There are lots of topwater lures out on the market today, but the Boing Topwater lure is just a little bit different from all the rest. From its aerodynamic balanced design which helps with casting distance especially in the wind, to its incredible internal clicking sound which you can hear while working the lure in. Boing has set the bar high so lets break it down and take a closer look at the Boing Topwater lure.

When I first received my Boing Lures I was very impressed by the packaging containers that the Boing Lures came in. They were small round cylinders that were the perfect size to store in a tackle box, backpack, or in the boat. The lid on the packaging was also a very easy to open lid and very easy to put back on and that is a pleasant surprise compared to some of lure packages on the market today.
The Boing Lure has an internal ticking sound that is activated when you move the lure, so not only will the lure attract bass like no other topwater lure on the market today, but the ticking sound will also help you in the timing of your retrieve cadence.
I really liked the tapered design of the lure, it was around 1/2′ at the head and gills section down to around 1/4′ near the tail end of the lure. Along with the weight that Boing added in the tail section of the lure, I could cast this lure through the air like a bullet. A very balanced lure while in flight and when the wind kicked up I could still make some great long distance cast into the wind which was great when fish broke surface far from the boat.
The colors I used for my field test review were baby shad and dark bass which were painted by Dwain Batey from BaitWerks which is one of the best lure painting companies in North America.
If you take a close look at the picture above you’ll find that the eyelet is turned side to side instead of up and down which seemed to really help in walking the Boing lure during the retrieve.The Boing Lure was one of those fun to use lures where I couldn’t wait to make the next cast and walk the lure in.
Pros: A very easy to cast lure with an incredible paint job. The sound chamber was by far a huge factor in getting bass to find and strike the lure. A very easy to walk lure at medium to fast speeds and the ticking of the sound chamber was very helpful in hearing and timing my retrieve cadence.
Cons: What I found during my field test was some bending out on my hooks due to the amount of bass caught, so bring some extra #4 treble hooks. The tail feather also got torn up quick so have a few extra per trip.
