For where you are fishing and the gear you are using I think its going to be a bit hard. Unless ofcourse you have gear that can cast unweighted plastics a mile from the rocks..



I'd guess i'm getting 70ish metres on one. They actually fly quite well. The Sluggo i'm using probably weighs more than one of your arms mind you.

I am well aware how heavy a sluggo is and how heavy my arm is.
As I said earlier. Unweighted or minimal weight if you want it to dance like ducky mentioned before..

I wasn't sure if they came in different sizes or not. Haven't had a chance to get out the last couple of days, will try tonight or tomorrow.
