Mornin' all.

Just re-arming some of my plugs with new trebles.

I've got some VMC barbarian outbarb trebles to try.

Anyone got any pro's and con's on this sort of treble?

I notice Megabass use a mixture of outbarb and normal on the Vision 110.

Hi Dicky,

I got some to replace the trebles on my Vision 110. My comment is that they rust very easily. You also have to remember when removing hooks that you need to apply pressure the other way to remove them from fish/hand, i.e. pull down and out rather than push up and pull out. Make sense?

Hi Dicky,
I bought a batch of these off ebay for last season - like Andy I found they rust easilly, but also found they did not hold their point too well and were quite brittle - (had 2 snap on me) To be fair, I have experienced similar brittleness with Owner Stingers, but will carry on using these outbarbs until they are gone, just replacing them more often than I would do normally.
Hope this helps...

Yep, I fell foul of the ebay bargain!

I'll do the same as you Ian, replace as required until they are gone.

Thanks to you and Andy.
