I've pretty much used them all, in both salt and fresh, and the Ecogears are far and away the best.

I'm yet to catch on the new Shimano Devil Vibes, but they look great.

All of them will catch when fish are active but the Ecogears, particularly the VX35, really seems to work even when it's a bit slow.

They've caught everything from Bream, Flatties, Jewies, Bass, Goldens, Silvers.......... if it swims they'll catch it - Big Whiting love them too.

Up the leader size if you're after Flatties, they have a habit of engulfing the lure, and at $18 a pop it can get expensive.

The Silver Perch in the pic was caught on an Ecogear VX40 at Windamere - 550mm long thumbsupsmilie

Cheers,

Dave

I have used the TT switchblades, the damiki vaults, and ecogears. I have probablly caught the most bream on the TT's but the ecogears have caught a variety of fish from shitty jetty pylon dwelling fish to mully's and snapper. I think the main difference is the colour of the blade you are using on the day, as to me they basically all swim the same way... But I havent used them that much to notice as well. thumbsupsmilie

I've used a few different blades lately and my favorite would have to be the Strike Pro Cyber vib, cheap and very effective.

I don't normally read the vibes, just stumbled across that horse Silver.
You should add it to the Freshwater Catches.
