The Basstar Proprunner can definitely classified as a “Big Bait,” and is actually even bigger than some traditional swimbaits. The Basstar Proprunner has a polished look and feel but appears more mass produced than it does custom made, the upside is that the detail and consistency between baits is unsullied. The Proprunner comes in two varieties, the trout and white pattern come with a large prop in front of the rear hook while the limited edition chartreuse shad replaces the propeller with a matching silicon skirt. Each bait comes armed with VMC hooks which are mounted on an internal swivel that allows the hook to rotate freely. Basstar calls this their “360 degree rotating hook system” and the design allows the hook to turn when in the fish’s mouth so that it is more difficult to use the bait’s body weight to shake the lure loose during the battle.
