    They are bloody good when fishing in 400+m off Kaikoura. I used the ones that were advertised in the H&F catalogue a while back. Can't remember the name sorry. They were on the fishing boat the guy from Kaikoura H&F has.

    Thanks your post made me ring the repair man He says that he has repaired a few too and are just a bit light. He has recommended the diawa or the 9000 shimano

    I was thinking more of hooking the plug at the bottom of the lake and lifting it so the island sinks.

    I have a mate who fishes out of Kaikoura regularly. Catches Ling on a rod. I asked him how long it takes too wind up to check his baits? Two stubbies was his reply
