Have a couple of these at 500grm and will get a couple more at 750 grm for bluenose and bass.

Quality construction and very good durable fluro paint job.

I don't fish bait anywhere else much so it would be cool to use these in the deep if the hookup rate is ok....

I can see them being hell on kings in closer and may be handy over some pins I fish that come up to shallow to speed jig over easily.

Yeah I reckon I will need the 750s for 300m and a good day in terms of drift but with a bit of backing down should be sweet as..

Will fish them a few meters off the foul for sure.

A lot easier than speed jigging at this depth but will have a much lower sink rate than a knife jig...

I normally fish a ledger rig with a 1kg chunk of reo rod for weight so 750 without the rig and big baits might be similar to the bottom.

In terms of strike I think they will do the bussiness..
