I don't know about rigging them both ways, but I know that with a fairly consistent downwards jerk of the rod tip they have a very sexy side to side rolling action through the water...I really like the way they look

good one, thanks Scott. Obviously I'll be trying different stuff with this lure once I'm on the water, but an early heads-up like that is great.

Cheers
Angus

Rigging them the way the manufacturer intended rsults in a surface stickbait. Rigging them the "wrong" way round results in a sub-surface stickbait. They work both ways.

The only negative about them is casting them into a strong wind - they float like a bloody kite!
If it swims; I want to catch it!

Being very new here,  but having been around the traps for a while, I have to say that is probably the best review of its type I have ever read.  Thank you very much Brandon.

And I am delighted to read that you are a fan of Adhek's range. I love these and my favourite is also the Long Goby which is a fantastic, straightforward fast cranker. One that you did not mention but in my experience is a great popper for choppy conditions, is the 30 cm Ocean Lady.

Thanks again for a most informative post.

Used the Cubera 180's recently in Mozambique - fantastic lure casts easier, pushes loads of water, does not cartwheel and reasonably priced!
