The Hyperlastics Dartprop is similar to the popular DartSpin, but instead of a molded-in willow blade, the Dartprop features two propellers on the front and the rear of the lure in a soft-plastic jerk bait body. At first glance, you might think it’s a topwater, but the lure actually sinks slowly, making it closer to a “spybait.” Spybaits are hard-plastic finesse lures that have two props, but what they lack is the added action of the Dartprop’s SofTough material. On the retrieve, the Dartprop has a nice tail wag, accentuated by the spinning props, creating a presentation that hungry predators won’t be able to resist.
