Does anyone use these for smallmouth? They're getting pretty popular with the walleye crowd and I've used the Pulse-R paddletail and the ringworm on the Fox River in Green Bay. I recently tried a ringworm on a regular ball jig and got some smallies working it through the rocks.

Been using them for years. Great bait and kicks a lot at slow speeds.

I really like the Pulse-R and Moxi for river fish - smallies and walleye.  I don't use them in my local lake because the dink largemouth rip the tails off so easily.

I don't fish anywhere with dink largemouth, just hammer handle pike. Is the moxi worth trying? Or really that much different than the pulse-R or ringworm? Overall I'm trying to only focus on baits that are pretty versatile for both species and ways to fish them so that I don't end up buying things I never try or only work in one spot at one time, etc.

I think the Moxi is great for "cross fishing".  To me, it's sort of a hybrid of the classic twister grub and a ringworm.  Having said that, I have not found that it is any more effective than the Pulse-R in my experience.  It may hold up to punishment a little better than the tails of the Pulse-R, though.  The Moxi is a little long for smallmouth where I fish them, so I chop the body down a little bit.  In my local river, they generally shun most baits over 3".

OK I'll stick with the 5 colors of Pulse-R I've already got. I might get another one of the ringworms since I've only got one. The tiny curly tail I think is a lot more subtle. It got me my PB walleye in tough conditions on the river last year.
