Slit On The Back Of Plastic

Recommended Posts

I totally get why they have slit on the bottom side of the hollow berry swimbaits. But I do not understand why some of them, like, KVD Perfect Plastic Swim'n Caffeine Shad,  have them on the back. Why do they do that? I actually find this is very annying that when I t-rig with point buried, hook point tent to come out easily, or back of the bait not being straight. Do you guys find this slit on the back usuful?

It targetsn the perfect rigging and makes the hook weedless. I think the slots are a great idea and

appreciate them being incorporated on some of the new Rage Tail Baits, too!

they do it so you don't have to skin hook the point into plastic. great in theory but the problem is after a few casts the plastic is water logged, the holes loosen and the plastic slides down the hook during a cast=exposed hook.

 

just skin hook in the bottom of the 'reservoir' or the wall of it.

It keeps the hook hidden and provides a guide for dead center rigging, so yes, I find it useful. ;)

On the caffeine shads, isn't the slit on the belly? 

 

The swimming shad has a groove in the back.
