The BeefCrawRead Now
The BeefCraw is basically the replacement of the OG Smauler, our 5" craw. Although the Smauler has been brought back in limited patterns, it will eventually be totally replaced by the aforementioned Beef.
Different from the OG Smauler, the Beef provides much more claw action. The OG was more of a wavy undulating type of movement, the Beef provide a much more aggressive flapping action but also much better at folding over. It doesn't take much to get the claws moving.
The Beef is pretty much built on the same frame as the OG Smauler, body/claw ratio being about the same, although overall length is a good 1/4" shorter. The body was slimmed a smidge to help with weight reduction, as well as a tapered body.
