When I recieved my 7″ Drift Master from Pizz Customs I was not sure what to expect, but when I got to the lake to test the Drift Master I was very impressed. Pizz is well known for custom paint jobs on lures and reels, but soon will be known for making glide style swimbaits with what ever color you desire on your Drift Master Swimbait.

P1012866 - ©MikeLongOutdoorsThe Drift Master is a two piece bill-less glide bait built to glide left and right on a slow retrieve, or fast retrieve. This bait shocked me with how much balanced movement it had from a slow to fast retrieve it thumped my rod tip, it also on cadenced reel retrieve would glide at least 2′ left and right.

I always use a quick clip to attach my lures and the Drift Master had a little more freedom using the quick clip, if you don’t want to use a clip you should add a 40-60lb. split ring to allow the Drift Master to have full movement in the water.P1012865 - ©MikeLongOutdoors

All the hardware on the Drift Master is heavy duty from the screws eyes, to the split rings this is a very well thought out and built bait. I was very impressed at the detail around the head of the bait. Pizz Customs added just enough fine detail on the gill plates area to give the Drift Master added life in the water.

P1012869 - ©MikeLongOutdoorsPizz Customs made a custom tail out of a very soft durable material that should last for the life of the bait. The tail is attached with super glue and should stay in place, but I would suggest checking it once in awhile to make sure it is secure.

To order the Drift Master go to www.pizzcustoms.com

Pro: Incredible swimming bait, the Drift Master at a slow to fast retrieve lure that thumped my rod tip with all the balanced action that came off the bait. The paint job was very life-like and Pizz Customs painted the inside of the hinge of the bait which really impressed me.

Cons: The hooks were a bit weak and I bent one a bit on a hook set, I would suggest adding your favorite hook.

Mike Long

Mike Long, is well known for monster bass, like the 20.12 oz largemouth bass taken from Dixon Lake in 2001. That fish put him at number ten on the world record list, but it wasn’t his only large fish. He is among a handful of bass fisherman with hundreds of fish over 10 lbs to his credit.
