Default $$Lucky Craft Live Pointer$$

Has anyone tried Lucky Craft's Live Pointers. I've been reading about them and it sounds like these are the real deal. But for $23 a pop, I'd be scared to even cast these out. "the Live Pointer actually has 12 segmented sections, allowing for a larger range of motion and more realistic tail side to side action." "Once the fish is set the Live Pointer has another unique benefit. When fishing rigid hardbaits fish can sometime successfully shake the lure with quick rolls or dives, not the case with the Live Pointer. The segmented tail actually absorbs the shock of the fleeing fish and actually flexes in the direction the fish runs." "Unlike jointed lures that use a single metal linkage the Live Pointer utilizes 2 reinforced steel wires under the laminated protection of the plastic segmented tail. This not only allows for a much more free range of motion, but proved to be exceptionally resilient. "

steve, you have to expect to lose a lure now and again. expensive plugs garner your complete attention when tying knots to them and checking to make sure you're not tangled at the tip when casting or keeping open the bail etc. a danny eely will slay em in the wash.
