Snag Proof has quite the extensive line up of frogs in their arsenal, starting with the nearly if not completely obsolete "Original Frog" all the way up to their signature series including "Bobbys Perfect" and the "Ish Phat Frog". Somewhere in the middle lies the Pro Series Tournament frog
Overall Rating: 6.5/10
Each frog is rated on the following criteria: Quality, Castability, Presentation, Hook-up Ratio Available Options, Product Availability & Price
As my rating shows, I find the quality of this and most Snag Proof products to be average at best. The frog body is made of a firmer plastic then most frogs, that although durable it seems to puncture more easily then the softer more pliable frog bodies.
Snag Proof is not known for it's fancy designs or realistic paint jobs, and the price reflects this. So Im not going to sit here and complain about the look of frog as that would be same as complaining about the paint job on a classic Rapala or Big O. That being said, the Snag Proof frog line looks dated when compared to other offerings on the market today
Availability: 4/5the Snag Proof line-up can easily be ranked up in the top three when it comes to availability, but as mentioned above the issue you will find, is the the Pro Series is just a small part of the line-up and will have limited options or selection in most retailers. Bobby's Perfect and the Ish Phat frog are far more widely available
Options & Price: 3.5/5
again this is what many would consider a classic frog, yet it is very hard to come across any reviews on it, although Bobby's perfect and the Ish model both have been widely reviewed
Where to Find:
Tackle Warehouse ($6.59)
Land Big Fish ($6.59
Bass Pro Shop ($8.99)
Outdoor Pro Shop ($6.59)
If you want full size and color selection you are best to buy direct from Snag Proof. Most other suppliers only carry limited stock in the color options. Since Snagg proof has such a large line-up you will find that most retailers carry a few frogs from each series, and never a complete line-up.
Equipment:As I kinda mentioned above, I like to throw the smaller version of the Pro Series frog, I find my hook-up ratio is higher then when I use the 1/2oz version of the same frog. That being said when you throw a smaller from you need to use lighter equipment. My go-to rod for Hollow Bodies is a Dobyns 736c, but with this frog I do usually down size and opt for a longer rod. In this case I move towards a 805c that allows me to cast this smaller sized frog better and still allows me to muscle it from cover.
