BPS Sticko vs YUM, durability only

Recommended Posts

Can someone please help me classify the Sticko durability?  I havent used them before.  Thanks.

 

Durability:

Senkos = very poor

Sticko = ???

YUM = very good

 

Sink rate:

Senkos = fast

Sticko = fast

YUM = slow

 

Cost:

Senkos = 88c each

Sticko = 37c each

YUM = 31c each

 

Wobble:

Senkos = very good

Sticko = very good

YUM = fair

I'm curious too. I replaced a pack of Senkos with them in my day box, because Senko's disintegrate as a hook enters them, it's absurd.  I'll open them up tonight and rig one up if we don't hear anything :)

I have fished the Stick O on occasion in the past and found them to be pretty durable.  They are not as soft as the Senko, but for the most part, did a good job catching fish.  I like to worm fish on a bait caster with weightless worms (I know that is not correct) and therefore find the Dinger a little light.  The Stick O zings out there like a Senko weightless on a bait caster.

I have a load of Stick-O's that I bought as a kit years ago.   I use them often and rarely have bought Senkos.  I feel like they are just as durable as YUM.  I've easily landed several fish with one BPS bait.  I'd say I lose them to jumping bass more often than having to throw them in the trash.

The Yum dingers seem to hold up better then the GYS. Just my opinion.

I fish dingers and stick-os and I feel they are basically the same. Durability is good and they both catch plenty of fish. I feel the Gander brand may be rebranded yums and a good value too. I’m still using wave worms and senkos purchased years ago in insane quantities(think dooms day preparation) and use those on derby days. Those both are for sure softer and less durable, with wave worms being the softest, but they catch em when the others won’t.
