Lure Review


6th Sense's Snatch X/FRS Lipless Crank (continued)

Position at Rest: Here's an interesting tidbit about this bait. The standard 70X Snatch has the tendency to fall over once it hits the bottom similar to most other lipless cranks, but the FRS version will consistently sit with its head down and tail up. So if deadsticking lipless cranks is your game, you'll want to get the FRS over the X.

Hooks are VMC Black Nickel Trebles.

Features: The most interesting feature with the Snatch is the availability of two sound options. The X is a standard rattling lipless crank, but the FRS is what 6th Sense refers to as a "faint rattle" version. If you shake the bait in your hand, you can still hear a rattling sound, but it's softer than the standard X. Otherwise, the bait comes equipped with VMC black nickel hooks, and three different finish options although the ghost and foil/chrome options are very limited.

The FRS version of this bait stands up on the bottom!

Design/Ergonomics: Bait to bait consistency with the Snatch is very good. All of our baits swam well out of the packaging. I do wish there were a slightly heavier weight option with this bait, but on the plus side, realism is good as is the bait's hook spacing.

A look inside reveals the rattle configuration of the standard bait (left), and the forward weight placement of the faint rattle version (right) explaining how this bait is able to stand up on the bottom.

Application: The 6th Sense Snatch is pretty typical of baits in this genre meaning it's a really good search bait in a variety of cover situations. Throw in the ability of the FRS version to stand up on its head and you extend the utility of this bait to bed fishing, dead sticking and other finesse presentations.

6th Sense is poised to make some noise with quality baits like the Snatch!

Conclusion: 6th Sense is a relative newbie on the scene but their selection of baits are eye catching for the very well executed finishes. Their take on the lipless crank, the Snatch, is an easy bait to throw, equally easy to fish, and given the company is so new, a likely bet that the fish in your area may not have seen many of these baits. So if you're looking to change things up a bit in your heavily pressured waters, 6th Sense's Snatch may be just the ticket!
