This lure is tops for your money. Caught 12 bass with one lure using the 4 inch RedBone pattern with a Hayabusa EWG Offset 3.0 hook. Largest bass weighed 4 lbs. Lure looked brand new after the twelve bass except for the area where you initially thread your hook in the front flat area. This area was deteriorated from the 12 bass caught and numerous yellow perch and bluegill attacks grabbing it from the tail. Maybe a drop of super glue will correct this minor issue. Pop ShadZ are easy to cast even in the wind and stay in the upright position during retrieval no rolling at all. You can pop it which creates a good sized disturbance or you can walk the dog with it. Gave one to friend to try who was not a topwater fan and two days later he was blowing up my phone asking where he could get replacements fast . Told him to order more thru Discounttackle.com great prices, good selection and fast shipping. ElazTech material is awesome and super durable just be careful to keep them in their own packaging to prevent any adverse actions with other brands' plastics. Use ZMan products almost exclusively now. Great fish catchers and more economical than other pricier brands in the long run.
