hi noodle, yes thay are marks. i thought 3/0 to 4/0 but i'm wrong again.

i bought a modified suick thriller, a bit cut of and a jelly tail put on, any good ?.
it was alot like a manta before it was modified.

anyway thanks for the reply.

they may only be 1/0 though when i got mine i asked them to be weighted differently as i use different hooks than mark does and im sure i wanted more weight as the 2/0 i was using where a lot lighter than the eagle claws mark used.

think its 1/0's more to be honest.

never used a suick i dont like the cotter pin arrangement to hang the hooks from, plenty of other good well made pull baits chop baits dive rise (whichever you want to call them) out there

i'll get some 1/0's and see.

so it's going to work different from the mantas, i can only try it and see if it catches.

thanks

just picked up on what on what you mean, mantas glide the suick will when pulled dive then rise on the the pause.
some people love them though. just not me

good lures (style wise) for tickling over the tops of weed or along cover like tree lines etc dont think they are a bait to use when the usual glides are not working, kind of like crankbaits they have a place and shouldnt be ignored.
some other ones to look out for are the big fork sand cats had these since last september very nice lures and fairly cheap. ace had some out which turn up on ebay every now and then usually listed as an aise soemthing or other

I rarely buy lures now because I've got a few lures that do well enough and the rest just take up space. Now I tend to replace lures I trust.
