The action of the ProChip 8 flashers is amazing. It spins in an erratic circle while kicking from side to side at the same time. It gives great action to a bait or hoochie behind it. The use of this flasher is slowly displacing a lot of eleven inch flashers. It is easy to handle and can be coupled on short leaders (some fishermen use as short as 30 inches front and back). It also has much less drag than an 11 inch flasher.
