Overall not bad...depends a lot on the model. Chinese made so they're low cost...hooks not so good. 2cents

The baits themselves are ok but the hooks are bad.

I here everyone say hooks are bad and cheaply made and so on... I've caught many fish with them. Is it the only brand I use of course not, but unless you fish large tournaments or semi pro these baits will catch fish just as good as any other. Think about what crankbait hooks were like 30 years ago... Just saying

Hooks are vmc on most I think. Some of them I'd put against baits that cost 3x as much.

I mention the hooks because I have broken the tips off of them.

well. That sums it up. I have broken two VMC hooks in the last month. Not dulling them. !m
BREAKING them on fish. Lol. Guess the H2O are good, except the hooks. Lol.

I agree that the hooks aren't the best, but they are good for a few fish. They are usually toast after a good day of catching, at which time I change them out with triple grips. Catch H2O on sale regularly for $2.99 - that's hard to beat. They have that erratic side to side action I like, while running straight, overall.

I'll use them stock for fun fishing, but change the hooks for a tournament. I've had a few break but doesn't bother me if they don't count.

Been using their squarebills for years. One has caught more total bass than I can count plus several 8+ lbers @ Falcon and still sits on top of the tackle box(we all get our favorites & hate to retire them).

The wake baits are fish CATCHERS!
All species. They work great for Specks & Reds also. Caught 4 Specks over 20 inches this morning and a huge Ladyfish on the Lush color. Agree on the hook swap. Most stock hooks are junk anyways.

^ this The shallow cranks "wake bait" are the real deal. Have caught a lot of bass on them and have never had problems with the hooks. H20 brand is great when you don't want to throw your more expensive cranks in stump fields.
