Default What do you know about these

Concept:
Used for skipping docks and flipping or pitching.
Usually when pitching you flip, let fall, then reel back and pitch it back.
These are designed to swim back and get as much action reeling back as opposed to just on the fall like a stick bait.
Very spendy.
So, what do you think?
Anyone skip or flip swimbaits?
These are heavily ribbed but thats pretty much the biggest difference I see compared to your normal swimbait.

Mike was right next to me all weekend at the local fishing show. His booth is about the only one I stay out of because I need to stay away. Last time I went in there I came out a couple hundred lighter in the wallet and a bag of C-Flashes. I think that I saw these baits though since they were on the rack near our booth. Mike is a good guy and sells only the best stuff.

Hard to tell from the picture alone but looks like it might be a nice trailer for a swim bait.

That was my thought too. I'm sure they'll work with my standard swimbait setup (Texas-style hookup with a belly treble) but the Scrounger head or a football head to simulate feeding on the bottom seems like the way to go...

You Texas rig like you do for soft swimbaits. Widegap, weighted or not weighted.
I think there is a video of a guy showing techniques, I think when you check out Bassboss' claw post, check out the japanese guys video I believe called 'Skipping swimbaits for bass'

Just checked, on the right, 3rd video down.
