  1. I think it's the Mega in the 36mm x 22mm size πŸ‘
  2. I got some Gardner Bugs in medium which are about the same size as the larger Korda Black and Whites. Inexpensive and do the job and after reading what Yonny says I'm glad I didn't fork out for the Korda ones.
  3. I think you can go backwards in some ways. I fished a local pit and had a few good fish to begin with, then a savage run of blanks before I eventually realised I'd become a clone of the regulars, baiting heavily with the spod, looking to get in certain areas etc etc Quite why I looked up to and copied anglers who were not catching much is beyond me, as soon as I went back to doing my thing I started catching again and more than anyone.
  4. My Shimmy LC's are un-breakable, with a brilliant clutch and could tow a boat. Proper big fish reels πŸ‘
  5. Yes a round metal line clip is deffo much better than a plastic clip, If you haven't brought the reels yet, I'd go Shimano- IMO the best there is I would not buy a reel with plastic clips, been there done that - they are absolutely rubbish.
  6. Size 6 for the 12ml, sizes 4 or 6 for the 14ml πŸ‘
  7. Superb mate what a banger, otter dodger extraordinaire, I thought they had no hope πŸ‘
  8. Yeah of course it is πŸ₯°πŸ€£
  9. Yep I hit 2 on the way down once.
  10. A very successful angler tried to get me on 10ml and 12 mil baits 15 years ago, swore it was a big edge, I didn't listen at the time but I really think I should have. Now I go for 12s or 14s if I need extra distance with the throwing stick. My bait company now do 10s so I will split the next order 10s, 12s, 14s.
  11. Β£800 Ian - so yes pretty expensive, very good quality feel to it. The fabric is also very similar to my Avid MK1 brolley so I knew it was a heavy duty, top quality fabric and that was a big bonus for me. I wanted the height as much as anything, sick of being stooped over in a low profile shelter, cant do more than 1 night like that any more. I'd say with a large bed chair it's not that big for a long session, you might want the 2 man standard, but good luck carrying that πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈπŸ€£
  12. They're good - or should I say they were good when I bought them last πŸ‘
  13. My mistake before this one was buying a cheap compact bed chair for my brolley shelter lol Bigger bed, bigger shelter I thought after suffering 2 nights in the compact brolley and bed. Now I've got a bed almost too big for the car and a shelter that weighs a tonne. Back to the drawing boardπŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ 2 Beds and a bivvy for sale, I give up 🀣
  14. Quite heavy is the understatement of the year, it is not suitable for barrowing round a lake or anything like that. Apart from the weight it is excellent, but for that one problem I would sell mine in a heartbeat if anyone's interested lol Taxi for Taylor - the idiot! πŸ‘Ž
  15. I bought loads in different sizes and colours from a so called specialist hookbait company, to say I'm dissatisfied with all of them is an understatement. Falling over after several hours in a few inches of water is NOT the one. I'm pretty gobsmacked I've not slated the company but I'm past shouting about stuff nowadays. In hindsight I should have purchased 1 pot and tested, not trusted the blurb and bought lots - noddy! I guess I've got wafters for days/decades 🀣
