Of course, here at TackleTour, we often look for ways to extend a product beyond the purpose for which it was designed and the Rage Chunk was one such product. Having caught a fish and proving to myself the Rage Chunk is an effective trailer bait, looking at its compact size, I decided to try it as a drop shot bait. Unfortunately, while the bait's over exaggerated claws are great in a moving bait presentation, they attracted little to no interest on a static drop shot rig on a day where the finesse bite was really good.
As one might expect, this bait is not very enticing at rest on the bottom.

Design & Ergonomics: The Rage Tail Chunk is available in up to 11 different colors and comes in a resealable bag that contains a clear, hard plastic clamshell securely holding seven (7) baits and keeping those Rage arms from fouling during storage. This clamshell is very easily removed from the packaging and really easy and convenient to open and close. It's a very small detail, but one I happen to really appreciate.

Price & Applications: Retail on the Rage Tail Chunk is $5.29 for a pack of 7 baits or seventy six cents ($0.76) per bait. These compact trailers are definitely on the pricier side of average but you're paying for that "hi-grade" plastic and Strike King design.
Same color, same package, different amount of blue flake in each bait.
