The ngt butt grips mate. Do they come loose as soon as you grab the rod?

Nah, not really, you have to manipulate them a bit..... If anything they get tighter if you pull against them for a second and then the rod pops out...….  But they did me a service fishing locked up  and close in a couple of times... And like I mentioned, I think it was partly the age of the rods as to why the varnish was lifted... It would also depend a little bit as to how slim your rod butts are...

New sleep system - going down well!  Room for 2 no arguments!    

What a load of twaddle! I bought a cheap light aluminium £50 pod years ago, that only got uprated within the last two years, but because I could. A goalpost pod I could fish as pod or banksticks,

listen up lads and i will impart the secret!! tuck the rods under your arm and just walk in like nothing is different, as you walk by the shoe stand just casually look down and say out loud,, NEW SHOE

Actually, that's a quality I'd look for when snag fishing, to keep the rod from slipping whatsoever on a take, as it seems you found with them. Of course, wouldn't want them damaging the rods, maybe possible to modify them? Not so much as to lose the benefit during snag fishing, but where they won't cause damage, and not really difficult to get your rod out of them?

i find these are the jobbies, they lock over your rods and it takes a good yank directly upwards to open them.

Just had to buy a new landing net. Since the Cottage went over to supplying their own nets and mats some time ago, I'd tucked my old one away safely. So safely, that I can't find it.....😱😱😱

Fishing a different lake next week which doesn't provide, so had to bite the bullet.

Went for a Saber Carbon jobbie. Hope it's quality is as good as the Saber rod holdall I have.

£48.00 off the bayski.

I'll let you know my 1st impressions when it arrives. Hopefully before my next session (Tuesday). If it arrives tomorrow or Saturday I might even venture out on Sunday morning for a change.,

I bought some red ones to match my bobbins, as ya do. They were pony. Not bright atal. I did read they were slightly dimmer than other colours but they were barely visible atal 👎🏻

My bad. I was, of course, referring to the LED colours on alarms, not isotopes. Continuation of discussions from another thread got me confused....😫😫😫

Green isotopes are indeed the brightest you can get, and yes.... I have them in my bobbins. "Ice blue" run them second and you're right....... red are pony.

These are brilliant at night...........

Well, the quality seems "spot on" but if I could fit the arms into the tiny little spreader block I'd be able to review it properly Geezer!!!!

I've tried, the Missus had a go. Jeez I'd hate to have to set this up in a hurry!

Hopefully it will become easier after it's been used a few times, but it's tricky I can tell you

😱😱😱

I've tried all of the hand sharpened hooks and Jason Hayward's (from Specialist Sharpened Hooks, who does those Muggas) are the sharpest of the lot buddy. Be warned - you'll need to protect the points with something as they'll rust/lost their points within 12 hours otherwise. Try rubbing candle wax up and down the point and then licking it quickly with a lighter (don't hold the lighter to the point). Works really well.

Probably a bit boring but my latest purchase was hooks. Some people are addicted to buying green luggage, some people have a strange desire for pots of pop ups, my obsession is hooks. Been a long term mugga fan and now using these...

I've been using the Muggas for bottom baits on a braided section, landed everything they've hooked this year, my only losses coming to pop up rigs with a different hook pattern..... Big up the Mugga;'s 🙂
