bent minnows osp vs others?

Hi, i'm keen to hear from those that have used a few different brands of bents, how do brands like hurricane and austackle and any others compare to the xxy osp's?

I know most other brands are smaller but do they have the same action and boyancy?

cheers

nothing compares to the osp. i've used all 3 and the osp is by far the best. i found the austackle one to be a little more successful than the hurricane one too.

OSP Bents slay fish, full stop.
I've seen other copies being used and to tell the truth they do not stand up to an OSP bent. The hang time of a copy that I have seen used just hangs for to long under the water and spends way to much time under. It's a personal thing but I think the hang time under water is just to long for a surface lure.
The OSP bent has slayed many 40+cm blue lipped beasts for me...The results speak for themselves!!
Nereus, the best retrieve I have found is to give them a very slow twitch getting it walking across the surface, let it go under, then wait for it to rise back to the surface, then give it another twitch. I repeat this retrieve until it gets belted. On most occasions, it doesn't take long

The pot is well and truely stirred
I brought an osp bent minnow the other week and have only caught 2 or 3 bream on it from the flats, they would rather eat bongo's or ghost walkers.
