Strike King KVD Perfect Plastic Finesse Worms
Shake it! Shake shake, shake it!
I'm a fan of both Strike King and Zoom but I get my plastic worms exclusively from Strike King. This worm is pretty good when t-rigged with a worm weight and a 1/0 hook, the tail floats a little, giving it a pretty nice action. I find that if you cast these out and shake/twitch them on the bottom back towards you with occasionall pauses they get fish. I tried these out today and while I wasnt getting bites on any other type of bait this caught me one. I also love the coffee scent its a nice thing to have on your hands vs any kind of garlic or fishy scent. Also helps eliminate the human scent.
I only gave it 4 stars because these arent as durable and dont float as well as Strike Kings 3X Finesse Worm. To me that is by far the perfect plastic worm. This is a close second. While the 3X lasts all day (I've caught 8 bass on one worm, regularly, would be more but by then I usually get my hook back with the worm missing after losing a fish, fish really love these haha) this only lasts 1 or 2 bass before it tears.
If you prefer pre-scented baits (or just like the smell of coffee like I do)get this one. If you prefer to add your own scent get the 3X (I add Bang assassin garlic to those, slays fish)

KVD perfect finesse worms
Having fished with many other coffee scented worms, I decided to give the "perfect finesse" worm a go. Won't suggest what color to use but can tell you both the 5 and 61/2 inch worms are terrific.If there is a down side to the product, it's the fact that they are a bit fragile. The worms pull apart easily. Came off the water just a short while ago. Caught 21 keepers in a 6 hour fishing day on the tidal river. That last statement, alone, speaks volumes for the fish catching capability of the KVD perfect finesse worms. As the old commercial said, try them you'll like them!

I picked up a package of the 6.5" finesse worms at the BPS in Fort Lauderdale when I visited Florida back in February and caught a number of bass with it every time I hit the lake. Caught all of them rigging it wacky-style, the bass just loved it.
I picked up a package of the 5" in the "dirt" color when I got home (which strangely BPS doesn't carry) and it's worked great Texas-rigged on my spincast gear. I can get it into the weeds and bass just devour it.
Great worm, as others mentioned I'm not sure about the "dead-floater" option it says on the product description as it does sink and it's slow sink-rate with fluttering action on the tail is what I think makes it such a great lure. I'll be ordering another package from BPS today!

Great soft plastic
I used these on 3/32 oz jig heads and they are undoubtedly the best finesse lure I have. If I am ever stuck without a bite, I pick this bait up and can always catch a couple fish. The only thing I can complain about is that it's impossible to rig on a shakey-head because it's SO durable. I used this lure to sight-fish for GIANT smallmouths. Every other lure that I tried broke in half because they would get only part of it in their mouth and I would break it off. But I could catch many fish per bait on this one.
