After some trial and error in my last two prototypes I redesigned my squid and came up with this design this time. Casts like a rocket and has awesome action on a swimbait hook. Threw it through the ringer yesterday with all retrieves and it performs- the ultimate test will be to see what it does in heavy current. I think the bullet shape to it will help to keep it from spinning.

Very excited to use it- my last prototype did very well but I foresee this one being a regular in my rotation especially during the squid bite- the problem for me has always been can I find a squid bait that casts far enough so hopefully the shape and size of this bait will solve those problems.
