Tru-life question

Recommended Posts

I was really interested in getting one of these until I went to my local BPS and saw them in person.  They look a little cheap and the hooks are very small.  I might get one if I could put bigger hooks on it and not adversely affect the swimming action but still I dunno if it justifies the $20 price tag.  Anyone try swapping out hooks?  And anyone have any info that might sway my opinion?

The bait is absolutely tiny.I cant see needing the hooks any bigger.Its a crappie lure :;)

I can't justify a 20 dollar price tag except that the swimming action is truly exceptional.Bigger hooks might throw it of balance.

It sure does swim well but it is very small.  I put one next to a spro BBZ-1 4" and it looked like it could eat the the tru-life.  A bigger hook may throw it out of whack too.

I think the amazing action will make up for the size, plus I fish up north so that's about the size of the baitfish. so it works for me  ;D

The size is one of the selling points for me....around here in KY it's a good day with 3 fish over the size limit....and some lakes are almost impossible to catch fish that size consistently.  These baits are small which makes them better suited for my local waters.

even in florida I dont have a problem witht he size, some of the biggest fish ive ever caught have come on small crankbaits. but the slow sinker don stay down which is a little frustrating.

I was surprised at the size also.  We're still iced in, but I'm hoping that it is everything that all the rave is about.
