    If you could only have ONE metal lure for "general" saltwater use abroad...... what would it be? (My new travel rod can cast max 60gm!)

    28 or 40gm Toby type. You could sort of jig it, burn it near the suface. Thinnish profile. Flutter a bit on the drop. Cast a mile. Baitfish size.

    I'm rather concerned that I find myself virtually agreeing with Michael :confused::confused:

    I would say a Toby of 28g or lighter, but then it depends on where you are fishing.

    Or a Dexter wedge type metal.

    My most successful lrf jig has been the Quantum Mahi, I've only a few left. I did notice that Mick (Mr fish Jersey) has one in 40gr, I'm very tempted to get one and see if the are as good in man size :)

    I've got a 32g Hansen Pilgrim that hasn't been used yet but it looks like a good all rounder and they cast really well, worth a look.

    Dexter wedge in 45g and 60g. We had plenty of roosters and snook on them not to mention jacks. Be sure to change out the splits and hooks.

    Yup. Pretty much. Casts like a bullet, and 'everything' hits it.

    +1 for Hanson Pilgrim and also old skool German Sprat. Both lethal and cast like bullets.

    I've had three slimwaves and have lost each of them within the first three or four casts...so I've stopped buying the feckers
    The idea of having only 1 metal lure creeps me out so I would have several HTO shore jigs (with new assist hooks!), a few tobys, a few Halco twisty's and a shitload of cheap metals from aliexpress

    Another vote for the good old fashioned Toby I've been using and catching on them since childhood and according to my grandkids I'm now very old.
