gemini splash down

Post by rickyfella09 » Mon Mar 29, 2010 5:34 pm

Got another splash down to try after losing one with its first cast in the comp on clacton pier a couple off weeks ago. And they work a treat great to cast with. you just move the blue disc and lock the hook on. no problems with the hook coming unclipped which i find annoying X( . now just hope the price goes down.

Thats my only beef with them- the price- but like you say they work- especially great for groundcasting clipped down rigs

i have to agree with the capt on this one i feel,they are a lovely bit of kit,no worrys of unclipping before casting even with on the ground styles,but its that price,but if more anglers but them will the price go up or down? who knows

all the best

The mould is available to buy - which means that they can be made for half the shop price.

lol oi get the ladder out.lol i find the splash down is a great lead to use ive used them 4 about 2 months now and they work every time, great for casting aswell. its a pity about the price, i might buy the mould kit myself just hope there easy to assemble, looks like there isnt much to them but i suppose u dont no until u try. ive know bother gettin old lead cause my uncle's a contractor, so ill def give it a shot.

john :D B-)
