Here at Xcite Baits, we manufacture all of our soft plastic baits in-house. This allows us to control every aspect of the production to bring you a better quality bait. Consistency is extremly important. If you purchased a bait several years ago, the texture and color will be the same as today and years to come.
One of the important things we DON'T do is put salt in our baits. This has a great advantage in making all of our baits float. If you are fishing a jig, the Raptor Tail Chunk or Raptor Tail Jr's claws will float up mimicking a fleeing crawfish. The floating ability also is a great advantage when fishing a drop shot or shakey head. Check out both the Slim-X or Maximus for either of those techniques.
