    I've put my foot down and said that I'm buying one more lure this year and that's it!!!!

    I'm in the market for a feed shallow in #11 (mullet), but not sure if I should get the 105 or 128????

    I already have a 105 in sardine as the mullet was out of stock when I wanted one initially.


    Your thoughts please on which size you have found most productive......don't want to end up buying one of each :batonhead:

    Daniel, I have one of each but the 128 has caught me more bass to be honest.

    105 for me, just love the chartreuse colour.

    Daniel, so many opinions, better to ask locally, depending on which area, presumably Wales, that you fish most, which one is likely to be the most effective for you. I'm lucky to have both, and IMHO it depends what size baitfish the bass seems to prefer on any given day..........this time of year i would go bigger! Robert.

    I've caught more fish on the 105, but as you already have a 105 I would probable go for the 128 as although the lures action is very similar the 128's action is a little less 'tight' compared to the 105 in my opinion.

    That's what I had heard about the Straits Haydn.....

    Thanks for confusing me even more Darren......:lol:

    Is the plus even larger than the 128?

    Ah right, that's handy to know with the North Wales wind always blowing a gale in your face wherever you go! Lol

    I'd vote for the 105. In my opinion they cast better as well. Is it distance you're looking for?

    Not really mate, just trying to cut down on the amount I'm spending on plugs......I'm like a magpie with all these shinny things!!!

    Wanted to know which is more productive more than anything.

    The feed+ sits tail down when stationary and floats up slower when stopped. Whether or not it makes any difference is up for debate lol. As for 105 v 128 I like the 128 most of the time. But id listen to the locals advice, it will be region dependent for sure.

    Chris your so right......Region dependant.I find pattern sardine kills around Pembrokeshire area but up here for me anyway sardine is outfished by olive,ayu and more natural colour lures.My shoreline r50 in sardine has worked for me but only pups.I would love to see a feedshallow in smelt pattern...tissues !!!!!

    Good luck with not buying any more lures Daniel :-D

    As far as the feed shallow goes I've got the 105 in No 8, the 128 in mullet and the + in glow (pearl / chartreuse) and no luck on any yet but they're great lookng lures with a fantastic action so I'm sure you'll do well with whichever you chose ;-).

    Daz, a sardine shiner r50 is what caught most of the fish in my "2 weeks off" thread! Brilliant lure and I'll be getting a spare or two when they are on offer again! ;)

    Andy you know what it's like.....think I should start some lureaholics anonymous meetings!
    Lol
