I think tackle world is flogging them aren't they?  Pretty cheap finish and look overall, casts and makes a splash but I wouldn't be stocking up on them.

I don't have an issue if people wish to use these lures, however, I have a particular dislike for manufacturers that have no respect for other manufacturers original designs.

Personally - newbie or not I don't see why you would bother with these lures at all.

I agree with Travis. They're not exactly the best produced looking lure around. They can't even copy a lure properly, I'm not sure the wiring is great and I wouldn't trust the components like the swivels. At the prices of these lures, stick with lures like Herus. In fact, I'd recommend the R2S Dumbbell or Halco Roosta over these.

They have a couple of lures which I am certain noone has ever tested as they're just ridiculous.

I saw them online last night.

My first thoughts were they looked pretty ordinary and I reckon your money is better spent on other poppers like Brandon suggested.

Hey Nathan, do you have a photo of a bug in a fishes gob?
I could never get the metal skirts to flutter, they always dug in and it wanted to dive no matter
how high I held the rod.  ;D
