Good lure with bad hook
This is a great lure for use in low or no light, tinted or muddy water. That's the good news! However, you must re-sharpen the hook after several cast and it does'nt take long until you have no hook left to re-sharpen. During the night, I have caught many Large mouth bass on this lure. To me, its worth the hassel and cost of re-sharpening the hook.

Good components. Ran true. Looked good in the water. Used on one night so duribility to be determined.

Oh the Good and the Bad
Ok I really like Strike King's spinners but this one has upset me just a little bit and it's not that the fish didn't bite it. The first one I bought the blade flew off and thought it was just a fluke but I got another one and after a couple catches the hook really dulled quickly. Maybe it's just my luck I don't know. But the bass love this lure I actually had 2 in the same trip literally jump out of the water to catch it in mid cast right before it hit the surface. But like I said the hook dulls easily and you have to sharpen it. Happy fishing!

This is by far my favorite bait of all time. I have caught more bass off of it than any other lure. They work in all conditions, you just have to adjust your presentation. (blue and black) If I can see fish on my screen around structure but can't get them to bite it's what I put on. I like to use it as a flutter-bait around lay-downs. It gets bit when nothing else will.

I cast and let it drop to the bottom, then as I start to reel in, I give a long pull on my line to make sure the blade is turning. Retrive slowly and the blade will start to thump. At any time the blade stops thumping - Set the hook.
Well before I lost this lure I fished it like any other spinnerbait except I fished it slower than slow. I really wanted to feel every thump of the Colorado blade. I didn't really get to test it in night time, but I did catch a nice smallie in the late afternoon, early evening hours on the chartreuse color.
Cast it out in and around any kind of structure and just reel it back. You can feel the large Colorado blade spinning as it heads back in. The vibration of this spinnerbait is excellent and the best thing is it catches fish.
