It’s a constant struggle for soft plastics manufacturers. How to make baits durable while maintaining the proper action required to maximize bites. In general, the firmer the plastic, the more durable it is – while sacrificing some action by being less flexible.
The solution to that struggle is all about design. By using high tech computer aided designs, manufacturers can maximize both durability and action through manipulation of precise portions of a bait.
By creating the right shapes, BioSpawn has been able to maximize action while using a higher density, more durable plastic – and here’s how it was done.
In the VileCraw, the addition of the ridges to the claws creates the wild flapping action on the fall but maintains excellent durability.
The ExoStick XT and Pro both use slightly different formulations of plastic – one designed to be a little bit more durable, and the other with a little wilder action – but it’s the ridges that create the subtle “shimmy” that drives bass wild and allow the use of a more durable plastic formula.

With finesse baits like the PlasmaTail, a lot of action can be lost if manufacturers use too firm of a plastic. BioSpawn bait designers found a way around pratfall by transitioning from a narrow midsection to a bulbous tail end. The bulb displaces enough water to make the tail dance with even the slightest motion, while maintaining industry leading durability
