Shimano’s MB-57F Flat

Post by goldrod » Sat Jun 25, 2022 4:18 pm

Has anyone else got any?
I’ got two in and they seem rather small. I’ve yet to toss one out
ICHIKAWA FISHING RC Flat Shad is another flat crank I’m looking to get but want some feedback first
THIS is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.

Thought about the MB-57F Flat, didn’t get it yet.

Got the ICHIKAWA, bought 2 more

I bought 3 of the RC FLAT SHAD 45MDs over the weekend, that’s 3 65s and 3 45s, discovered there were some baitfish beside shad in the lake and a few more craws than I thought!

Awaiting the blings and will check out a stray dog or two.

Don’t know what it is but here in fla I use flat sides all year round. For some reason they will hit it in the hottest of the hot of days as much as they will in the dead of winter

Have you tried an FS-R? They are great but a bit difficult to find. I had high hopes for the Flat Force but it kind of fell short for me

also, let us know how the Macbeths work for you
