    Decoy Dancing Jacks - assist hooks

    I actually upgraded from the "SS" to the "S" last year but this wasn't due to hook failure it was because I was dropping a few fish, I have found the "S" size better Cheers Yorky

    Decoy Dancing Jacks - assist hooks

    @Territory Lad I've been using them for a couple of years now and am pretty happy with them with no failures except having a hook bitten off by a toadie that grabbed my sinking stickbait Cheers Yorky

    Bandsaw - Snapper Cutlets

    The last snapper I cut into cutlets I froze the snapper then put it's head in the vice with a tub under it then cut into cutlets using a reciprocating saw. I didn't have a stainless blade but if I was planning to do it often I would purchase one, I just cleaned all the paint off of a new blade & used that. One tip is to cut a section out of an ice cream lid, put a slit in it & put it behind the foot plate then put the blade through it, this saves as much "saw dust/meat" going into the saw. I cleaned the saw off with a paint brush & flour to get any residue "saw dust/meat" off. Yorky

    Tackle Guard

    Inox is what I use to maintain my fishing gear, the spray, the grease & the oil & have done for years & am very happy with the results I have had Inox MX3 spray, I don't spray this directly onto my reels. I spray this on a chux & wipe my reels over (do not like getting anything on my line), I wash my gear after every outing & only re-do it when I notice the water not beading after washing the reels down (aprox 4-5 outings) I find it doesn't dry out or put a sticky film on my gear. Info on the spray Description: Inox mx3 is a multi-purpose anti-moisture and anti-corrosion spray lubricant. It is non-conductive, non-corrosive, non-toxic, non-staining and non-static. It doesn’t dry out or wash off with water. Inox contains no acid, silicon, kerosene or dieseline. It is so benign it can be used around food. It is also ideal for siezed nuts or screws, freeing up hinges, door locks, as a cutting or tapping & other machining agent. As the product is non-conductive, it is ideal for removing moisture from car distributor, switches, potentiometers, solenoids, etc. Inox MX6 grease, I use the grease during reel servicing info on the grease Inox Mx6 Food Grade Grease Extreme Pressure, Hi Temp, Food Grade Machinery Grease with PFTE • Food Grade Approved • Smooth light brown grease • Protects against corrosion and oxidation • Does not affect rubber • Temp range -30 to extremely high temps (no melting point) • Extremely pressure tolerance • Suitable for bearings, bushes, chains, hinges, sprockets, slides, splines, conveyor belts and more • Suitable for O rings in potable water applications and O rings & seals on diving gear I use the MX5 oil when I'm servicing my reels or whenever I need to oil any part of them, often I will put a drop on the line roller to keep it free. I find the injector needle great to get oil to hard to get at areas without doing a full reel strip down info on the oil INOX mx5 - 30 ml bottle plus mx 5 injector will keep your Replicas working and looking like new. Use the mx5 injector needle to deliver lubricant to the working parts of your replica. Then rub over the external surface with mx5 using a soft cloth. Inox mx5 contains no carcinogens halogens or allergens. It is non toxic, non static, non conductive, noncorrosive and non staining. Doesn't gum up, become gooey or sticky, dry out or wash off with water. Will not harm metal surfaces, paint or enamel finishes, plastics, fiberglass, formica or neoprene seals. Cheers Yorky I do not work for Inox, but we do sell it in-store

    Shimano Travel Rods

    We tell lot of people that come into the shop that have either broken a graphite rod or are buying their first graphite rod to check out a video on you tube put out by Daiwa called "bending graphite rods". They show the do's & don'ts when using graphite rods. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5fqh2oHZ-E We had a customer who had broken a rod & said that he didn't know why & it shouldn't have broken, when we showed him the video he said "ahhh, yeah, that's what I done" A lot of people are not aware of the content of the video Cheers Yorky

    Crab cooker

    I believe The guy that was making them got shut down because they were unsafe, the bucket although food grade was not once it was heated, the silicone that was used to seal where the element was inserted was not food grade & they were not electrically safe. A few of the stores that had them were told that they faced fines if they continued to sell them. One of the problems you face buying from back yardies Cheers Yorky

    Carp Crab Bait

    Carp didn't get banned with the land based animals and is still available at tackle shops. And you're right it is a great crab bait Cheers Yorky
  15. Need to know what the reel is, if its not a reel designed for casting you may find it very hard. Also are you running mono or braid Cheers Yorky
