Wondering, do they come in assorted colors?
Could they work as a eel head on softies?
With what looks like fins or planers, are they made to spin on the retrieve to induce rattle?
I'd be interested in the results of the "test team",,,,, definately!
I can see some definate "creative engineering" abilities with this.

Hmmm, what does it take to qualify to be a member of a "test team"?

Thanks to James from Skipperspride lure Co. I have several sets of Turbo Rattles on the way. Unfortunately, In Indiana the striper fishing is pretty much over for me. Although, I'm going to use them on some hybrids and muskies before the lakes freeze over. Looking forward to putting the Turbo rattles to work!

Thanks Again James

Default Re: SkippersPride Lures The TURBO RATTLER Evaluation thread

My evaluation of this product is long overdue, my apologies. I was sent some of these early this spring to try out, which I have, but have been reluctant to post an evaluation of them to date, as I just can't say with 100% certainty whether or not they help or do what they're advertised to do.

I've now used them 5 times on a rig in front of live scup, and could not tell any difference in the activity of the bait with or w/o the rattler. 2 of those 5 outings I was skunked.

I have also used them many times in front of live eels, but again have been unable to visually verify that the bait was more active when using the Turbo Rattler than it normally is without. This is primarily because 90% of my fishing is at night in cloudy water. On nights when I couldn’t entice a fish with a live eel flying solo, adding the rattler didn’t produce fish either, but I can’t say that it was the fault of the product. Likely just me being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I’ve also used them ahead of Tube & Worm rigs & fluke rigs for the added sound & vibrations, and have yet to catch a fish when it is in the mix.

I can’t necessarily fault the product here, all I can say is that I haven’t seen any drastic increase in catch results when using it on slow nights. If anyone has any questions or tips on how I could more accurately evaluate this product, I welcome any input.
