    Anybody know much about these? Looks interesting for shallow water night fishing. Hoping they cast better than a feedshallow 128.

    I've not got any and I'm sure you will get an answer from someone that uses them.
    From what I know they cast well but run a bit deeper than a feedshallow

    I've caught two 60+ bass on a cutter 128, I like them, they cast better than a feedshallow most of the time but you'd still need to find the right drop to stop it spinning out. I fish them slow on the top at night, I bought it as it looked like it'd wake well, it does, the front is like the friggin bow of a cruise liner. They're noisy too, loud rattle so I don't tend to use them if it's too calm.

    That sounds ideal for what I'm after Martin thanks. Nice to know they get the thumbs up from a good angler. Sold! As if I needed much excuse ;)

    p.s. what colour did you opt for?

    Sorry mate, I think you're confusing me with someone else! :)
    I went with the Katacutchi (think it's spelt that way)...black back, silver sides, red belly, only because I've had a lot of success with a red belly komomo. I'd go for the white rainbow one though, I've always got more confidence in a white lure at night.

    Review from a bad angler: they cast [email protected] most of the times and need a certain speed to get some sort of action it. Most of the times you just wake it: no vibrations at all. I'm a bigger fan of the bay ruf manic. Casts miles and makes na nice subtle wiggle. On the downside this lure sinks.

    A slow wake and gentle wiggle is all I need from a lure Jeroen so it works well for me. I've used the bay ruf manic recently too, I really like it but only over deeper marks as I can't stop reeling or it's a goner. At least with the cutter I can pause it. Very different lures I think. I don't know about you but I've found the takes on the bay ruf have been ferocious. Oh, and pollock love them too.

    I'm sure you do yourself a dis-service Jeroen :). Cool, I'll have a look at the Bay Ruf too. Which size do you favour most?

    And support for this post from another bad angler. I got a couple a few years back thinking that they would be deadly at night or in calm conditions. All I found is that they come in on the retrieve like a wet sack. Practically no wake and definitely no action. Got to admit they look the part...out of water. Got to be the worst Megabass lure I have ever purchased, and I have got a few!

    Did you use the 128 Pete or the smaller 115?
     
  14. Guest

    The 128. I can't think I have ever been more disappointed in a lure, especially considering it's from Megabass. I love their tackle, even though it's not cheap. They look stunning in the box but that's where it ends.

    Strange, it's still in my A box and catches regularly. Oh well, I must have the one decent one they accidentally made

    Really strange this one. As Peter says Megabass is usually top notch. Stunning colors as well.

    Is there something i missed? I used egg clips and jb clips. Maybe a different clip works the lure better? Martin what do you use?

    I use the Delalande Agrafe Rapide clips. I'm not looking for a amazing action from it, I just need it to wake like a cruise liner which it does well. I always have to experiment with the drop before casting to find the sweet spot, much like a feedshallow.

    As a foot note. It's not my number 1 go to hard lure at night, the daddy for waking at night is the Daiwa Crosswake 111SSR. I love that lure!!!

    have you checked out the monster wake 156 Martin? It looks a beast, but waking it home on a balmy summer night......Could pick out the bigguns?
