There are three basic variables to controlling the roll of your bait, the boat or current speed, the placement of your top hook, and the angle of your cut. With a plug cutter you get a consistent compound angle on every cut, so you have removed one variable from the equation. The angle of cut with the Pro-Cure Killer Cutter creates the perfect roll.
