I am trying to remember the name of the company that Bill Wilcox uses for his chatterbait trailers. They have the design as the keitech swing impact fat, but i don't believe that is the brand he uses.

I know he uses their swimbaits, but I thought he used another company for his trailers. Or if he does now, who did he use before?

Probably Kicker Fish-No longer in buisiness. I believe you're referring to the Tail Slapper- I bought a mess of those @HookSpit when they were on clearance. I think you can still get them on EBay

Yes you are correct. I will probably open up a can of worms, but do y'all brands with that body style, ringed or rubbed, however you want to call it, have the same action? Is one better than the other? Trying to find a new one since kicker fish went under.

Bass Pro Speed Shad is similar and Keitech is always good (just the regular, not “fat”).

A little more subtle are the Havoc Grass Pig and Grass Pig Jr. The one I used a lot when they first came out is the LFT Swimmin Slug. Again, it's for a more subtle presentation
