If you've seen my tackle (cough) you will know that I don't change my gear unless it is no good. Thats why some of my gear is nearly 20 yrs old. ('Tight' is an accurate descriptive word)

Rods
Daiwa Esox
Shakespeare Quadra Carp

Reels
Shimano Baitrunner

Rucksack, Quiver and Low Chair
Cypry (Shakespeare, I think)

Alarms
Fox DX

Floats
Drennan Crystal

Bits and Bobs
John Roberts

And I can recommend it all

When you order a Salmo Slider from http://www.tacklebargains.co.uk/ it comes in Toothy Critter packaging.

if the reel is the same as the silver one in the middle you can get it in lhw, and chances are it wont be tha tbad if it is a little rough around teh edges i can talk ou through turning it into a decent reel

if its the six shooter though dont do it i have NEVER heard a good word about them

the lures were salmos masterline had the rights to them in the uk



not all masterline lures were salmo though so dont buy them on the strength of that

one word over the multi though its not made for chucking big jerks soft plastics etc around

it will do it but its only a small reel so not ideal i have used mine for jerks like that and it tends to overspin a lot (me being me took all the brakes off and has it backed right off for those extra few yards Rolling Eyes and then stick bigger lures on and the inevitable happens

you played with the brakes yet?
what braid you running on it

ill put it this way the lad who i do most of my lure fishing with has four of the toothy critters

along with four 6501c3's two of the new fangled abu toro's

which do you reckon he uses most for bank fishing?

for general big lure work like the mb gliders leons and his mantas trueglide etc its teh toothy critter
