i tend to think it is. Did ya see how the hooks seem spring loaded and pop out when the fish mouths the bait? Id like to see how long, or how well, that actually works.

I saw the same thing in a magazine a couple months ago. Most of the reviews said it was a "piece of junk and a joke to the fishing industry."

Did you see how the hooks pop out when pressure is applied, as soon as that thing gets tangled in some hydrilla and you pull hard here comes the hooks. What a joke and $20.00 no thanks

Plus, why does it have to look like a torpedo? haha. For $20 they could at least make it look like a real baitfish for Pete's sake.

While I have fallen victim to other infomercial lures before I am not falling for this one.

Notice they don't say anything about manufacturer of the hook, it's size, etc. Another problem is bite appeal. A bass has to eat it first. I'd think a bass would have to be nearly starved to take it. I'd rather spend the Jackson on a Pointer if it all had to go to one lure.

Anybody need lessons how to go weedless on the cheap? :D

When i first saw this thing a few months ago i had a vision of somebody(probably me) managing to set the hook through my finger...possibly "fingers". :shrug: Dave

People say they have found bottle caps, coins, all kinds of odd and assorted junk in fish's stomachs. I have yet to put a treble on a quarter. ;D I think I'll save that 20 for a megabasss anthrax lure.
