I have been having good luck with different types of frogs lately and wanted to give these a shot. They are always well praised by Bass Pro employees, so I gave them a shot. After its all said and done, these are kind of a hassle to rig, buy and fish.
I was told to buy the dual screw hook to fish these. After looking at the price of those hooks, I was kind of turned off. I thought I could save money using these ribbit frogs over top of the standard plastic top water frog. In the end cost was about the same. I saved a little money buy using a single 5/0 wide gap hook, but its just not the same as the dual frog hooks.
I do have some positive things to say about them though. I use garlic scented oil for most of my plastic baits. These frogs were covered in it. Garlic is my favorite for covering up my scent and attracting bass. Frogs are well built too. Very strong and hold up great. With that said, these are very heavy. If you plan on using them with an ultra light or light weight rod, do not use a weight. The frogs themselves are plenty heavy. I have been running them on a 7' MH rod with 30# braid and they load and cast very well. The legs of these frogs have paddles and give them tons of action.
Probably my biggest complaint is that they are not great top water baits. I use top water about 75% of the time fishing. With a good high speed reel and a continuous retrieve, these will run the top pretty well. Any pause and they sink fast. I have never had good luck with frogs underwater. If a dual top and bottom frog is your choice, these will be great for what you need. If your a top water frog person, I would try something different.

One of the Best Frogs on the Market
I caught my first (frog) bass with a black Stanley Ribbit. I've caught my 2nd or 3rd biggest bass from a local lake on a Catalpa color Ribbit frog. I've seen my fishing partner, hammer a 4 and 5 lb bass on a Ribbit Frog. I've watched him catch 9 bass on a black Ribbit. It produces numbers and size.
