Should've been a 3 and half star rating, but 4 will do. Its not a 3 star because it catches fish, but the finish does not hold up well and starts to bubble and peel after a couple outings. Hooks and all metal components start to rust quickly, even if rinsed in fresh water and dried. Metallic color worked best for me during the fall run a couple years ago. Lure has good action and appearence, easy to match the hatch when baitfish is in the 4-6 inch range and silver or white in color, but I prefer a Atom Striper Swiper instead now. Its also a subsurface popper, it is not a surface popper, so it is meant to sink after the pop or when sitting still.
Pros:Casts well and can match the hatch.
Cons:Finish bubbles and peels after a couple outings and all metal components rust quickly.
