When I first saw this last month my first thought went back to when I was using the Dahlberg Diving frog and thought these replacement legs would go great in a hallow bodied frog . Those legs have great movement but the Dahkberg frog has a higher percentage of getting missed , only having the single oversized hook . This Lunker frog will definitely be added to the frog line up . Thanks for sharing the review Mike.

With any legged frog that will be the weak point and remains to be seen with this one. However for 6-7 bucks a copy I will be trying them out at almost half the price of the Koppers Mouse......

If these frogs are made the same as the Dahlberg from , know that those are not to be stored with other plastics they will stick and or warp like the elaztech worms . The Dahlberg frog comes with a pair of extra legs . It'd be good to read a review from a member here who uses this one .

Saw them at Walmart a while back and opened the pack. Frog looks good, is as soft as a Koppers, but pinched one of the legs and have it a little tug. Leg popped right out, so I put it back on the shelf!! Close but no cigar. Do like the looks of that Gabot pony frog though. Koppers is still the go to frog!

I just got one from Tacklewarehouse, haven't had a chance to try it yet. Going on my annual 4 day fishing trip with the boys this week and plan to give it a good workout. I'll let you know how it worked. I learned my lesson with the Koppers Mouse (which I really liked) tail. I complained to Koppers and they sent me 2 new mice. The first thing I did was put a dab of super glue where the tail attaches to the body. The tail stayed attached, a bass just bit it half off! Did the same thing with the LunkerHunt frogs legs, we'll see if it works. Stay Tuned!!!

OK so I'm back, and as promised, I will give my impressions of the LunkerHunt Frog. As I said previously, I was suspicious of the legs so i put a drop of SuperGlue where they attach to the body.
First, I like the finish on the frog, even though I couldn't get the one I wanted since it was sold out. The body collapses well, the hooks are nice and sharp. I like the fact that I didn't have to bend the hooks out a little(at least on mine),they were pretty good already. I've accidentally flattened barbs on hooks doing this and it ticks me off.
I used the frog for two days(not exclusively,frog bite was so-so, we had a LOT of rain) and had a fair amount of action. My hookup ratio on the hits I had was pretty high, I'd say 4 out of 5 strikes I hooked up, which I thought was pretty good.
Here's what I didn't like: As expected, after only the second blowup(I hooked the first one) the fish bit one leg off at the knee. The super glue worked, the leg didn't. However, I did continue to use the frog, and did continue to catch fish.
The other thing was, the frog seems to take on water a lot quicker than others I have used. It seemed to have a fair amount of water in it after one or two casts, which is kind of a pain.
That's my take on it. I wish the legs were a little more durable, but the price isn't bad. I'm still on the fence about buying another one. I'd like to see replacement legs or something.
