    The JTS was a classic lure some years ago.
    With a decent rod eg Bushwhacker they are not that bad for casting.
    The action is a fantastic wiggle just under the surface.
    I only found out a couple of weeks ago that Ian Morris had some origionals for sale. I bought 2 in my fav colour, black and silver, and I was not disappointed.
    1 is always in my lure box.
    I'd still prefer a Komono 2 which is my fav lure, but the JTS is not far behind. IMHO of course

    Im thinking of investing in one...

    When ye say they are bad for casting, what distance are we talking?

    30yards?

    Thought i would resurrect this good thread.......Storm Jointed ThunderStick.....is a great lure even tho' it's pants to cast.
    Question: how do you tell the originals from the new? I presume Storm have used the same moulds to make 'em....or not? :?:

    i have a couple of the new ones they dont dive as deep as the origanal ones ,
    or so im led to beleive .
    ive done the same as andy did and put a couple strips of lead on the last piece
    makes casting alot better and still works very good
    not my go to lure but i do use them quite a bit and very rarely failed with them

    Barry ,

    I use to have every colour they were available in at one time as I thought they were great lures and probably still are . I had the original versions so I cant comment on the re issued ones ,but one thing I can say is that they did catch a lot of fish for me back in the early nineties, the trout coloured one seemed to have an edge for day time fishing but I preferred black and chrome for night fishing .

    If it failed in the Gap, I think I will leave it so.

    The original jts had thunderstick printed on the side and the copy's had the new storm logo on the tail.i used to catch all my bass on them in my early plugging years.caught on every colour.the best one being the rainbow trout.i gave them all away in the end.i just moved with the times ,the feed shallow replaced them and so on.....:-D
