Hi guys, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with the reins ring craw. My primary texas rig/jig trailer is the strike king rage craw. I was curious about this craw after seeing some online videos. I was thinking these would be perfect for upper potomac small mouth. I have these in the cart, but I just wanted to see how everyone felt about them.

Great bait and one of my cold water go to trailers.I run them on both a football head and standard casting jig. In warmer water I prefer a chigger craw or paca craw when I want more action but in cold water the ring craw rules.

And, while you are placing your order, if you also throw a wacky rigged worm, get some of the larger Reins Cross Swamp worms.
For anyone who hasn't seen these, they are the "X" shaped worms (the "X" lying on its side) and when you rig them on a wacky hook properly, they float down through the water column a bit like a butterfly flapping its wings in slow motion.
If fish are hitting plastics during a slow drop, I think this one is even better than a Senko.
Too, pretty effective sped up a bit with a weighted wacky hook/jig head; but, I'd use a light one so the drop isn't too fast negating the flapping motion.
