The Replicant Series FROGs are limited to certain species that have become favorites. They are highly detailed computer graphic, exact copies and very natural replications of real species. They are beautiful, but also extremely durable.
Replicant Series: Natural Spotted FROG Species
The FROGs in the photos above and below are the Replicant Series: Southern Leopards in Dark Green, Light Green & Light Golden. Since they are computer graphics, they always look the same for a given species & model, except that the bellies can be painted custom in such sold colors as yellow, white, black, or combinations of colors & spots or mottled effects. Some folks choose GLOW in the Dark for night fishing or black for night fishing on a full moon against a bright surface.
The legs on the FROG models above are an older style designed just for the Replicants. But now they have been upgraded to the same style models on the Original Series FROGs which are thicker and more durable. They also have a much improved action in the water. They are replaceable, but they rarely wear out now. Of course, you can also change to an upgrade pair of the DNA Hot Legs as are featured on many of the Original Series FROGs. Further below you can see a comparison of a Replicant Series : Dark Brown Bull FROG with DNA Hot Legs to one that has the standard High Detail Painted Legs.
The FROG above is a Dark Green Southern Leopard with the High Detail Standard Legs.
The FROG above is a Replicant Series: Light Golden Southern Leopard with the High Detail Standard Painted Legs.
The FROG above is a Replicant Series: Dark Brown Pickerel FROG with the High Detail Standard Painted Legs.
The FROG in the photos above and below this text are the same Replicant Series: Golden Spotted Leopard with the High Detail Painted Standard Legs.
On the belly of this FROG in the above photo, you can see the belly mottling in dark grey & some light black highlights. This chain-like mottling is common on some live frogs. This custom work is available on Replicant Series FROGs for an extra charge ($5.00), since it is extra time required to produce these effects.
Replicant Series: Subtle FROG Species Patterns
The FROG in the photo above is the standard Replicant Series: Dark Brown Bull FROG with the standard High Detail Painted Legs.
The FROG in the photo above is the same FROG model as in the previous photo above that has been enhanced with custom painting ($5.00 extra ), making it a "Hybrid" Series FROG between the Original Series and the Replicant Series. This FROG also has a set of DNA Hot Legs upgrade with the translucent webbing installed. DNA Hot Legs can be added for an extra $15.00
The FROG in the above photo is a Replicant Series: Dark Green Bull FROG. However, this one has the older style, less durable set of Legs
The FROG in the above photo is a Replicant Series: Light Green Bull FROG, but this one has the newer, more durable, standard High Detail Painted Legs with a much better action also.
Replicant Series: Attractor Pattern FROG Species
The two FROGs above are Replicant Series: California Red Legs FROGs exhibiting their full "Red Phase" coloration. This is a real species. Most often they will exhibit an appearance similar to a Bull FROG with a red coloration or mottled effect on the inside of the legs and undersides of the body, especially to the rear end. In this Red Phase, they can function as an "Attractor Pattern" that is used to evoke a response from wary bass that is looking for an excuse to really "whack" something, but needs just a little more stimulous to get them to react. Attractor patterns have been responsible for many "personal best" catches by users of these FROGs.
