Strike King KVD Perfect Plastics Ocho
A lot of people tell me that this style of worm is for follow up to smaller bass. I like to use them on hard days and I don't consider anything over 4 pounds small, but I suppose there are less difficult waters where that may be the case. I have used Yum, Yamamoto and other Senko type worms, and have great success with basic mixes of either watermelon or green pumpkin with red flake. The Ocho offers a little bit different action and feel with its eight sides, it still cast well and they have a color called big texan that kills for me in Florida. It's not just a follow up down here some days. On difficult days its one of my go tos, either wacky, nose rigged or texas and I have caught bass exceeding 6 pounds on all approaches. I like the big texan because it has both the red and orange flake. Its difficult to see in the online catalog pics but check them out in a store sometime.

Coffee is Served!
This is another good product in the caffeine line of scented baits. I have used the shad and it has a nice swim to it especially on the XPS 5/0 weighted swimhook. Colors are on the money, but they do seem lighter in weight to me than Senko or the BPS Stik-O, but the coffee flavor makes up for any less salt they may have.
Durability is why it only rates 4 stars from me. If you are in a tournament, you might want the extra edge these can provide, but for everyday bassn' I think Yum's Dinger has good scent and softness, but also much better durability at about 2/3 the price.

I love using senko's but the price is a little high, so I saw these an got a pack a few weeks back and the action is incredible. They have a lot more action then Senko's when used with Tru Tungsten Flea Flicker JIg head and have a little more durability than Senko's. Don't get me wrong they do rip but not as bad as others and the 8 sides is great for Texas rigging when the end rips you can just turn it to another side. Also buy a o ring tool and use o rings it will make a pack last a whole lot longer. Try these out and you will be saving money and getting better action!

Great wacky worm!
I had read some hype about these on a fishing forum and I just had to give them a try. I picked up a package of watermelon/red flake and took them out today. They are a very soft plastic which in turn results in more action. I definitely feel that they provide more action than the more expensive Senkos. Along with the softness comes a reduced durability. However, there is a quick and simple fix for this! The O-Wacky tool is a must have for any wacky rigged worm. Overall, these worms are another great product from Strike King.
