I throw a Texas rigged craw a lot. I like the durability, size, and presentation of the GrandeBass craws but which manufacture makes the best lifelike craw?

Big Bite has one that looks good. Doesn't appear to be or feel durable. $6 per 4.

Huddleston reviews aren't good.

Z Man Crawdadz have good reviews and the baits aren't that high compared to others.

Savage 3D craws look fantastic but don't hold up according to some guys. Not worth the money is what I've heard.

Which manufacture am I forgetting? Thanks for the input.

Storm used to make an awesome one but I can't find it anymore, really depressing. I throw Paca Craws almost exclusively now, aside from that old storm craw they're they best I've ever thrown.

I've been fishing these on a Shakey Head recently. They make great finesse jig trailers as well, and the Watermelon Pepper Orange Tail on a craw colored bladed jig is a great bait in early Spring. Good luck!

I have never seen a craw fish flapping his pinchers as he moved. I too have got caught up in the flapping pinchers. But we use to catch plenty on craw worms that were just a pincher shaped and did not really have much movement. The Yamamota craw was my favorite before the craze started.

I like the Gene Larew Salt craws especially in the color below. I use themon a shakey head, T-rig, C-rig, and sometimes jig trailer.
