Brent Chapman, the current reigning B.A.S.S. Angler of the Year, believes in them and uses their plastics extensively. I think the people who developed the product believe in it too. If they are correct about the bass ability to see UV light then maybe they are on to something. I bought a couple of the products two or three years ago and the action of the baits didn't thrill me; however, I haven't used them enough to give them a fair review and there may have been changes since then. I have included a link to their website below.

What little information I could find seemed to be pretty similar to your results. I did see a video on youtube that demonstrated the difference and theer was an obvious one. Whether or not it makes a difference bass fishing is anyones guess.

I tried using pop-r's at my local park, until I saw a guy catching some medium size bass after only being there for about 15 minutes. I found out he was using a crawdad or beaver soft bait. I went out to walmart last night and picked up the only beavers I could find. They happened to be that UV tightline stuff but I've never heard of it and seeing as how I saw how reactive the fish were to beavers at the local park, I figured I should buy em. Plus, a 5 pack for around $6 isn't too bad I don't think. Tried out the new gear today and the fish were biting pretty quickly, I mean like first 10 casts. The only problem is I couldn't set them, they might've been too small or it's more probable that I'm just a total novice at fishing. Anyway, after about an hour of trying these UV things out I pulled out a smaller maybe 8-9 inch bass lookin fish. After a few more tries I packed up and went to another pond by my house. By this time it was pretty dark out so I figured if this UV trick worked, it would work best now. After about 45 minutes of no bites at all, I finally pulled up a good size bass (for me, at least); probably a good 13-14 inches.

 

I read up on UV Tightlines and apparently no one believes in them at all and thinks they're a gimmick, so I figured I'd try to help anyone that is looking for a little more information. I love fishing but I'm a terrible fisherman, so I think for being pretty bad at fishing, I did pretty well with these lures.

 

 

I caught the first one on the watermelon-ish one and caught the bigger one at night on the blue one (sorry for the terrible picture quality).

My experience is that their beaver baits are good. Esp the green and Blue colors. One weird thing, though. I only caught small fish on them, nothing over 2 lbs. Got plenty of numbers, but not what I usually get on a flipping bite. Switched to another company's bait, and got bigger fish, but less bites....

Thatxguy - the fish in the top pic is a rock bass.  Pretty common in northern waters but they are never very large.
