A recent memorable fish is a 10lb bass caught on Frenzy.
PB is 11.68lb but I can't easily update it.
I'm making a lure to break the record, but i'm overtaken by my friends Lol.

    Unreal success fishing the TK and the K9 and just started playing with a few different ghost modes and I’m literally just blown away at the versatility and just the response I’ve gotten from big bass! It’s insane how aggressive they attack them! I can’t get enough man you truly have pushed innovation to unbelievable heights and we are all just sitting back waiting for more and the next stuff you mastermind!! Thank you so much man you have made bass fishing really really fun!!

    I agree with the comment about the Klash 9 and TK being amazing but hard to aquire at a reasonable price. People are driving prices up and during economic hard times world wide. Enough venting. Your lures are amazing.

  • Ger Lee

    love the TKs and K9, I just wish it easier to get and to get the Artex Rods. I’ll love to have one.

  • Levi Summerford

    I love your baits man .. they’re so cool I wish I could find a klash 9 low for less than $200 these guys have the prices way up… please let me order one !..
