Money Frog: This frog has been retired, no purchase info is available
Leg Style: Buzz Scent: Salted
For those of you who may have noticed, yes, I have now reviewed back to back YUM products. I mainly decided to to do this, because of the beating I laid down on the YUM money frog, and because this second frog is now long retired is still a better product then the current frog available by YUM.. you be the judge, but I for one say "bring back the Buzz frog"
Overall Rating: 7.0/10
Each frog is rated on the following criteria: Quality, Castability, Presentation, Hook-up Ratio Available Options, Product Availability & Price
The above and below images speak for themselves, the YUM buzz frog is one well designed piece of equipment. It's body was so tuff, that one could argue it was made of tire rubber, and the heavy details and a healthy dose of salt top on this frog make it irresistible to both fish and anglers.. I would go as far as to quality the YUM Buzz frog as a premium grade soft plastic frog. (there are not many of those around)
The Yum Buzz Frog's dense body and slender aerodynamic profile make it a breeze to cast. It lands relatively light, but also gives off a nice slap that really draws attention in. The flat bottom makes this frog relatively easy to skip... with practice.
Options & Price: N/A
See above, there is no need to get into color options or price. But when it was available the Buzz frog could be purchased in about 6 color options, and they sold from $5 to $5.99 a pack
Where to Find:
I have used this frog on both my Dobyns 735c and 736c, it can be fished with either, but if I was going to choose one, I would use the 735c as it has the backbone needed but a bit softer of a tip to control your casts. I will also recomend giving the 805 a shot as the extra length really helps launch this bait
it is unfortunate that this from was discontinued, and even more so that it was replaced by an inferior product. I look forward to the next YUM frog but as for now, there wont be one in my current arsenal
