Stupid Cut R question

Recommended Posts

So, I finally finally got into the Cut R worm game after reading enough about them to believe I’ll like them, I’m a fan of zoom ultravive speed worms so I figure this might be a Slight upgrade, anyway the stupid question is this; there is a thin piece of plastic that runs from the tip of the tail to about where the body starts, seems to be an extra, like a left over from the mold. Does this serve any actual purpose or is it just a left over? I feel like it isn’t important, and definitely none of the pictures I’ve seen of the worms have it, but before I take them off I wanted to make sure they don’t have a legitimate purpose

I take them off when I put it on a hook. I think that piece is to help keep them form of the tail when not in use.

The Cut R is a take off of GYCB Cut tail worm. What makes a Rage is the rib to wag the tail faster. The reason GYCB cut the curl tail was to make it wag faster. The original dates back 25+ years to the Kick Tail Action worms.

Hold on!!

That extra piece is as @Dirtyeggroll and @Cattexplained. It is "intended" to be ripped off as it's just there to hold the flanged tail. 

 

But being the renegade I am, I separate it from the tail but leave the end attached to the body.

That thin little piece gives it a little more action when rigged tail down as intended for swimming. 

 

Try it both ways,,you'll see what I mean

Sometimes I leave it attached to the tail 😉
