What to do with it!
This thing is so big I can't believe they use this as a bass bait. I have had it and have nowhere to throw it, the only thing I can think of is to make it a saltwater lure!
First throw with this bait, had it in the water 3 seconds, and a bass took it. Love this little bait. It just catches fish.
I dont throw alot of Crankbait style lures, but I received this the other day and tried it out, and man.... I'm impressed. It seemed like every other cast I was catching 2-4 pounders. My new go-to lure. I WILL BUY MORE!
Old Man loved it
Got my dad a subscription at MTB. He loved this bait - hammered some private pond largemouth. with it
BEST KICKER BAIT EVER
I would have never picked this bait up without Mystery Tackle Box. It's live action brings fish from all over the water towards it. I usually catch average fish, but with this bait I caught TWO toads on TWO cast, both of these monsters were over 4 pounds. I could definitely see myself buying this product time and time again. This bait would be a great to crank to catch that kicker fish to win a tournament. I say it is a must buy for 2014 if you haven't got it already!
Great action. Great rattle. All around solid lure
The first thing i noticed out of the box with this lure was how loud the rattle of the two weights inside the lure. The colour i received was the green back ghost colour which looks absolutely awesome in and out if the water. The hooks it comes with are very very sharp and durable. And the action on this lure is absolutely phenominal and i cannot wait to further fish this lure. Looking forward to next months box!
Can't wait to get more fishing time
5 Stars Several Bass on this one in half and hour
i love it. it worked great for brook trout. ever time it hit the water they toke it.
Lure looks amazing in the water. It looks like the lure is actually swimming.
Great action! Bass and huge Crappie can't resist!!
On my first cast I landed a huge crappie. Over the next 20 minutes or so I ended up catching 3 more big crappie and 4 nice largemouth bass. You can fish this bait in deep water easily but also in shallow water or close to the top when bass are feeding on bait fish. Can't wait to see what my next mystery box includes but I'm not gonna lie, it'll be tough cutting this lure off my line to use something else on my next outing!!

Looks awesome swimming/flexing through the water.
This thing looks incredible in the water! I had fish darting at it all weekend! The only issue is I got a white one, wish I could of gotten a different color.
Awesome little swimbait
Im startin to see these strike pro lures in my mtb but with so many sections iv had issues with them wrappin around on themselves on casts but with the one treble it just doesnt happen swims really well and sinks at an awesome speed picked up a few smallies on it but we are waitin for bass season to open in a few weeks up here
Much to my surprise this bait worked extremely well, I caught 4 bass over 3 pounds. My 3rd cast I caught a nice bass, I out fished the rest of my boat it was all good until a gar fish decided he wanted the bait more than me.
Great action swim bait
I have never fished a swim bait that looks as realistic as this one. I mean, wow, this thing is amazing. Great profile for any sized bass. Very nice design, with the hooks and everything. Worth every bit of the money. Do not hesitate to buy one!
Great swimming action
This thing just speaks monster Bass with such realistic swim action, I love this thing, it puts Rapala's to shame!!!
I was skeptical of this lure since the bass behind my house seem to only strike the plastics, but man oh man was I impressed. I pulled four lunkers out of my pond in a matter of 45 minutes. The single treble hook allowed me to skirt the weeds quite well. I recommend this to all of my buddies now. I am also president of the University of South Florida-Sarasota Manatee fishing club/team, and you can guarantee that I will be recommending this lure to all of the members. Keep doing what you're doing.
Love this lure.
I have had great success in the fishing trips since using this lure. I found that the smallmouth in my honey hole absolutely love this lure and pulled a keeper out in just my second cast. This lure has great swim action and is flat out awesome!
An excellent lure
On the first day of using the lure I caught 3 huge bass. The hooks are sharp and you will never loose a fish. Absolutely my favorite lure and will be using it a lot.
$15 is rediculous
I'm sure this bait will catch some fish, but for $15, and the largest item in my limited May 2014 box I was quite disappointed. For a 3.5" lure with one treble hook I would pay $6 at the most. I know other have gotten a much larger model which I would most definitely prefer. Unluckily for me, I also ended up with a really random yellow colour that won't be of much use for me, considering I fish clear waters mostly. I would have greatly preferred the colour MTB shows in their picutes. Also there's some pretty big clumps of paint on my bait that appear to be a defect. It also just doesn't seem to have that quality feel in your hands that should be expected of a $15 lure. The plastic doesn't appear to be the strongest. I'm curious to see how it will perform in the water.
worked like a charm
pulled this guy out of my mtb and give it a whirl and got some good strikes on it within a few casts. got a little upset when a pike came along and decided it wanted it more then me... such is life.
Great swim lifelike bait
When i first seen this bait after opening my box, i kinda laughed. But after taking it out of its package and looked it over, it really does have great colors that make it look just like a small Bass. And not only the colors, it swims great in water! Have only used it twice so far, have had a few hits on it. Looking forward to see what i can catch with this bait! I live on a lake, so i got all the time in the world to test it out Lol.
i give it two stars only becouse how it swimd
i have used this lure u need a havy action rod.i only use it for strippers.its usless for bass with the only one hook. the cach ratio sucks.i rather use my other swim baites i have thy swim just as good or even better and with two hooks set up r better.
Yes its big, but I've seen bigger (that's what she said haha)! It looks great in the water and has a realistic swimming action to it. Best of all it catches big fish! If your out there fishing for numbers it's prolly not the bait for you....but if you out there looking for that piggy well then this is so money you don't even know it!
WOW of a First Box
After being amused by the hilarious ads I signed up for a box wondering what I would get. And wouldn't you know it, I found myself getting as excited as the MTB character waiting for the box to arrive. It did not disappoint. My new great fishing buddy is our 4 year old and he is slowly getting the fishing bug because I am keeping it fun and exciting. This lure has been a great addition to keeping him excited about fishing. To see the colourful lure swim back at him gets giggles every time. And because of its size and action I have been using it as a teaching tool to show him how fish move in the water. Fishing has started slowly up here in Maine and we have yet to catch a fish, but the lure has already had the biggest catch of the year for me, my son's excitement to keep going fishing. Thanks MTB
Enjoy the action.
Swims great with alot of nice action. Like most comments the single treble hook is just killing it for me, I can't get the hook ups. That being said I have only caught large fish with this lure since they seem to be able to swallow the lure enough to get hooked. By the way I received the smaller model.
Nice lure that I have caught a couple lunkers on!
Great Unique Swimbait!
I have never heard of this company or this lure. It looked very unique at first sight, especially the translucent firetiger-looking paint job and large size MTB sent me. It has a weight transfer system you can see in the lure that allows it to be cast a mile, the same system acts as a very loud rattle that sounds similar to a "one knocker". The lure did not run true right out of the package, it veered way off to the right on a steady retrieve but was easily fixed with some pliers. This lure has caught me some PIGS since I have owned it, and even though it is large, it attracts even smaller bass which I can then catch using a soft plastic such as the ZMan Finesse Wormz also sent in my April box. Great lure for the big females moving up in your area!
best bait in the box
I used this on 4/20 with the water temp around 48 and 2nd cast brought up a 13" bass. I used the peral bass 3 1/2". I love it! i am very careful as to where i throw it so i dont lose it, that is how much i love this lure.
God dam its big. 7" I don't know what to use it for but if I get some thing on it. It will be fun to bring in.
Interesting presentation haven't been able to use it for real yet in minnesnowta
The product is very large for my small neighborhood ponds. I have not gotten to try it out on the lake yet, but sure did look good in the pond.
My fiancé was upset that I subscribed to anything... this was his second tackle box I surprised him with and he asked... "Can you keep getting these each month? I love them!" That was my plan all along! Fiance of the year award!
Hard to tell
This bait looks great, but it's definitely something I've never used. I've never thrown a jointed bait before, and I haven't used a lot of hard plastic either. That's actually why I joined MTB. I wanted to fill my box with things I don't normally buy and try them out every now and then to learn how to use them and possibly find a bait that I feel comfortable with. I'll give it a shot.
Beautiful and Big!
That's about all this product has been good for. It is amazing to watch swim through the water, it can cast a mile, but the lure misses about 80% of the hits. After some misses I observed they were striking at the tail, which does not have a hook! So while it casts good, looks good, and is obviously built very well, it just does not catch many fish. However, the ones that are able to swallow this thing are lunkers! This is more of a trophy fish lure instead of a have fun, catch a lot of fish lure. If your aiming to catch a big bass and don't care about quantity, this lure is for you!
Haven't had a chance to use it much yet but the action is very realistic!
cant wait to use it first swim bait ever:)
First off, it's big. And it's a great looking lure, but it it's too big for most fish out there. If you're looking to catch a decent sized fish and are very persistent you might get yourself one.
Caught a decent bass with it on first cast and another later in the evening. I believe this would be an excellent bait during the presoawn and when shad are schooling in the fall. Hope to get some better results in the fall.
Great action! Received mine in white and the tiger muskie here in NM love it!
Drives bass crazy
This lure is a must have in any tackle box. I have used this lure in great and bad weather, bass explode on this lure. This lure swims with a life-like motion that can't be matched. A great lure to have.
The Strike Pro Flex Phantom had a very nice action, great swimming motion and looks like a real, live fish. have had a good hit yet but waters still really cold and fish are still tight-lipped. all in all I'm thinking this will be a killer in post-spawn.
This lure is Huge. At almost 7 inches and around 3ounces it is now the biggest lure I own. But that's the great think about MTB, trying new things. I have chucked this lure into water a few times with no luck, but the motion on this thing is amazing. It swims (even at low speed) just like a fish. I do wish I would have gotten more realistic color though. I got the mostly neon green one.
Lifelike but too big
Great swimming action. Colors are good. It is on big side if I had any complaint.
Nothing like it
I've never even had a lure this expensive even when it's on sale. That being said I wanted to use it where I knew I wouldn't lose it. I couldn't help myself because of the action so I fish with it every time. It is so versatile and fun to watch. I haven't caught anything on it yet, but it is just getting to be the right temperature in Michigan for bass to spawn so I'm ready.
This kicks BASS!
The Strike Pro Flex Phantom Lure is really cool! I used it on the first day and caught at least 3 largemouth bass within 3 hours!
This life like swimming square bill lure is a great choice for when bass are looking for a more natural presentation. This lure has a decent sinking rate and is heavy enough to easily cast in strong wind conditions. This lure is very useful on a bright day with the internal reflection plates. A fast retrieve can easily trick a bass into a reaction strike as pray trying to flee with life like movement.
Life like action
I have tried to fish this lure but no luck. It's extremely big but I don't see why it wouldn't catch fish. I'll just keep on trying!
Very lifelike swimming action. Great for when bass are feeding on small sunfish.
Great action, but too big.
I believe this lure to have potential, but I recieved the 1 and 1/8th size. I do not have a rod strong enough to support this lure, so I cannot fish it. This lure has a extremely lifelike action, nothing like I have ever saw. It is not your regular swimbait.
They sent me the 7 inch one. The thing is useless. It is much to big to catch any bass here in northern Illinois probably would make a decent musky or walleye lure but useless for bass. This made me cancel my subscription.
