Almost the only thing I use
I surfcast in the NYC-LI-NJ area, beaches mainly, a few rock jetties. Also fish in Martha's Vineyard in August, beaches. The Bone colored Waxwing (size: Boy) has probably caught me over 50 fish in the last few years. Mainly school stripers, but also a few keepers. Also I've caught blues, albies, mackerel (in Maine), flounder and sea robins on this thing, everything hits it.

It has an amazing waggle to it, swims about 2ft below surface on a regular retrieve, and casts exceptionally well on my 9' surf rod. I fish during dawn, day and dusk, not a night guy, so maybe that's why the Bone color has worked best for me.

I also love the double-hook, it looks like a tail, helps with the waggle, and doesn't get messy like a treble can when unhooking your fish.

easy casting lure with good swimming action
So easy to use and control the action! Shimano lures are the best! i would hope to have bigger sizes and heavier weight for GT casting.

Great top water action
I fish these every where I go from Mexico to Costa Rica and San Diego , I've had luck with bluefin , dorado and yellowtail under kelp patties These things just work ! I've had luck fishing these things at different retrieval speeds all with the same great results !
ProsFish will hit these things not so much the color but the nice swim pattern they have .
ConsPricey !

Looks aren't everyting
If I didn't know better, I would think this lure is a gimmick, but it really works! Took a couple of Waxwings on a recent 8-day trip out of San Diego. The yellowtail jumped all over them.

Lt eye feel
Love the action of the lure, made five cast from the surf on a Sandy Beach and the left eye fell off. Casts well for my 8 and a half foot IMX surf rod however a bit disappointed about the durability of the product.
ConsIf you're paying over $14 for a product that I should at least stay on for a season. Considering I was casting from a Sandy Beach everything should have stayed on and the construction of the lure should have held up for at least a season. I just wasn't expecting and I to fall off it after 5 casts

Nice Lure
Tried it a few times for Blues, Mackerel and Tarpon but have not had much luck with these. Maybe I need to give it a few more tries before putting it away for the Surf
