yeah, KaRu is the real deal, no hype involved. All I've used are the football jigs so far, and I caught my first jig fish off of them. ( I'd been trying for 2 years) These lures are in my opinion superior to any lure of equal value, especially with the sale ( that ends today).  The components are of the highest quality: the skirt, which is actually thick, not just a puny little thing.  The heads, don't chip, period.  The hooks, super sharp and tough.  And of course the color patterns!! These are some of the most realistic jigs I have ever seen...  ~c~ ~c~

Okay, I have been on the fence about this as well, but after a PM from Lee I have just placed my first order.  I think the Football weights are gonna be extremely kewl, already thinking of different applications to use them in.  Thanks again Lee for taking the time to offer advice on colors / baits to my specific application.  I won't go into what I ordered but lets just say I was able to capitolize on the free shipping!  ~c~

Hmm, I've looked at all of the different products but never held one. I'm having a hard time seeing what makes them so different from others on the market....?

The main difference is the components.  Karu is all made in america by Karl himself.  That way he can put the absolute best quality products onto them without having to charge an arm and a leg to get them shipped over seas to get assembled and packaged.  They do cost alittle more than say a rad lures chatterbait, but the blades are twice as thick and 10 times stronger.  They are stainless steel not some cheap aluminum. 

The vibraspins are unlike anyother spinnerbait out there and the football weights are also a really cool idea thats going to be a huge hit for working soft plastics in rocks.  They use a very durable powder coat finish on all of their jig heads and the customer service is 2nd to none.  Did I also mention they were made right here in the U.S.A.  ~flag

I just put my order in this morning.  Can't wait to get them so I can cast 'em out on the ice.  :) I hear they are so awesome, I bet the fish put will be busting through the ice to get at 'em.

Did you drill holes in the blade? Does it help make bubbles?

That's important these days. Man, I am so sick of seeing "Made in CHINA" on everything. It seems like everything from pens & pencils to toilet paper and toothbrushes are made in China now.

Chatterbaits are made in CHINA, while KaRu Vibrashocks are made in USA. Vibrashocks cost less and last longer. No brainer.

As stated, these lures are much more than hype. They talk a big game, but the difference is that they back it up. I used to be one of those guys aggravated with the quality (or lack of) of the chatterbaits. You won't be disappointed if you go with KaRu. Plus, they have some awesome jigs and the colors are SICK. Extreme Bluegill, Fogy Green, Blueback Herring are just a few of my favorites. ;D

The pics really don't do justice for colors like blue shimmer, fogy green and blue shimmer cotton candy.  Its so hard to catch the light perfect in a pic to show how good it looks.  Baits like the ones I mentioned above look white, but have a slight blue shimmer to them as the light hits it.  Especially underwater.  The fogy green is about the same way, but its so hard to show that in pics.  Really have to see them in person.

Again, I'm not arguing I am just trying to figure out what everyone is talking about...but Booyah makes very good baits and they have some that look just like those..

The boogie bait is a little different. 
1. it doesn't have a football head.  I think this is important, because on the Karu the blade hits the head everytime creating a rattle that I believe helps the fish find the bait, making the hook up ratio much better on the vibrashock.

2.  the way the blade is attached to the head of the boogie bait look to me like it would hinder the blade swivel.  It also looks like it would bend easily.  If that were to happen your blade would bind and your out 6 bucks.

3. the blade design is much different.  For instance the boogie bait has holes in it.  Thats ok. It won't affect it much, but it will most likely make the bait run shallower is all.

Hope that helps.  Her's some pics so you can compare the to and see what I'm talking about.
