Got some of these from TW but haven't gotten them wet yet. Looks like a cross between an blade bait and a lipless
crank. Would be interested in hearing from anyone who has tried these out. Lots of reviews on line but I suspect
many of these are pros giving favorable reviews because rapala is a sponsor.

Looks like a good lure but I have not had any luck on a lipless style crank bait in a while.

Thats doesnt look like a lipless crank, but rather a blade bait typically used in very cold water. Silver buddy was one of the popular early ones.

A good rule of angling philosophy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.

Essentially a rattle trap with a couple of bigger fins on top and bottom. Have caught a few fish with them. If they had a larger size i'd throw it more. Ordered mine from Tw last year. Look cool online, just too small and only offered in one size last time i looked.

I have used lipless crankbaits and bladed baits. This is a hybrid. It has a metal "frame" with plastic bodies adhered to each side. For me, without a bill in the front, it's a lipless crankbait.
