I picked one up right at the end of last season so only got to use it a couple of times, it did catch on the forth cast so it defiantly works but the casting is a bit hit or miss, get the cast right and it will out cast a skimmer but 7 out of 10 casts will wet sock ( this will improve when the correct casting action is worked out ). The action is quite suttle without much splashing but it has a very nice smooth walk the dog action with the lure sitting quite high and flat in the water with the tail just slightly down on the pause.
I have some to try for the new season
they are the same shape as the 135
but with 3 treble hooks not 2,
But the rattles are different the
new 117 has one very large ball
inside that gives a very load knock,
Think these are gonna rule were I fish this
Here is a photo of the different rattles...
