Jointed swimbaits, ever use them?

A buddy just sent me some videos of these things in action. Particularly 8 jointed ones. The action was fantastic and life like. Anyone use these for snook or tarpon?

    I've used some of the magic swimmer from sebile both the soft and hard version and i love them. the action is great and they look super realistic. I have had some good success with snook on them.

    I`ve caught plenty of Kings with the Sebile Magic Swimmer. The 9 inch one. slow trolled, it works anytime there are Kings or Spanish Mac`s around.

    I use the same.. 2 issues with them for me...
    On the hard swimmers..The hooks are too weak for a 3 ft Cobia... Over slot reds will also bend the hooks

    And the soft..my favorites.. 3 hits/hookups and they are toast.. and them not cheap to buy.. usually about 14 bucks for a pack of 3


    But... They do produce and never...Never do I leave the dock without an Rapalla X-Rap Saltwater ...Olive Green and Silver as a backup
