Brandon - where would the FCL Ebipop lures rate in your rankings?

They are a very good popper, particularly the Extreme.

I fish them, Crusty, but the Fullscales have had priority in the recent past.

SS have a couple of models that are fantastic but also some rather mediocre ones. I don't know they manage to get some so right and others so wrong.
 
That said, the finish on them is amazing. As I wrote in the original post on thos thread, they are industry leading. Check out the first lure in the first photo of my original post. It's a Nemo in a mother of pearl type finish.

The good models are harder to get hold of than sea frogs!

Hi Brandon,

I have recently bought SS Twister F1 & F2 and love the way they swim. I saw you have their bigger brothers in your collection can I ask if F3, F5 and F6 swim as good or will not be as lively because of their biggest size and heavier weight?

I will be using the EP82/38. If this rod cannot work the larger Twister mentioned above properly, would you recommend the TBL711/35 or BLC83/40 instead if target are both GT and Kingfish?

Cheers
Sam

Hi Sam
all the Twisters have a similar action. F3 and F5 are supposed to be same size with only difference being weight but I have had a F3 that weighed as much as the F5 before so I got a bit confused. F6 is a lot of lure - its 200g+. You'd do a F3 and F5 with a TBL711 but a F6 is a big ask. I think that the BLC, while able to cast both these lures would oversaturate a bit when working them. It'd do it but not ideal. F6 is too much lure.
If it swims; I want to catch it!

Brandon, a local tackle shop ever told me that the weight of SS is plus minus 10g hence it is very possible that sometime a F3 can weight the same as F5 since they are different by 20g accord to SS website. F6 may be use as hammer for mackerel.

Thanks
Sam

I would actually suggest that a deviation from mean of 10g is being very kind

Sebile Splasher 190 and Stick Shadd 182 seem to be getting a lot of coverage these days - used heavily on Nomad.

What are your thoughts on these two models?
