I went ahead and bought every color. According to my buddy Phil, I won't be able to fish for 6 more weeks.

I got one. Ice is in though.

Has a real subtle knock to it.

I bought a few and fished them a little bit. They're a nice bait, but mine have a tight wiggle and no "hunting" action to speak of. Supposed to be a wart knock off, reminds me more of a 6A or 7A Bomber. Still a good bait, but not what I was hoping for.

Exactly - the marketing for the bait would lead one to believe that it was a deeper running Wart kinda bait with that nice hunting movement.  I guess I'm not in a hurry to order any of these - it sounds like it would perform similar to my go-to Norman Deep Little Ns...

did you catch any?

Nope but I didn't catch any on any other crank that day either so take that for what it's worth.

i guess spro had to come up with something since mike mcllelland won table rock on a wiggle wart.  Just looking at them online they do not seem to have the same type of body or bill and my guess would be that they will not have the same action.  Seems they have already been tested by bluebasser and he confirmed this.  In this case I am not interested in buying any.

Mike said they've been in development for a couple of years and that he wasn't going for a wiggle wart action. He wanted something with similar profile that deflects off rocks like a champ

I hope it's a decent lure. Spro little johns have always produced for me.

It says right on Spro's website " wide wobbling hunting action". Sounds like that's exactly what they were going for. Regardless, in the case of the ones I have anyways, they are not wide wobbling, nor do they "hunt".

I think it will be a good bait, as long as you aren't hoping for a bait similar to a wiggle wart.

I'm not going by what the website or package says, just his interview with the bait.

I never found the newer wiggle warts to hunt much either but the two have very similar profiles.
