Nervous Walker: Colors: 4 Size: 2.5" Weight: 5/8oz Pack Count: 1
Evolve frogs caught many an anglers eye when they launched their line of "pulse" and species" frogs back at ICAST 2011. And although those hard body frogs left many of us scratching our heads, they quickly followed them up with the launch of a hollow body series that includes the Nervous Walker. With soft body's and loud rattles, and a decent price tag, I think this line of frogs will be around for awhile to come
Overall Rating: 6.7/10
Each frog is rated on the following criteria: Quality, Castability, Presentation, Hook-up Ratio Available Options, Product Availability & Price
I have to give it to Evolve, this has to be one of the softest (if not the softest) frogs on the market today. The body of this frog can be collapsed if you breath on it to heavily.. that being said, it also punctures easier then other hollow bodies, I think they are walking the fine line between the ultimate soft body and a paper body.
The hook appears to be quality, it is nice and sticky and still feels strong
The Nervous walker surely is not afraid of heights, this frog casts like a stone, so watch your reel breaks. This frog really surprised me on my first cast and I well overshot my target. (it does bounce well)
The large body frame as well as the internal beads/rattles give this frog some "oomph", it travels well, and lands hard, but always upright!. I think the body was designed well for casting, but could be improved upon for presentation.
On-line shoppers will have no issue getting their hands on Evolve products. Locally you may have more issue, but due to a great price point, I wont be surprised if these quickly become more readily available.
Options & Price: 3.5/5
Any-day I get to pay less then $9 for a hollow body frog is a good day. The Nervous walker is priced well coming in at about $8 at most retailers. If you find one locally, dont be surprised if you pay closer to $10 as any hollow body under that is a rare find.
The Color options are not vast, but this frog is available in 4 pretty realistic colors. I like really like the leopard brown as the red legs are a red/white color and add contrast to the body color.
