Has anyone used them  and if so  how is  the action with them? do the tails move a  lot ? how weedless  are  they?

I was part of the field test team before release, they are very good. Lake we were on was very weedy.

The bigger ones I liked, good action and soft, the small ones were stiff, but I was told those we tested were changed to a bigger tail.

Our daughter just gave me a Live Target crank bait because she thought it looked "cute".  Can't wait to try it.

No reason why you shouldn't try it.  Let us know if it works.  However, I think I'd T-rig it instead of the nose hook method.
