The larger Xcalibur Zell Pop is the best I've tried so far.

Rebel 3" in silver black or Hula popper Ghost Dog. I just love the wide mouth and the big bloop from the Hula but Rebel is great also.

Rebel Magnum Pop R...3" and 1/2 oz of heart-stopping, bass-thrashing action.

Xcalibur Zell Pop by a mile for me. Chug bug and Skitter pop are a distant 2nd and 3rd.

All it takes to get a strike is a ripple, I've had bass hit top lures while they were stationary and I was getting a windknot unraveled. I've had snook hit top waters lures just from the surf pushing it around, I use the identical lures for both salt and freshwater. They all work, I don't have favorites. As of late I have been using nothing but poppers, I either use a 1/2 oz poppa dog or a 1 oz Storm Chug a bug depending on my rod selection, I buy these 2 because they are real easy to find.

I've had good luck with a cheap H2O express bass colored popper. Seems to work better then any other one I own for some reason. Before I tried the H2O espress one my favorite was a Zell pop

Rico and Rio Rico. Sure can't justify the price! But after catching dozens of fish on them that wound heals pretty quick.

Definately the Rebel Pop R, then the Rapala Skitter pop.

Both generate heart stopping strikes

Hands down, the Storm Chug Bug is the most versitale popper out there. You can pop it or walk it.

I bought a chrome shad colored popper from Walmart and it has done dirty work. I also like using the Spro Popper frog in Black Widow outside of heavy veg.

Yellow Magic & larger Zell Pop when I walk or skitter & stop the bait. The old Excalibur ( discontinued ? ) when I want to fish slow with that Bloop sound. Since my current obseesion is over size lures I picked up couple of large 6-7" poppers to expieriment with next year.

megabass pop max

This. I've caught fish 17:1 with the Popmax versus a very good friend whom is a very solid angler fishing a Pop-R. It may take a ripple, but fish show a preference time and time again. Anything that ups my chances of taking home a check... well, that's what I'm after. The Yellow Magic is a super bait, too.
