Buzz It Frog : Colours: 10 Size: 3.5" - 4.5" Pack Count: 1 Blade/3 Bodies
Leg Style: Buzz Weight: N/A
The BuzzIt by Stanley Jigs gets most of its street-cred from the original Ribbit frog that is the backbone of the BuzzIt system. Lets face it Stanley makes a great toad/frog, but they leave a lot to be desired when it comes to the terminal portion of this Frog/Buzz bait combo.
Overall Rating: 6.6/10

Again, kinda cheating here as the majority of this score comes from the Stanley Ribbit portion of this bait. its a great frog that holds up very well, fish after fish.
As for the hook and buzz blade, I was not so impressed. Sure the hooks is strong and Sharp, but the weighted head seems to counteract the blade and I had a hard time keeping it up and running straight. If I slowed the bait would dip and it i ran it too fast the frog would spin.
None of these frogs cast extremely well, like with Buzz Baits the blade can get caught up in the wind and cause some drag. Maybe its just me but I find I need to put some umph into my casts when throwing these baits.
Tackle Warehouse currently lists 10 colour options and two sizes.. the Standard (3.5") and the Bully (4.5"). This options are already pretty decent, but add to that this frog is fully customizable and you can use it with any colour Stanley frog you own, hell you can even rung it with non Stanley baits (you may even get better results)
I completed frog testing with a Dobyns 734c paired with a Daiwa Tatula. This requires a rod rated for spinner baits or buzz baits but still needs to beef to hammer away those crazy top water explosions.
