    I just picked up 4 of these little rippers. only thing to worry about is they suspend with the light hooks on them now so I reckon i'll only upgrade the front treble, otherwise they look the goods.

    Old homer won me two cartons on another site!!!! ye ha homer!!

    steve
    Steve, I'll ignore the poly crack purely because you've already conceded defeat, I say dont kick a man when he's down......drink his beer instead, so those cartons will come in handy mate By the way, 48 stubbies divided by the 16 votes recieved to win the comp equals a six pack for Kim and I as we voted for your pic

    mmmmmmmbeer.

    It was a photo comp on active angler website. The comp is sponsored by fishrock brewery which I'm sure Steve will greatly enjoy drinking. They run it Bi- monthly I think.

    Hey Ben, I had a play with the storms in a bucket.
    1. test 1: out of the box :- Ultra slow sink.
    2. test 2: remove tow point split ring :- Floated slowly to the surface (such a difference with such little change)
    3. test 3: add #6 Split & #1 owner treble :- Sinking quickly.
    4. test 4: add #6 Split & #2 owner treble :- Still sinking too quickly.
    5. test 5: add #6 Split & #2 VMC 3X treble :- Still sinking too fast.

    ####Only changed the front hook.####
    Remains to be seen how they perform when tied onto the end of my line, leader and braid will have some effect on buoyancy but i guess the end result is they will sink like a stone with both hooks upgraded or they will be a good XOS flathead lure as the standard light trebles wont stand a chance in a barra gob even with light drag they could be fairly easily opened up.
    We'll see.
    Cheers Roo.

    I suppose you could treat them like the rapala Count Down models.

    Steve, that's a bugger you didn't get out.
    From all the talk about this weekend, a fish will be a bonus. I'm really looking forward to meeting everyone. A glimmer is all we need!!
    Cheers Kim.

    I tries them out on Saturday in the outlaws pool on 78lb braid and 60 lb leader and they suspended beautifully. They really look the goods, athough as you said the upgrade is the problem. Navi got some #3 Owners yesterday, and i was hoping to upgrade with them so we will see. Any smaller gauge and they are too small for the barra, and they will smash em, but hey you may be lucky. If not they will be a great jack lure!!!!

    Couldn't sleep last night, too excited, getting stuff organised. Funny feeling though not taking my boat or car, i am feeling guilty that Navi has all the work and boat prep to do!!!!!Poor bugger.
    Spoke to Lyndon this arvo and they are hoping to meet up with us on the Saturday for a fish and a lunch or dinner drink later on.
    Cheers

    I've got some #4 3X VMC's I will try on them. otherwise I'll remove the rear treble altogether.
    Myself and a Mate have been putting the finishing touches to a rear casting deck in the boat this week. Its been built and in the boat since early January but the "Roundtuit" required to finish it off and carpet it up have been hard to find.....90% done now, just in time for the weekend. I have to give credit where credit due....all i did was pass the tools, hold this, fetch beer......and I did a bloody great job of it too!!
    Kim has been ferreting away in the kitchen, baking goodies and treats to exchange for Barra Mojo.
    Packing the car tonight for a 3am departure Friday morning. Got the new Fishing DVD this morning, Might have to bring it with us.....can't remember if the cabins have a DVD player.

    Seeya's all there.
