Kermy Frog: Colors: 11 Length: 2 3/8" Weight: 5/8oz Pack Count: 1
Like many anglers in both Canada and the US, the name Bass Pro Shop is synonamous with quality and selection when it comes to bass fishing gear and equipment. That being said, no company can hit a home run every time they step to the plate, and unfortunately the BPS has only mustered up a a "fielder's choice single" when it comes to the Kermy Frog.
Overall Rating: 6.1/10
Each frog is rated on the following criteria: Quality, Castability, Presentation, Hook-up Ratio Available Options, Product Availability & Price
quality is always looked at in a few different lights. There is the overall durability of the product, and then there is the quality of the finish, the hooks and the final product. The Kermy falls somewhere in the middle, with tuff skin and fairly strong hooks the Kermy is a durable frog that will take a beating on the water.. but when it comes to the finish, this frog does not quite deliver.
The paint job does not have that quality look or feel we have grown to expect from Live Target or Spro, and it looks almost unfinished or muted. The legs are extremely long though the material does not seem to hold up as well as that used on other hollow body frogs.
Sure, like most store brand products, this frog was probably made in the same factory or mould used by other hollow body suppliers, I just dont think it has been given all the bells an whistles that make those other frogs shine. It likes like it came down to finish vs price, and like with most store brand items price is the key
No real complaints here, the Kermy is weighted well, and has the same body profile as a Spro. It casts pretty well and you should have no issue with distance or accuracy
I'm sitting on two sides of the fence when it comes to rating the Kermy Frog for it's availability. It is only available at the Bass Pro shop, but that being said.. IT IS AVAILABLE AT THE BASS PRO SHOP!, most major markets have a location, and those that don't still have access to the website.
When all is said in done, I could not in good conscious give the Kermy any higher of a rating then 2.5, being only available by one retailer would often pull a rating of 2 or less, but being that the retailer is the BPS, I dont think it will be too hard to find.
Options & Price: 3.5/5with 11 color options and a price point just under $6, the BPS has hit the sweet spot when it comes to Options and Price. Not many other hollow bodies out there offer this much selection at this price point.
