Bought a few to go up north with. As has been mentioned they are good for the price and they are easy to work. I had better luck with stickbaits than poppers up there though.

Yes. The 105mm blue one absolutely slayed the salmon off gunnamatta a few years back. I carry one along with a 1.5oz gt icecream for when they are thick, find the bigger more aggressive fish often take surface lures.

See above, only thing I'll add is they are a bit floaty in the air and can come out of the water if you pop too aggressively. Have heard of people filling the back with lead to help with this but never tried it myself.
