I had a couple small dents on the first shot and on the next shot I used a sprue extender (only needed for those who can't pay attention) and got a perfect shot. I haven't shot this bait as much as the other ones yet, but like the 5", the only defects were my fault. I didn't top off the sprue in time.
From what I've seen, this one draws down more than the others and you'll need to either pay attention and keep the sprue topped off or use a sprue extender like I did.
