First off, I’m sure these baits will work. I like the feel of the plastic – soft but not too soft – and they have some nice shapes. The only qualm I have about them is the precision, there are some fine edges on the plastic where the molds fit together. Not my idea of high quality. Then again, these bait are dirt cheep and have some nice shapes so that's a win in my book!
The Craw Fatty reminds me of the Yum Big Show Craw, it looks like a pretty solid craw type bait. I’m not particularly excited about it because it just isn’t that unique. When I throw a craw, I tend to gravitate toward the Yum Craw Papi and I’m not really looking for another one to throw.
The Devil Spear is pretty unique in that it is an extremely bulked up reaper. It isn’t totally unique as far as the shape goes- the factor that sets it apart is the segmented tail. Personally, the Devil Spear is the Havoc bait I’m most excited to fish, I can think of quite a few pad fields back home that wouldn’t mind seeing something besides a beaver. I know Iaconelli (guess it’s a sign I fish too much that I could spell his name right first try) used it at the Classic and he certainly did well on it.
The Deuce is pretty interesting for a twin tailed grub. It has some slight ridges on the inside of the tails to move water differently. I’ll definitely be putting it into action as a swim jig trailer
The Pit Boss is even more innovative than the Devil Spear but, I’m not nearly as excited to try it. Reason being, I just haven’t had success when I split the tails of my beavers and that is essentially what it is. I’ll try it out and see but I’m not as pumped as Skeet seemed to be about it on the Classic stage.
