The design concept was good…the issue with it is the tentacles are way to close/tight together to get the really good action. On the bottom 1/2 the bottom set of legs are to tight to the upper legs and tail. To get better action….I think ripping them off would solve it though.

Or cutting them up the seams to make the legs a bit more free... (even though it may seem busy, It'll be a fish catcher purely because of it's tiny size)... the real debate on this should be whether to go natural or fluorescent when making these (and the obvious answer is both)!

And just what is flawed? Just because something doesn't make muster in your book doesn't mean anything is flawed. Don't like it, don't buy it or use it. Like efishnc has commented, "it'll be a fish catcher".

I have a lot of small baits whose legs/tails get wrapped around each other when I pull them out of the mold,  They work pretty darn good when fished however.  The water helps to keep them apart from each other.  Not sure  if that is the case with this particular bait but I would not dismiss it out of hand till I tried it.
I find it incredible that I have to explain to a grown American citizen that taking a knee during the National Anthem is disrespectful.
