    Has anyone used this lure and how does it perform against the much alike Salt Skimmer?

    There's €11 in the difference between these 2 so maybe a good (cheap) alternative
    I must admit i have'nt taken to TW lures yet (lack of patience) but with 3 new TW's in the box for this year, i'm going to give it a good go.

    The ikari is exactly the same as the skimmer 1gm heavier and quite a few pounds cheaper they also do some great colours all in all a great lure to have in your armoury

    Cheers Patrick. I just happened to stumble upon it in a small side street tackle shop, noticed d resemblence to the skimmer straight away. My only concern was how it casts, like with the feedshallow copy from shamrock, very similar but casts poor compared to the real deal. But with the price of the ikari, i couldnt leave it behind.

    Casts like the original skimmer, an excellent distance lure

    I use these myself, exactly like the skimmer good hooks, lots of colour and for only 6.99 with free postage.
    Veals sell this exact lure for £12.50, check it out on ebay under the name VMO Slim Skimmer and in only 2 colours.
    I will send you a link to ebay if you like, I wont put it on here just in case it's classed as spamming.

    These 2 I use the most and they do catch fish.
    The Holo Rainbow colour with either a black or brown back.
    If you do a search for Salt Skimmer on ebay you will see them.
    Sellers name is Tonick35.
