Are these pre-rapala wiggle warts? A friend sent me this and I don't know much about them

@Bluebasser86 is better at this than me, but the text on the bottom of the bill is the tip off.

The old warts have "Wiggle Wart" molded in the underside of the bill and the oldest have the name Wiggle Wart on the side of tail end. The box of the older warts has a bass inside the O in StOrm, Rapala has a lightning bolt inside the O.

Rapala marketed their warts as "original" Wiggle Wart, they are different, run true and a little heavier. 

Just from the blue mackerel color and markings I would say those in the photo are Rapala colors, but there was a lot of older wart colors available.

Note: Major Craft Zoner Hunter is equal to older Warts and availble from TW, if catching bass is the goal.

Update: I think they're "Brad's," some knockoff

They look like Magnum Wiggle Wart molds, however those paint jobs are not Storm/Rapala factory.

Brad's wiggler usually were for smaller baits. What do they say on the underside of the bill?
