Excalibur XCS 100


Although the entire Excalibur line was discontinued, this squarebill remains a solid producer in my arsenal. It’s a bit smaller than most other squarebills and it’s incredibly durable. You can definitely fish it around wood, but it really seems to excel around rocks, grass and boat docks. The color schemes were unique as well, which allowed the angler to show the bass something they haven’t seen before. I have about five of these crankbaits left but I’m actually afraid to throw them now that they’re discontinued.

You can still find these at some older tackle shops. Every now and again, you’ll see a clearance sale pop up from a major retailer and they’ll sell these dirt cheap because they’re discontinued. If you run across this, you should buy a lottery ticket. Wipe ’em out. Trust me. – Walker Smith
