Re: Sold on Vision 110 but have question on Hooks?

I always miss the jerkbait season and never do much good when I do fish them. For walleyes I just throw rouges and for bass, the X-Rap seems to produce very well for me. I have 6 of these vision 110s and most of them have never seen water. I have hopes for next year that these visions with out perf...

Re: Smoke 100 vs. Curado 50e for pitching

TT does have a review of the smoke. http://www.tackletour.com/reviewquantumsmoke.html Doesn't compare it to the 50e but gives good info on the Smoke. I'm debating getting one right now.

Re: Sold on Vision 110 but have question on Hooks?

seems like each response I get spawns another question. About EBAY, has anyone heard of fakes being sold on EBAY? The reason I ask is that the chinese seem to fake everything now, and I had heard guys talking about fake LC pointers on EBAY before. Any truth to it?

Caught 44 bass today and all but 5 were on a 110. Outfished my buddy that I've been fishing with for 3 years and have...

Re: Sold on Vision 110 but have question on Hooks?

That was my next question, will swapping to a different type of hook affect the suspending characteristics of the bait? Problem with the stock hooks is that, while available, its not like you can just walk into a bait shop and buy these hooks. I guess I'll just have to order some to have on hand, I'...

Right now its Loomis. I have Loomis, St Croix, Powell, Shimano, and will have a Dobyns soon, Can't wait to try the Dobyns, with all the good reviews on here.
