Pad Crasher: Colors: 6 Length: 2 1/2" Weight: 1/2oz Pack Count: 1
For the last few years the Spro and Live Target Frogs have really taken over the frog market. They have built high end professional grade frogs that perform well in all conditions.. the only problem is they also demand a premium price, but until last year there was no other frog on the market that performed as well.. that is until the Pad Crasher arrived. Booyah has created a very life like, high quality frog that not only keeps up with the big boys, but it also lets you keep your lunch money.
Overall Rating: 8.8/10
Each frog is rated on the following criteria: Quality, Castability, Presentation, Hook-up Ratio Available Options, Product Availability & Price
Im a fan of Booyah baits, they make a quality product and they appear to keep the angler and our wallets in mind when doing so. From what I can tell the Pad Crasher is a quality built frog that seems to be fairly durable. The body of the bait is my only concern, it is super thin, paper thin almost, and although this is great for its hook-up ratio, Im not sure about the durability of the bait. So far I have had it on the water a few times with no issues. but Ill keep ya posted
For a frog that I consider to feel light weight, it does come in at the 1/2oz mark. This combined with the slender body make it a dream to cast. The body material is super soft and lands really well, no hard slap but it still lets the fish know it's there.
I find it odd, that a company with the rep and widespread awareness such as Booyah does not have this frog placed in every retail store across the globe. But it doesn't, and you mostly have to look in larger chains if you want to get your hands on one. In the list of on-line retailers below, I only regularly deal with one of them (TW) and even so it is sporadically and only when I cant find what Im looking for in other shops
Options & Price: 4.5/5
The Pad Crasher may not have the color or size selection that it's main competion has, but one thing is for sure, it kicks there ass in the price category. I rank this frog as an elite Hollow body, yet it is priced like it belongs in the bargin bin.. that alone should have given this frog a perfert 5/5.. but as mentioned others like Live Target and Spro, have way more color options as well as sizes available
