Being a sucker for any hot lure from the Elite Series, I remember when the Red Eye Shad rattletrap got some press (KVD winning some tournament a few years ago). I bought one immediately since they're so cheap. Went to the lake, cast it out and it swam like garbage (on its side, and none of the advertised shimmy on the fall action). I tossed in my junk crankbait box.
So now KVD just won the Classic on it today and I'm like crap, I have to have whatever lure just won the classic. So I want to buy more but at the same time I'm thinking of how worthless the first one I bought was. Has anyone ever caught a fish on one of these? Are they really actually good and I just got a bad one?
TW has them right now so I have the urge but man, I need some positive feedback here to get me motivated.
