrieve on a Falcon Crankbait rod.

First off, I am a (relative) novice when it comes to fishing; I will buy lures because they 'look nice."
I bought 4 of these, 2 each of the crappie and sunny for me and a friend. I was DISGUSTED by their action on the retrieve, there was no action, just a straight pull.
Before I threw them out, I got a filet knife and sliced thin strips off of the slits on the body, and I made several new ones near the tail.
The result: The most beautiful bait I had ever seen swim, oh, and 3 Northerns in a couple of hours.
I also noticed that, when trolling, even the unaltered baits have great action, but not on standard retrieves unless you burn it.
Overall, it's a great bait that one needs patience on. I can't wait to try the 8" next year!
