Comments: The STX is my go to jerk bait here in Va.. For the price its a slam dunk even though you might have to change to heavier hooks. I put a feathered treble on the back hook and it suspends very well when using 10 lb. fluorocarbon. I stay with the larger size here because of all the pickerel you have to contend with.
From: Bryan: Poquoson VA 2/13/17
Comments: I'm pretty disappointed. I really liked the looks of this, and bought two. The bill broke for no apparent reason on one, and the other just doesn't dive at all. It is like two feet down at the most when I work it even on lighter fluorocarbon. I can get a fluke down better. I am going to have to stick to the KVD's or the McStick. Both much better products for me.
From: Zack: West Virginia 2/8/17
Comments: Let me start off by saying that the STX casts very well & is a solidly built bait for the price. However, it simply lacks the refinement that a vision 110 has. It is not quite as crisp when twitched, doesn't hunt as far to the side & it doesn't have the same rolling, true burn that the 110 has. It will definitely catch fish but the megabass outfished it 2:1 from the same boat. Definitely a good backup option to have though!
From: Nick: Thousand Oaks, CA 6/17/16
Comments: Compared these head to head with the 110 this spring. Did just as well with the STX. No issues with the hardware on the STX either, but I bent one of the hooks on the 110. Colors aren't quite as nice on the STX though.
From: Chris: OH 5/3/16
Comments: Fantastic, they suspend perfectly and move nice, i love using it too catch pickerel they never fail to catch. Only thing is that the hooks suck and bend really easily
From: Danielson: CT 3/20/16
Comments: I love the bait, it cast well and fish certainly will strike it. Hooks and split rings need to be changed out because big fish can pull free from the standard hooks. I have had my best success with French Pearl and Steal Flash.
From: John: Rockledge, FL 7/19/15
Comments: It's paint job isn't considered the greatest because your comparing it to the greatest but these are not all that bad compared to other brands we buy and with a great weight transfer system, action similar the 110 and the confidence to throw just about anywhere these lures have a spot in any anglers box unless you're a bait snob.
From: Jeff: Dallas, TX 6/5/15
Comments: It is NOT close to the Megabass 110. Well, it looks like one, kind of, but that is about it. If the rip bait bite is on, they'll eat this (and all the others) but if they get picky, the guy throwing the 110 is going to smoke you. Truth hurts.
From: Jay6: USA 6/5/15
Comments: These just simply catch fish and a lot of them. Yes the hooks and split rings need an up grade but it is worth it IMO. I use a few different twitch baits and I always seem too end up eventually putting one of these on through out the day.
From: Bill: WI 5/14/15
Comments: Hooks are just plain junk, lost a nice fish and replaced them with quality hooks, it is now a fish catching machine. I'm going to get a couple more
From: Roger: Lincolnton, GA 5/1/15
Comments: I have several of these baits as donations to nonboaters when vision 110s are rocking. But I can't help to think of Rick Clunn doing his fishing mediation zen thing and awakening with the idea for a complete knock off of a very popular bait. Makes me laugh about all that zen schtick he has promoted for the last two decades.
From: Bigpoppabass: Nashua, NH 3/13/15
Comments: You get what you pay for. If you have better split rings and extra hooks laying around, use them to replace the existing ones. These are nice & cheap, but they catch large numbers of bass. I have yet to catch a pig with these but it sure is fun catching quantities - now to figure out how to catch the bragging size fish.
From: Rudy: Fresno, CA 3/4/15
Comments: I have a ton of these. They have great action and work well. The hooks are not great but no biggie. One issue I've had with 4 of them is the center split ring anchor in the bait can wiggle loose and it will take on water. It's no Megabass but it works ok for the money.
From: Jason: USA 3/1/15
Comments: I have the smaller version & it doesn't suspend. These appear to be hit and miss. Changing hooks & rings may help but I'd rather not have to tinker with a lower end jerkbait. If you want to try out a rebadged megabass with megabass colors (ala suzuki vehicles) pick one up & it may work for ya.
From: Montanaro: Touchdown City, WV 2/22/15
Comments: Recently bought 2 different colors of the 3.75, and they came with different size split rings. Not impressed. Sticking with KVD's.
From: Kevin: Morgan City, LA 1/13/15
Comments: I'll jump on the bandwagon. These baits light up the wiper and walleye bite in late spring. Damn if jerkbait fishing is hard work but these caught fish after working the area over with crankbaits and spinnerbaits. 6 lb. wiper destroyed the hooks and I have to change them out, but othewise a great bait.
From: Bill: CO 12/19/14
Comments: A very similar bait to the 110, made in the USA, and under $10? sign me up! Other than changing the hooks and split rings (which I do with most baits anyways, Megabass hooks included), they're an awesome bait. French Pearl is a killer on smallies around here. The smaller version is hard to cast on a baitcaster but it can be done. No more bills breaking/falling off or tails cracking. Only problem is the fish won't leave them along and have almost worn the paint off a few of them, not a bad problem to have though. The bill on my last Megabass (a 110 magnum) mysteriously fell off fishing it in 20' of water at Table Rock in April. So now I just need Lucky Strike to hurry up and start making a bigger version of the STX!
From: Clayton: Gardner, KS 6/25/14
Comments: This is a good bait. But do upgrade the hooks and split rings. Casts a country mile, suspends good , and yes it catches. And really who cares if it's a megabass knockoff.
From: Paul: Malta, NY 6/6/14
Comments: this bait is killer. I cant keep the largemouth off this thing. this is one of my go to baits.holds up well but be careful with the bill. had best luck with pearl and orange belly.
From: Dakota: MO 5/21/14
Comments: Bought these a while back at gander mtn and they are pretty good on smallmouth just the right amount of action and durable too for the money cant go wrong.
From: Gino: NJ 3/11/14
Comments: The RC STX flat out catches fish !! All I do change the hooks to gamakatsu #6 short shank ewg hooks with owner hyper wire split rings.
From: John: St. Cloud, FL
Comments: Its a decent bait overall but, the hooks bend out extremely easy so you must change them out.
From: Dave: NC
Comments: You get what you pay for. One of mine the rear ball sticks and I cant fix; I can bang it out but it just sticks again, so its going in the garbage. Out of the other three others, two suspend properly with the nose down, the third seems to suspend more level than nose down.. Not particularly sure why, however the two colors that gave me problems had sort of a see through color. Now does that matter, I have no idea just telling you what I experienced.
From: Brett: NY
Comments: Great lure! First time with this on the water i caught a fat 6 pounder, previously i had been in a fishing slump for months! Very impressed!
From: Jake: Cocoa, FL
Comments: Good jerkbait for a good price. I have several megabass and STX. I use the megabass in tournaments and the STX for fun or pre-fishing. The two things I notice about the STX is the hardware is more fragile and the finish is not as durable.
From: James: NC
Comments: I bought the 4.5 in secret night to fish bass at a local pond. I was pleasantly surprised at its effectiveness(being more of a soft bait guy. I usually don't fare as well with hard baits) Last cast I hooked a 15 pound catfish on it. The back was a bit scratched up and the middle hook was almost ripped out, but it's salvageable. I might have to buy some more of them!
From: Nicholas: CA
Comments: Great for a knockoff. Hooks and rings should be changed as others have mentioned. Got a couple in the other day and took them out today. Great action, caught two solid fish, but after the second fish I had a stick bait not a jerk bait. Bill snapped clean off :X. Hope the others I ordered don't do the same.
From: San Diego
Comments: 4.5 is good for the price. I was excited about the 3.75 version when I say it on TW but it is questionable. Looks exactly like its big brother but when I was trying to tune it to suspend or atleast sink slowly nose down I found it is very buoyant and floats nose up. The weight system is not heavy enough to transfer to the nose. Bait still might be good for a fast, erratic retrieve but I know I wont tie it on in cold water when I need it to suspend and tempt fish.
From: Tyson: Omaha, NE
Comments: If you think you're getting a Vision 110 at a bargain, you're not. This bait isn't nearly as good as a 110. The body shape is nearly identical, but the likeness ends there. It doesn't have the action and isn't near the quality of a megabass. For a great jerkbait in the $8 price range try the xcalibur jerk shad...better action, better hardware, better everything.
From: Greg: NJ
Comments: caught some nice fish this yr. on the stx. seemed to produce just as well as the 110 and sometimes better. may just have to buy 3 more of these rather than 1 MB
From: John: Ti, NY
Comments: this lure catchs fish easy as that. but def change out the rings and hooks. i caught a 6 pounder with it and 2 hooks broke and 2 split rings broke.
From: AK: NJ
Comments: very impressed for the money. I just changed to size 5 Owner hooks and they work great. One thing I did notice, of all the ones I bought (multiple of different colors), only one color had bad split rings, the other colors had upgraded split rings and all had the same style hooks so guess it depends on which split rings theys used at the time on whether you need to change out. As for copying the Megabass, well thats business especially when you look at quanity vs quality (my bet would be they all get made/painted in same plant and the hardware gets assembled else where)
From: Steve: Oregon
Comments: I dont know about anyone else, but i had a big problem with these floating extremely fast on me. tried 3 different stx's and all of them did the same thing. almost like a crankbait floating to the top.
From: Nick: KY
Comments: Great bait but I will use the real deal when it is tournment time. Also, I am pissed with luck e strike copying other companies and Rick Clunn putting his name on it, GET YOUR OWN IDEAS! Also Aaron 110's are not meant to suspend they slow float.
From: Ryan: Peoria, IL
Comments: Great lure.. you need to replace the hooks and split rings before you even use it.,,, but that being said its still a great lure for much cheaper than japans version of the same thing
From: Rob: Central, PA
Comments: Just got back from a week fishing in northern MN. This bait was killer on both smallies and largemouth! Even outfished my 110s at a fraction of the cost. Only downside - the hooks and split rings. They need to be switched out and hopefully LES will hear all the complaints and do something about them.
From: Colt: Belleville, IL
Comments: Great bait but hooks aren't the best, start to bend after a couple fish. Other than that it seems to work really well.
From: Jake: Greer, SC
Comments: Seems almost identical to Megabass. A little thinner profile, a slightly smaller lip are all I can see. Casts far, and swims about the same. Just got one small bass on it dead sticking it, but these aren't really a hot bait here in the south (for me anyway). Still for the price, got three, instead of one..
