Kopper's Crawfish Crank Review

Recommended Posts

I have fished this bait a few times now and feel a small review is in order. The setup I have been using is a Daiwa Pixzilla (modded Pixy) spooled with Yozuri Hybrid Ultrasoft 6 lb. and a 7' med action Kistler Helium LTA. The color I have been testing is the natural matte. The diving depth is 3-5 ft.

I will say for starters, this bait ran as true as any Lucky Craft right out of the box. The bait also casts like a bullet and will not roll out on a high speed return. I have caught several bass on this crank the past few outings I have been on, including a 4.1 pounder. The hooks come sticky sharp to the touch, they look like VMC's but I'm not sure.

I guess if there was one thing to complain on it would be the finish, although tough, some of the matte has worn off due to teeth marks from the fish. The actual color remains underneath the matte finish, it is just a little shiny now in spots. I would also liked to have seen an oval split ring from the factory for a $12.00 crank. Kind of picky, but I prefer oval split rings.

I will probably be ordering a few more soon, I want to try the deep diver and maybe a few more colors in the medium diver. The natural matte color is going to be hard to beat IMO. Good crank and highly recommended.

Two thumbs up!!

another site is where I found mine.

BTW, the hooks are Daiichi.  No wonder they felt so sharp. ;)

Yeah, me too. I only have about a thousand of "em.

These look so good, I'm gonna have to get a few more.

Thanks a lot Blaine, I really need to get rid of some of that excess cash I have.  ;D  ;D  ;D
