Needles come in a useful smaller size with enough weight to still cast well and fish in more than just calm conditions. Sometimes elephants eat peanuts, but unless only targeting trophies, the smaller profile can help catch when fish are finicky and reluctant to commit or predominant bait is smaller. Good standard color selection and finish seems pretty good. Not to my liking, was that the triple wrap split rings as equipped do not turn / spin freely in the hook hangers. Yes they're strong but the hooks almost being fixed in place inhibits the swimming motion (not necessarily that much in a needle)and provides leverage for big fish to straighten hooks or otherwise free themselves. As the other commenters stated, swapping out for single tail hooks or replacing the split rings with something more size appropriate but still strong, will fix this issue - and most big bass fishermen are used to altering and upgrading hard-ware on many plugs anyway.

After adding a little "buck-tail" I couldn't miss....change the rear hook to a single and add the tail made the difference. This lure does exactly what it is suppose to...CHATCH FISH. Go with it and enjoy your catch.
