With my bass season about 1/2 over I thought I would report back on the results of using the CS Dip vs D2T on my crankbait.
Bass and Walleye: 5 stars. The CS dipped baits held up extremely well.
Northern Pike: Solid 4 stars. I did have some scratches...but no total failures with the CS Dip. D2T did slightly better with a little better resistance to the Pikes killer teeth.
Dogfish: Total failure when a 9,5 lb Dog Fish ate a 1,5 Square Bill. He crunched that bait into little bitty bits while in the net. Don't let them get a hold of your hand or fingers...it would be grim!
So...I now have no concerns about using CS Coating on any crank bait I can "Dip & Drip" !
