Durability and Soft Plastics aren't synonymous for successful catching.

Zoom products are the ones I use, the fish like them and I catch bass with them.

Durability and Soft Plastics aren't synonymous for successful catching.

Zoom products are the ones I use, the fish like them and I catch bass with them.

Exactly, That's why I eluded to that I also wanted Durability in a soft plastic right after Action. Zoom is a really good brand but they haven't really made what I'm looking for in a creature bait. Good solid plastics though for me.

Being a budget fisherman, I want to get the best possible deal for the price i'm paying. If one is going to end up paying 4.5-10 dollars a pack for 8 or less soft plastics, Then it would be nice for them to hold up a little longer.

If you are fishing a tournament, where you are fishing by the clock for speed and and a quick bite, Then I can understand paying that much per pack. But

if you are a free-time fisherman, It can add up pretty quickly.

I mostly like to target bigger fish when I use Creature baits; so, I like bigger and more durable plastics to scare off smaller fish and hold up against numbers of fish that aren't in my Target weight class.

For Example: El Paca craws are great but you can only get 1-2 fish out of them. It's not worth it if your fishing a pond with a high population of "Smaller" aggressive fish or you fish quite frequently throughout the summer months.

So, That's why It's nice to have a more complete balance between durability and yet, still having a killer enough action of the Soft-plastic. You get the best possible deal that includes both aspects you find valuable in a product for the price for quantity.

A lot of this is dependant on what your goals for that paticular day. Some fish for Numbers (eating, tournament, Mutual competition with friends, etc), Some fish for a specific Bite, That would indicate a bigger class of fish Some are just looking to have a great time fishing and don't care regardless of whats on the end of their line.

I will jump on the bandwagon and say Zoom Baby Brush hog is the best for me in terms of durability and catching fish.

I would also add that the Zoom Super Hog is nearly as good. Same length as the Baby Brush Hog, but it is a bit thicker and has a more beaverlike tail.

The only creature bait that catches more for me is the GCBY Flappin' Hog, but they fall apart if just you look at them funny...
