I sample out lots of baits made with Do-It molds and the Ripper, regardless of size, is by far the most popular with the walleye and a few bass guys up in these parts. I've handed out the cnc version and the Essential series baits and it makes no different.....they just love'm. Our cold weather walleye and sauger river anglers really like these baits while there are a lot of big lake anglers who rely on them too. Honestly, I think the Ripper is the smartest bait Do-It has created. Now if they'd get a 2" or 2 1/2"version on the blocks...... Kyle? Kyle? Are you out there?
