@ bullrout22

I'd surely agree , ......really nice ones and very neatly made thumbsupsmilie , ....but if you'd ever swim them , you should possibly change the snap connector of the top one to a duo-lock snap , .......or at least bend the wire tag end tight around the eye so that it won't be able to open anymore .

Years and years ago I've used these snaps to connect bottom sinkers to an anti-tangle tube accommodating the mainline , when fishing bottom sinker set-ups .

Littered all of those snaps in favour of duo-locks later , ....lost quite a lot of sinkers , when these tilted inside of the snap causing it to open , ....these snaps are not reliable IMO !

Cheers , Dieter howdy

I gave the Sour Grapes a swim last cod season.

Very good action.

Didn't catch anything but it is more to do with the fisherman than the lures. -yup

You`re right Damo, there is some good water near Wemen. It`s just that too many idiots fish there lol lol

Keep your eye on the post mate & if it`s not there by the end of the week, it`s probably been lost somewhere between here & there cccc
