Grizzly jig has a good price on them. Or just search the Internet for deals. You should look at the Arkie 350s they are a very good crank bait.

Thanks Joey, it appears they only have 350's that dive 2-6 feet. Other crank baits have more of a choice in diving depth. I will say they do look nice. Pop

Pop you must be looking at the 220s bc the 350 will dive 9 to 11. You can go off the bandit 300 chart for them. They dive really close to the same depths. I have both and really like the Arkies they run true and have a tremendous wobble. The only thing is the color selection is not as big as the bandits but I've heard they are coming out with more. I know if us crappie fishermen show a big interest in them it should help.

Tony I just got started pulling cranks this year. It is a blast fishing this way you cover a lot of water and it actually helps you learn your lake. Now it is a little pricey to get set up. But you don't have to go full bore to try it. I have buddies that just use there bait casters and just pull the line of the reel counting by 3' each pull. As long as you can remember how much each pole has out this way is okay. I choose to go ahead and get line counters bc I need all the help I can get.

Grizzly jig has the best prices on bandits. Also check out tackle experts they add $4.00 there. There also was a store over by Sardis dam that was carrying them. They were an outlet store. I don't know if they are still carrying them or not.
