Scum Frog Popper, I've tried others at 4x the price with realistic taxidermy quality eyes etc. but I have caught a lot more fish on the Scum Frog Popper. When you are in the right area they will hit it nearly as soon as it hits the water.

Spro popping frog. Been the best for me so I have the most confidence in it which means I throw it more. Learn how to replace legs and hooks and get plenty of life from it. Coach

Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

Spro or Booyah for me. They both create a similar presentation and I've already boated a lot of nice fish with them this year.

I have some of the River 2 Sea popping frogs that do well too, but they have their place.

I finally broke down and bought a SK Popping Perch in white/silver, but just tied it on last night so I can't comment on it yet.

Let us know if the Popping Perch does anything better than the frog. I have watched several videos on the popping perch and have heard all about how it was designed and all the pros input into making it but have yet to hear how it is better for catching fish than the frog. I haven't even seen anyone catch a fish on it yet after watching 4 different videos.

I've fished a lot of frogs and have never been completely satisfied with any of them. Won't turn over, fills with water and sinks, won't hookup.

At Academy I bought a few of Booyah frogs. One in the large size and two Jr's. Flip right over, don't sink, don't get water in them and I have actually caught some bass.

I am impressed.

Last year before they were on the market I fished with a buddy that had a couple. He kicked my butt out of the back of my boat with it. He got bit on it when other frogs would not work.

I can't find the episode, but there is a Fishing and Hunting Texas with Clark Wendlandt episode where he fishes with Todd Castledine on Lake Naconiche that aired a few weeks back. They fished it all day. Very informative episode where Castledine talks about the PP and why they designed it

I will go against the norm here and say that I personally prefer a Ribbit frog made by Stanley Jig Company or a similar soft plastic top water frog. Maybe it is just because I am much more confident with them, but it seems that I have a much better hookup ratio and the fish seem to like them more in my opinion. I very rarely have a fish swirl and short-strike when a soft plastic frog is tied on. When rigged properly they won't turn upside down and there is no way for them to take on water. Plus when they are reeled constantly the legs make a great kicking motion. They cost a little more, but even just the confidence boost is worth it for me. I still fish a hollow-body frog some, but rarely.

Booyah Pad Crasher or the Koppers Live Target Hollow body. Yes the Live Targets are more expensive but I've had tremendous success with them.
