Teal are the originals. The plastic fin on top made them wobble, until it got smashed off on stones, very brittle.
No idea if Teal still make them or if they are even available.
Never liked them, never did any good on them, although heaps of other did.
More than welcome, am already planning a pre-season one.
Thinking open forum and social mix with product releases and specials for the night.
Not as much as this weeks’ spread, but plenty of current products on offer.
More on the dates etc later.
Might talk to the only retailer that was present about a joint venture….. maybe, if he is interested.
Anybody coming along who would like me to bring some specific stock requirements as seen on our websites at http://www.hotshotztackle.com or http://www.tacklesave.co.nz please contact me asap so these can be assembled or bagged.

Be keen on any ABU lures he may have had John, PM me if any available cheers.
Plus if he had a Plucky or two, he probably also had a Flopy, made by Rublex who also made the Veltic (until recently).
Be keen on a Flopy so long as it isn’t perished, if there are any that is.
Bugger TT, drop into Feilding and talk to Phil Pearpoint at Turners, 71 Manchester St, its just near you.
He will give you all the info you need without all the political backstabbing all too prevalent on the other forum.
Tell him Lyndsey from Hot Shotz sent you in there and after he throws some shit about at my expense, he’ll happily help you. …[Read more]
Just had a nightmare up country on Sunday with a fluorocarbon from USA I was trialing with a view to stocking it. Bloody annoying tangles and pulling loops from well down into the spool, will just use the rest of the 500m for traces and leaders now (doh!)
I know of some very accomplished Salmon anglers using 50lb braid on their bottom mount rods, they swear by it.
20lb braid will be thinner than cotton whereas if you fish with 12 or 20lb mono at present, you can afford to up the line strength and still feel a huge advantage. Biggest advantage is that mono floats high in the water column, braid…[Read more]
I have a brand new 300m spool of 50lb Spectra Extreme Braid you can have for $30 delivered if you are keen.
I bought it for a sea reel I no longer have use for and is a bit heavy for the Waitaki Lakes and canals.
Thickness is 0.36mm which puts it comparable to about 18lb mono.

Doesn’t sound that cheap for just 150yds. Depending what line weight you are after, it may be advantageous to shop on TradeMe. For freshwater a lot are using about 15 to 20lb and as it is so fine they are needing to either buy 300 to 500m spools and one shot it, or wind on a backing line then top shot it at a shorter length. Anything less than…[Read more]
Why does everyone dive for the scientific evidence box when they can’t substantiate what they themselves are stating?
I have already made clear to the members and visitor readers that the use of luminous components in tackle manufacture is simply "industry standard", without which punters when in a tackle store would tend toward the products…[Read more]
[quote="Miliwolf":1k7oc8m7]The same reason why people pay hundreds of dollars for a certain allotrope of carbon. Marketing.
If you want to know wither something is effective, the place to look is the commercial sector. Glow Beads and other lumo material is not widely used on commercial Long line, if it provided a significant benefit it would be…[Read more]
I guess that is one point against Lumo Tube versus the several million for it and one wonders then, if it makes no difference or holds no attraction value, how do you explain why every tackle manufacturer in the world uses some sort of luminous value in every rig made?
There are many other products that could be utilised for durability and tangle…[Read more]
