    Hey Benny so I only caught a few fish on it so far and its been out of the packet for about a week so will see how it holds up over time but it seems to be made from similar materials as Zman so hopefully will last a few trips.

    Pete, I take a slightly different route than HJ. I like to have at least 8 ounces of weight on lures of this type and go as high as 16 ounces on the big squid bulbs. trolling weight 2.jpg trolling weight 1.jpg

    I usually use the trolling weights in the top pic because they are always available. The type of trolling weight in the bottom pic is the one I prefer because of the shape which more weight at the head of the lure.

    Yeah Kim, I would certainly consider that weight sinker for deeper drops such as 100m or more.

I’ll give them a try on a Nantucket monster fluke trip. Should be the perfect test to see how they hold up.

    Thanks Pete! They stretch really easy and close up tight after putting the glow stick in. Bought a assorted pack of sticks on eBay, so I have plenty to play with.

    I looked at a bunch of sites and everyone is out of stock. Seems like most shops are overseas but still no stock. Maybe Ray can lead us in the right direction.
