Colors, size and final thoughts

topwater bass fishing popper

The Hardcore Popper comes in a wide variety of color options, 12 in all. You have everything from black to bone on the solid color spectrum and then there are several colors designed to mimic shad, bluegill and other baitfish. The feathered trebles are also designed to match the particular color bait, which is a nice touch. Many poppers just have a white feather tail regardless of the color of the bait.

The bait comes in at 70 millimeters or roughly 2 3/4 inches and weighs 3/8 ounce. For an MSRP of $9.99, you’re getting a durable bait with which you can do a lot, so the price point isn’t bad at all in my opinion. Again, having a bait you can both pop and walk is a difference maker when shopping for a good popper and the Hardcore Popper 70F does both really well.

The wide variety of color schemes, attention to detail and feathered back hook are common fare among quality poppers. But the magnetic weight transfer system is what really sets this one apart from other baits out there. It’s definitely a bait worth trying if you’re looking for a good mid-sized popper.
