I fish it, monster smallies. 4 pounders.
I have always been curious about the crawfish clacker, but just can't seem to find many people that have fished it....

The craws look cool but i decided against them since it looks like I'd lose it within 10 minutes on the river here.

The Frog: The action "looks" awesome and realistic. Unfortunately, the blow-ups have been on the landing after a cast (which in my mind, the bass would have hit almost anything that hit the water). I have not had any strikes as I've worked the R2S frog, whereas, I've have plenty of success working a Spro or Madd Maxx. If I lost the R2S frog, would I buy another? No. I will stick with the other hollow-belly frogs.
The Craw: I have NOT mastered this lure. I've tried to use it like a jig with no success. In the swimming pool, this things falls at various angles - landing on it's back 50% of the time. Hopping it and stopping = twists and turns. I've tried swimming it and it twists and turns as well. I was using 50# braid. I bought the earlier version that did not have the weed guard. I'm disappointed at this point, but I had very high expectations. It's made with high quality components - I just haven't had success. If a jig bite is on, it's hard to tie something else on to try. As far as cranking, I can't imagine ripping it through grass or weeds when a square bill, wiggle wart, or lipless crank can do better.
