Caught about 20 bass yesterday on an original $3.99 chatterbait. Can't imagine the $15 one is that much better.

The jackhammers I've thrown dont hunt anymore than any other charter type bait? I keep hearing that the jackhammers hint... I haven't seen it.

The question i have is how did SK get around the blade to jig (no split ring) deal?

Yes they are if you feel like paying more for a better bait.

I just bought several Strike King Thunder Crickets and they are well made as well and a little cheaper.

Have not had a chance to throw the TC's yet so I don't how they work yet. fish

Jackhammers are worth every penny & the only one I tie on with money on the line.

Wonder why you rarely hear the pros say I caught them on a jackhammer? Usually they say caught them on a "bladed jig"!

Many of them aren't sponsored by Z-Man, thus they use the generic term 'bladed jig" instead. Otherwise, if it's a sponsored bait they will specifically say what they are using.

Anyway they do seem to have a little more hunting action and harder thump. Beside the upgrade components I am not sure they produce significantly more bites for me. It may not make much difference for most folks out fun fishing. However, for the pros a few more bites could make a huge difference. Either way, it's all about confidence. fish
