    Thanks for that Steve........it's been a long time no see.......They were definitely the lure of yesteryear and certainly would still account for Barra today......I'll keep an eye on that link to see what they bring at auction.....Certainly classed as a collectors item these days.

    The wire is 21kg SURFLON MICRO ULTRA knottable stainless steel nylon coated (40lb Jinkai crimps) & small sacrificial split is used at the rear.

    Hooks are #4 & #2 Owner STN66 - with original splits.

    Its early days yet ..... but its held on a couple of meter fish (landed) & during fights with a couple of others - Time will tell

    Hmmm thinking the way the rear trebble is set up could help with short striking as well. Dunno... just a thought.

    Steve - I deliberately went longer for that reason + that it allows twist - the lack of torque should stop hooks opening up too

    Chris

    PS ..... I'm going to dress the rear treble with white feathers - I reckon that could be a clincher for a suspending lure

    Yeah was thinking the same with the feathers. I looked at the originals and thought what a waste "L"
