kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Weightless, added some lead wraps on 2 in this batch but they sink well with just the hook weight. 3/0 b10-shank-2/0. Plenty castable on a 9 with 350 grains.

How do you like that big game iron jaw or whatever they call it?
For deer hair bugs and bigger streamers I really like it. It took a little getting used to as far as how much tension to crank down for the hook, but it's working really well for me. I like knowing when I'm pushing hard on a hair bug that hook is going nowhere.
