I nearly skip keeper size bass across the top with the thing

Don't get me wrong, I love my conventionals, but there are times when the spinner is better, like having to get some distance lobbing soft baits with light weights especially into the wind.
Yep Sudsy, that pesky wind can be a problem sometimes. In that case I would definitely agree a spinner has a little more finesse. It can take a perfectly good night when the fish are feeding and make it that much harder to present, unless you're JimmyZ or Roddy or one of those conventional sharpies..
