PRODUCTTPREVIEW : Meet
the shrunken down Spro BBZ-1 Jr.
Introduction: At ICAST 2008, Bill Siemental showed us the then prototype "mini-me" versions the 8" BBZ-1 swimbait. These new, six inch sized versions had been anticipated since the full size version debuted many years ago. At that time, Spro was anticipating a Fall or Winter 2008 release of the bait, but as we all came to find out, release was delayed.
The 6" Spro BBZ-1 Jr. is finally ready to hit store shelves and in four different colors.
Now, a full year later, the bait is finally ready and the projected price for this new downsized version? Just twenty dollars ($20) retail!
Initially available in one of four colors all shown here, the BBZ-1 Jr will come in the same three fall rate options as the full size, floating, slow sink, and fast sink. But one big difference from the full sized version? Only the fast sink BBZ-1 Jr. has the rattle chamber in back of the bait.

At $20 a piece, these downsized versions of the BBZ-1 are sure to make some noise.
Conclusion: At only twenty dollars ($20) a piece, these downsized versions of the eight inch BBZ-1 are sure to make some noise and help foster a new generation of fisherman geared toward larger baits. Weighing in between two to two and a half ounces ( 2 - 2.5 oz ), these baits will not require the use of extra-heavy duty gear either and should make for great fish catching fun.
These baits are set to release any day, but if you can on the list for pre-order, right now at
