Sk Elaztech Plastics

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me an idea of how durable they are? The finesse worms in particular. Comparable to Robos or Berkley Powerbait Hand-Pours for example.

It is almost garunteed that you will go through a whole bag of the other plastics before you go through 2 of the 3X finesse worms.

I agree. Its the only brand I have used that one worm lasts multiple outings.

There's really no comparison, 3x plastic is virtually indestructible B)

Equally important, Elaztech is also the most buoyant plastic available to anglers.

Used as a bottom worm, the 3x finesse worm rises boldly upright off the bottom,

eliminating the need for a shaky-type head (any head or bullet sinker will do)..

You'll love em, man. The Finesse worm in the larger size accounts for a large part of my annual catch numbers.

I have been fishing the same 4" SK 3x finesse worm on my drop shot rig for 2 weeks, if rock bass can't tear them off nothing will.

The crawfish are very very durable and yes they last after mutiple hits

Dang, these things sound like they might be as good as the old flying lure lol.

Hooli- I always go with the larger 7in. finesse or trick worms to. They seem to net more weight for me + you can just bite a 1/4-1/2in. off after each catch if needed.

The only disadvantage of the 3x is that they float too high sometimes. I have had to go to a 1/4oz shakey to get them down. Then again, the only one I've fished that is that bad is the Purple Haze. Dirt, Easy Money, New Money, GP, and Coppertreuse have a permanent slot in my bait shed.

One of my best topwater baits is a 3X tube, t-rigged, on a 4/0 EWG hook, with no weight. Not so good in open water, but is deadly in weeds and brush.

I didn't know that SK still makes them? Where are you guys buying them? I love them on drop shot.

BTD, TW, and BPS all have them.

I always liked their fluke style bait. It floats so its just like a weedless walk the dog surface bait, rather than a normal fluke that sinks. The zero is also pretty good. Its not as durable cause its loaded with salt, but still alot more durable than any other senkos. Just don't put them in a box or bag with any other plastics cause they will melt together.

Love the Z-Too. One of my favorite fluke style baits. Can use a 3/0 superline hook

for casting distance with heavier line and it still stays near the top.

Zero's have a habit of floating after a while. Maybe due to salt leaching out.

Super Finesse worms in 7" are super versatile. Cut to length. Don't overlook the Lizard for a steadily dragged Carolina rig.

Just got them in. LMAO they are just like Invizx, you can take a piece 7 inches long and stretch it out to 4 feet. They do feel really strong though. About to go let a few Kentucky Spots chew on one for a while and see just how tough they are.

Crazy isn't it? I love them so much that I found a store here was discontinuing them and I bought everything they had in the colors I use. I just don't ever want to be out of that series of baits. I might literally cry if that ever happened.

I have a ton of these baits because a while back wal-mart had them on clearance for like .25 a pack. I really like the fluke type one, the Zero, and their ribbon tail worms. They last forever and the worms stand up nicely on a texas rig. I have some lizards and craws but I have never used them.

Man our Walmart never stocks anything good like those. They only have like 4 SK spinnerbaits, 3 or 4 different stickbait colors, 1 color in rage tail shads and frogs, 3 sexy shad colors in the Red Eye Shad, and 3 or 4 KVD square bills. It sucks.

These things don't play well with screwlocks like Keitech Tung footballs and Picasso Shakedown/Footballs. Bigger screws like on a Megastrike Evo2 work okay but are still a bit of a pain to get it on.

Heat the metal corkscrew with a lighter. ;)

I wonder how long it would have taken me to think of that, if ever. Thanks.

BTW- Do you know if putting them in hot water will straighten out bent ones like other plastics will?
