Are you seeing the prices the deer hair beavers are bringing on the trade boards!!!
I don't have any of the current beaver baits with the synthetic hair,,heard this and that about them,,wondering what your opinions and experiences with the new ones are?

I don't think it matters much. The bait works the same in the water and in my brief experience the fish respond similarly. The first time out with a synthetic I caught a 48. IMO, the hair hype is the same irrational combination of exclusivity and nostalgia you see with a lot of other baits. As far as I'm concerned, it's a good thing - any hair beavers you might have have appreciated in value 2x!

I have only ever thrown the synthetic beavers and a black mid size beaver with a orange tail is my number 1 producing bait so far this year. I don’t know if the hair ones are better but I know the modern ones catch a lot of fish and have great action

You guy's got me thinking! Went and looked at my two Beaverbaits and I got one of each. I also have one that has a Jitterbug head. The jitterbug is a piece of crap even though it has real Deer hair. I wonder if there's a way to put the real Deer hair on the Jitterbug?
