XCalibur XCS Square Bill Crankbaits
Great square bill
Well I am quickly becoming a square bill crank fan. I have used the 1.5 and 2.5 for awhile and always do well with them. I have always changed the hooks on them however. Finally I saw these Xcaliburs and thought well I know I won't have to change the hooks on those. Probably the fifth cast with one of these and it got slammed by a largemouth on a cold/bluebird/windy day. Needless to say I have picked up several more. They have better finishes than strike king, come with an oval split ring, and the hooks are sticky sharp. I haven't lost one yet and bounce them through tons of rocks, laydowns, etc. Great lure.

awesome shallow water crankbait! they run true out of the box, cast a mile, have super sticky hooks, and great color selection. i really like the new sunfish colors. i have caught fish on these when i couldn't on many other shallow water baits. i have replaced all my norman fat boys with these.
i'd also like to take a second and give two great big thumbs up to bps customer service! i just received an order in the mail today, and an item was left off. this is the second time this has happened to me, and when i call in, they offer to resend that particular item. no questions asked. to me, it speaks volumes when a company acknowledges a mistake and makes up for it without any trouble. thanks bps!

I have 5 of these in foxy shad, citrus shad, oxbow, foxy lady and rayburn red. These baits are excellent and carry and excellent price tag as well. They cast great, run true and have a perfect wobble. My only complaint is that the front hook tends to get caught on the bill often when casting, but this can be remedied by downsizing to a hook one size smaller without sacrificing hook-up potential. The stock hooks are excellent in that they are black chrome TX3 and don't need upgraded (aside from the aforementioned) like some other brands. The textures and paint jobs are on par with those from Lucky Craft and Spro, yet at half the price. Hopefully Xcalibur will put out some medium/deep divers soon. All in all, these are an excellent buy!!

Best square lip ever
This bait is the best square lip bait on the market. I have been shallow brush piles and giant lay downs. The bait comes through brush extremely smooth and snag free. The paint is durable and the bait runs true out of the box. I would recommend this to my best friend without hesitation.
