Good convo. I used some of these as i liked the look of the 7inch black with gold specks. Caught decent fish still prefer zman for my snapper fishing. They tick far more boxes for me than any other brand especially as they have added more colours and shapes over the years. For trout bait junkies and savage blow the zmans away though. All depends what you are looking for in a plastic.

Bit of bad feedback on the Catch Livies. Bought 7 inch Jershad in Engine Oil. On removal from the clam shell packages, all was not well. One softbait was fine, the remainder were a sticky mess. Difficult to rig and tore easily.

Gee, that sounds like a trip back to the shop for a refund, mate. Not of "merchantable quality" I think the official phrase is under consumer law.
Very disappointing, hopefully just a dodgy batch?

Yeah, luckily, I fished the receipt out the bin. Haven't been able to get back to H&F to get an exchange/refund as have COVID. I'm fine before anyone asks, very mild this time.

Just exchanged the packet without too much difficulty once the scepticism was dealt with. We noticed that the main colour in the faulty softbaits was quite different to the others (clear vs brownish). It was as if a component was missing from the mix.

That's an interesting question - because red won't be red at a decent depth where the lumo will show up.
My understanding is the red will look greyish (at least to human eyes) once it's down at say 20m (depending on water clarity). Stand to be corrected.


All colours disappear at some point with increasing depth of water, but red is the first to go. Maybe that's part of the attraction?

A good end result, thanks for the update.
