    That Mr.N4lly is known in the trade as a mere "fluff" I don't have any shots of any of my masterpieces but I do notice the Penns seem to perform quite well at this.

    i had a beauty last time i went out but as i never saw this thread coming and it happens so often (still new to multi casting, only been doing it for 8 months ish) i decided not to document them but i will in future as no talent and plasterer's arms produce some real record breaking hedgehogs!.

    by the way cracking thread, sick of hearing bout bass huggers and nice to have a change!

    I remember these back in the 70's using Mitchell 600's & reels like Penn Squidders. Crap fittings like Dons Antilash to try & beat them. I just dont suffer anymore with modern reels. Perhaps having learned on crap 40 years ago helps.
