The next step in the evolution of lipless crankbaits, the Livingston Lures Pro Ripper blends classic lipless appeal with a number of advanced technologies to really get bass biting. Perfect for targeting all levels of the water column, the Livingston Lures Pro Ripper delivers a high-frequency action that can be yo-yo’d off the bottom and ripped through grass to trigger aggressive reaction strikes.

Unlike other lipless crankbaits that rely on plain, traditional rattles to attract, the Livingston Lures Pro Ripper employs Livingston Lures’ EBS (Electronic Baitfish Sound) technology to create a distinct acoustic footprint. Unique to Livingston Lures, the EBS Technology imitates the sounds of a panicked baitfish with a one-of-a-kind “croaking noise” emitted from an advanced sound chamber. Offered in a number of proven bass colors, the Livingston Lures Pro Ripper delivers iconic lipless attraction with a new age twist.

EBS Technology: Built into Livingston Lures’ original lineup of lures, EBS (Electronic Baitfish Sound) technology is an advanced internal acoustic system that emulates the natural sound of a panicked baitfish. Activated once the bait hits the water, EBS technology consists of a sounder, smart chip, and advanced rattles that work in unison to create a unique tonal agitation. Effective in all fishing conditions, the EBS technology really begins to shine in dirty or dark waters where predators rely on sound before sight to feed. Once it is out of the water and dry, the EBS technology automatically powers down to preserve battery life.

Tones:

EBS Original - The tone that started it all, EBS original is the one used by Randy Howell to win the 2014 Bassmasters Classic on Lake Guntersville. Designed to imitate the sounds of a distressed baitfish, EBS original appeals to all species of fish and is capable of getting the job done in a wide-range of conditions.

Livingston Lures Pro Ripper Lipless Crankbaits

As everyone knows the past Bassmaster Classic was won using a Livingston lure with their patented "EBS" (Electronic Baitfish Sound). So the name Livingston should be well known by all. They are reupping the ante with this lipless crankbait that has the EBS.

At 2 1/2" long and 1/2 ounce weight, this lure casts like any other lipless crankbait, which means like a bullet. The difference is the EBS that this lure puts out. I am not totally sold on this technology, but every time I use a Livingston lure I become more of a believer. I have caught fish on this lure ripping it through grass and even just yoyo retrieving it back to the yak. It seems like the fish don't care much about the method of retrieve. While I made this lure as a freshwater review, I have used it in salt and caught trout and redfish, so don't think it is for freshwater only!

The price is a little bit high, but the EBS makes it worth the additional invest in my opinion.
