PowerTeam Lures Sick Stick
The Sick Stick by PowerTeam Lures is a soft plastic bait that is design to be rigged wacky style. It have a unique square core that is encased in round rings.

Construction

The Sick Stick is extremely durable, unlike many other similar baits on the market. It is impregnated with PowerTeam's extra strong Hog Tonic sent.

Appearance

At first glance, the Sick Stick just looks like a Senko imitation or a Fry type bait, but is much more than that. If you look closely, the bait has four sides and this is what gives the bait an aggressive wobble like no other bait. The flat sides displace water as the bait falls, making it wobble back and forth (much the same way that the lip on a crankbait works). In the package you may think "so what?" - but in the water the bait looks deadly.

Usage

The Sick Stick's action is created by the unique four sides. The best presentation with this bait was with a 3/32oz Flick Shake Head rigged wacky. The bait has an aggressive wobble like no other soft plastic stick bait on the market. It is just awesome in current. Where other stick baits got swept away too fast or the action is lost in current, the Sick Stick's wobble remains consistent even in the heaviest of currents. The bait is also deadly in slack water. On my first outing I caught several fish - the first one on my third cast (see the video below). Not a bad start with this innovative bait.

Conclusion

The Sick Stick isn't just another Senko clone. PowerTeam Lures have improved the original with their innovative square core design. The Sick Stick has an amazing wobble as it falls in the water, and I feel this is what triggers some really aggressive bites out of inactive or neutral fish. It is a must have!Product for review provided by manufacturer.
