I got these through the post today and I can see why you rigged with the Canelle articulated heads,tried one with a 3/0 & 4/0 normal jig head and the presentation does not look right for some reason but rigged with the articulated head and a 3/0 and it,s fine,could be the extra length of the hook and head clip makes the hook sit better in the lure,will have to wait and see over the weekend when I put them to the test to see which weighting method is best when there,s fish about.I picked up several packets of them from: www.peche-lure-evolution.com where they were dirt cheap. I have tried sizes 130, 150, and 180 with the 130 being the most successful so far. The 130 seems to me to be more flexible in the water than the 180 and I used them with the canelle articulated heads. Wrasse seem to love them and yeah they don't get as battered as the Xlayer. The down side so far is the have a really strong aniseed flavour so all the dogs in the neighborhood are sitting waiting at my back door before I go fishing!!! Or after a days fishing coming home smelling like you've been hugging a bottle of Pernod!!!
Yep was me and there great for wrasse caught everytime I used them. I purchased them from ****. Haven't used them for bass as of yet.I'm pretty sure Callum or Richie got some to try out. I've not heard how they have done though - will be interesting to see.
