Paddle tails come in a vast range of styles and sizes, but day in, day out, Walters prefers moderate-sized baits with excellent tail and body wag; this is key when you need to get the maximum amount of bites — mid-sized baits appeal to a wide range of bass sizes and moods. The ability to rig straight and true plus durability are added benefits that reduce downtime spend rigging. Walters also explains why he favors straight braid spooled on a fast gear-ratio reel over a fluorocarbon setup.
