Dan, do a search, there was a whole bunch of posts on this same topic a couple months back.

For the record, the only ones I've used had paint chipping before they came outta the package. I was told by people who did actually use them they soaked up water like a sponge. The only ones I've seen used were re-painted and epoxied over to keep the water out...but then they didn't swim.

I can't imagine how a pencil popper could be bad, though, so long as remaining painted is not an issue with you.

Show someone how to catch striped bass and they'll be ready to fish anywhere.
Show someone where to go striped bass fishing and you'll have a desperate report chaser with loose lips.

Bought 2 a few weeks ago at a B&T sale. They swim OK. Waiting to see how they hold up. Haven't tried their pencil poppers.

i have fished the darter. it swam pretty nice and i caught a few decent fish on it, but the paint flaked right off the plug. i resealed it and fished again without any luck. i got 2 darters for 13.00. at that price i was happy with the preformance.

I caught a bunch of bass on the small yellow popper a few years ago.
As Tim mentioned, the paint was gone after 1 good day.
The hooks inspire no confidence. I haven't used it in 2 years...
