By far the best paddle style bait I have ever used. Fished a lake where every fishermen was telling me those baits will not work here, and to a point I believed them having used others on the same lake to no success. But I prepared myself the night before buy only taking all the baits from PTL I had received the day before plus my sexy-shad. My first cast bass number one took the took the swinging hammer but I lost him. It went on that I lost 6 fish due to over reacting. Towards the end of the day I settled in and was able to land 5 bass on the Hammer's and one on my trusty sexy-shad. Needless to say I came home and ordered more i went through 4 of the five.
PS. I did soak them in the Hog-Tonic that comes with the package over night. I also stuck my sexy-shad in the bag with the tonic. LOL

Tough , durable and fish catching machines. These plastics are perfect for ALL my jig fishing and perfect for carolina rigging. So impressed with these baits if i could rate higher i would. Some of the best plastics I've used i purchased from POWERTEAM LURES.

I love using this bait rigged up weightless and burning it across pads and grass at my local lakes that are heavily pressured, or throwing them on 3/8 oz swim jigs as a trailer.

I absolutely love this bait due to its versatility and the fish love it!
I usually run the swinging hammer on a 1/2 ounce jig head for a lot of my offshore fishing. My go to place for this bait is shallow vegetation Texas rigged with a 3/8 ounce sinker the bait can swim through dang near anything without hanging and it brings the big girls out of the thick stuff!

I use this on the Bull Nose Jig and it performs flawlessly! The action it has is amazing. Until I found this lure I would go through a crazy amount of hollow body swimbaits and they are expensive! sometimes they would tear without even getting bit. The Swinging Hammer is super durable and lasts for fish after fish but the action is amazing. The way it swims through the water is awesome to watch and the fact that it continues to swim even at a super slow retrieve speed is super important.

This is the best swim bait I have ever used. The swinging action is unbelievable. My partner and I always have a 5.00 bet for biggest fish landed in the boat and this is my go to bait to win the money . I also take all my springs off my weighted swim bait hooks and replace with medium owner center springs. Hats off to Power Team Lures

Have been using this product for about two months.
All I can say is it's great as a jig trailer or fished by itself. Just one more reason I love Power Team Lures.

Not only does this bait perform with the best action, but the added ability to fish it so many ways without having to change your whole rod, reel, and line setup make it the most complete swimbait.

The 4.8 Swinging Hammer is an unreal bait with a ton of movement. the action that the body produces along with the swinging action of the tail is just a thing of beauty. Bass can not resist the Swinging hammer.

I used Powerteam's Swinging Hammer this past year for the first time. I first tried them out for a fun day of fishing and I wasn't disappointed. After that, during tournaments, I love rigging them weightless and weedless and letting them drop for largemout. On a swing jig 1/8 ounce for smallies. The paddle tail gives a solid action and with the Hog Tonic, just awesome. My "go to" swim baits. I love using swimbaits in general but now I've added the missing link to my arsenal. 5/0 or 4/0 worm hook works the best.

If you want the Samuel l Jackson of swim baits look no further. I like throwing them on the Picasso rig . Just add hog tonic and hold the f@!# on!

Have rigged and fished the Swinging Hammer a few different ways, burning it in or slow rolling,,, weighted or unweighted and it always performs flawlessly.
Excellent Bait!!! The Folks at Power Team Lures are Fantastic as well!!!

rolling action, thanks for a great bait.

These paddle tail swim baits are the best in their class and I'm not just saying that. The quality of the material and colors matched with the swinging movement of this bait makes it unmatched by other lure companies. Use it as a teailer, Texas rig it or go weightless. It will flat out catch the bass' attention and land them in your boat. Truly great lure.

Fast, personal service. I received my package the day after I ordered! I even exchanged email with management regarding discounts and the like. Wonderful experience from a small business!
And the Hammer nails the fish!

No matter how you fish it it catches fish

Very versatile bait. I use it in a variety of methods and none are bad. I have caught a lot of fish on this. You can check out my review and the vids on my blog here:

Hmmmm, there was something really important that I wanted to say about this bait. Oh what was it? Oh yea…now I remember. I CAUGHT MY PERSONAL BEST LARGEMOUTH ON THIS BAIT THE VERY FIRST TIME I TOOK IT ON THE WATER!!! An 11.46 lb. pig to be exact (I'll never forget the giant bulging eyes on that mule)! But don't let that bit of information sway you. Let the massive side to side swagger of this bait sway you. After all, that's what swayed that monster bass into engulfing it. My toes still curl just thinking about that glorious day! Oops, there I go day dreaming about that fish again…my bad. Back to business!
The action of this bait is never compromised regardless of what your retrieve speed is. From burning it on a ½ oz. swimbait hook all the way down to a slow weightless crawl along the top for a seductive wake, the performance of the Swinging Hammer gets fish all jacked up like meth heads on a fresh fix (especially the big ones)! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna peace out on this write up so I can go watch the video of my hog again. It never gets old!
This is another one of those baits that I put a drop of PRO's Soft Bait Glue on the screw lock of the hook when I'm rigging it. Fish smash this thing with a vengeance so that little drop of glue will definitely save you money in the long run because you'll get many more fish per bait. Hey, did I mention the fact that I caught my personal best largemouth on this bait? Just checking!
P.S. Slooow rollin' this bait for shallow pigs is one of my personal favs. But it's a free country so you can do whatever you want.
