5 ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Stars from LARRY b
Just a quick edit here (5/1/18) Ordered these frogs again. I do not want to be with out them. Also I have a bad habit of fishing heavy mat with my FROGs on 20 lb braided line, I should be using 40 or 50 that I do have, but I like the extra distance I get with the 20, so sometimes I will get hung up in the pads with a fish on and break my line, that is on me, guess I am going to just have to get use to the heavy braid. As far as my Frogs go, nothing has changed since my first review below. If you Frog fish, get these. You will love them.
Have you ever lost a $ 10.00 bait? Have you ever purchased the latest and greatest lure and it did not produce? I have, alot! I fish 3-5 times a week. Went out Sunday thought I would give these Frogs a toss. They work! Landed a 6 lb large mouth. I have a Strike King Frog I have been tossing for a month in the same lake, no hits…. Sunday I also tossed a Booyah Pad Crasher and hung it on a log, it’s gone. I love these Frogs from RUNCL, they work and easy on the wallet. Come in a nice stop top plastic box. If I loose one of these Frogs it’s no big deal. Got 5 for 13 bucks.
I will purchase again, just so I have back up. The only difference I could tell between these and the high buck frogs was 1) the price 2) the RUNCL frogs don’t have a cool name like THE LUNKER BUSTING PAD HOPPER.
Give these babies a shot, you will not be disappointed.
If my review has helped you at all, please give me a yes click, thank you

I picked the Green frog with the orange belly for no particular reason, tied it onto a short 17lb. fluorocarbon leader, and started casting onto the mats of weeds. I got a swirl on the third cast, couldn’t get it to come back.
About 20 posolutely, abssitively, weed free casts later it disappeared into a big hole on the water, which turned out to be the jaws of a 4lb. largemouth, who left every piece of the “legs” entwined in the hooks.
I got all sorts of warm and fuzzy straightening it up afterward.
They do smell a little. No big thing. I washed mine in soap and water, then let them air dry, which reduced it. But I don’t think most fish hitting frogs are that discriminating. If you are worried about the paint, use automobile soap.
Next, fluorocarbon sinks. This kicked the frog off-balance when it stops, then the nose pops up a few seconds later, even with a short leader.
Even though I’m fishing clear water, I think I’ll go out this evening with it tied directly to my 30lb. braided line. One less knot is always a good thing. Braid floats, so the frog should come nose up quicker. The fish will tell me if the line bothers them.
I recommend a Palomar knot for this connection.
I could have spent far more on some Souperdooper Frogging Croaker, with a magic twanger, and Miss Piggy’s endorsement, but hey, I’m happy, the fish are happy, and I’ve got some goodly change left over to blow on more fishing tackle.
