    Never been able to pin him down, but I think it's Thessalonica. Thinking about shallow, boulder marks near to me.

    Keep looking at them myself..Not sure about them ,are they too small and give no obvious advantage to a 115 , which is small enough anyhow. The only reason I can see for buying them is that they are fatter,and some bloody cool colours!

    I've got a few of the 88mm ones Richard but so far I've only caught small pollack on them, having said that I've only ever caught 1 bass on a Ruf Manic so my lack of success is hardly a reason for not buying one yourself :lolsign:.

    Thank you gentleman for your replies. They have undoubtedly saved me a tidy sum of money. I will now go and fall in love with another lump of hard plastic.

    I caught several pollack and a few bass on a white one over the season, in every instance the take was ferocious! I find them good for seeking out distant features as they cast so far, good for covering a lot of water, if you keep your rod tip high I've found you can reel pretty slow with them. Will be trying them again this year....but yeah, they sink like a stone of you stop reeling.

    Gareth, I get withdrawal symptoms if I don't go and end up buying more tackle I don't need..Going freeze my nuts off out wading at 3 o'clock this morning with little prospect of a fish .
    My wife has given up thinking I am stupid.....she knows I am !!!

    Brian ,I am also making a couple of lures. Going to be a x between a needle and bay ruf . Wanted a bigger bay ruf to cast out of territorial waters and as you cant buy anything bigger than 135 thought I would make a couple .
