My favorite is the Huddleston 68 special, But I would imagine it wouldn't hold up to too many pike. If you are looking for an affordable hard bait the BPS Z9 has decent action & works well for pike.

My favorites for pike are the 7 and 9" Slammers and the 6" BBZs. I caught my PB and another high 30s fish on the 7" Slammer, along with lots of 20 - mid-30 range fish on the 7" and 9" Slammer and the 6" BBZ. My best colors for pike are perch and rainbow trout.

In addition to the Slammers and BBZs, I'd take a hard look at the Dynamos - I know the SW Colorado pike specialists have been doing some serious damage with those. Serious, serious damage!
