Booyah's newest buzzbait, the Bi-You Buzz

  
Impressions: Booyah has come on strong into a market where it is often difficult to carve out any existence among the vast array of lure brands. The company does so with a amalgamation of an aggressive marketing campaign (a catchy one at that) and products that put a unique spin on traditional proven style lures. Whether it is a jig or wire bait Booyah manages to add features that make traditional baits seem a whole lot more exciting.

 

The Bi-You Buzz features a unique wire design...

 

Before we looked at the Booyah Bi-You Buzz we glance back at the Counter Strike Buzz, Booyah’s previous buzzbait offering. The Counter Strike makes use of a two stage counter rotating blades which produced a unique sound and a reasonable amount of splatter on the surface. While not terribly novel the Counter Strike proved to be a quality buzzbait still worthy of consideration.

The Bi-You Buzz reverts back to traditional style blades but doubles up with two of them set in counter rotation. The head of the buzzbait is a large triangle and is detailed with hand painted scales and eyes. The lure is skirted with 55 strand Bio-Flex Silicon and under the skirt we found something special, a flexible hook! Booyah connects their XCalibur Tx3 hook to a steel braided cable, they have patented desugn and call it the “leverage” hook system.

 

I tested the Booyah Bi-You Buzz with a variety of rods including the Kistler Magnesium 6'6'

 

Overall the Bi-You Buzz appeared to be a quality feature loaded buzzbait, but I was keen to see whether the bait was a true performer or more show than go. There are a number of colors to choose from, and Booyah doesn’t just offer different skirts they offer completely different blade finishes beyond just sliver and gold, the gunmetal nickel blades on the darker colors look excellent and conjure up images of after sunset surface strike applications.
