The Slammer has become legendary among trophy bass anglers because of it's fish catching ability, durability, and handmade quality. The Slammer has been developed and tested for years by Mike Shaw, the maker, and other knowledgeable anglers and the bait has been perfected in it's present shape.

Comments: Agree with the previous comment about the ST41s. The stock VMCs are super thin wire that will bend easily on the type of fish you'll be targeting with this lure. Also, the newer models feature a split ring instead of the snap (or nothing). Mike Shaw recommends 20-25lb fluorocarbon; I like 20lb mono, the extra stretch is nice.

Comments: I started fishing these baits this year and I LOVE EM! I currently own 5 and use every one of them. I've caught some big bass on em and would recommend everybody owning at least one. Just an FYI change out the hooks with Owner ST-41's. They are a much better hook and have a better hook up ratio than the stock VMC's.

Comments:Great bait, this bait has great swimming motion, good for stripers as well as giant largemouth. I use the black version for night fishing and the dark trout for my daytime fishing with great success. These baits are built to last, well worth the money.
