Re: Wheeleez XL Kayak Cart

Well I ordered one and arrived Friday. Took the kayak for test ride on the trolley and what a difference. Beach that was impassible now easily traversable. Rolls easily over loose shingle that previously was just not possible. Doesn't fit in the frog hatch but all good thanks.

Re: Wheeleez XL Kayak Cart

So obviously these are great over sand just wondering on a shingle beach. How puncture resistant are theyonshape stones sticks and shells? Would the30cm version be ok with an ultra 4.3 and would it fit in the front hatch of the ultra. Thanks for your advice.

Re: Fluoro leader for soft bait

Hi Kev Try using a simple uni knot and once tied well it will suit everything you need, IE back to back uni`s for braid to leader connection, to jig heads... keep it simple... Hows this compare to the FG knot? I find this a great knot on land and use it when attaching braid to mono or fluro... but s...

Re: Gulp pack vs tub

Think there is only 15 jerk shad 5 inch in a gulp tub now... at least that's my count. The tub now seems to be a new shape also..... smaller too so not sure it that equates to less juice. Thenormal price i can find is $29.99 a tub and $12.95 a pouch. Rebel sports often has sales though as does the w...

happily Winch's ute box drops straight in too - a really useful bit of kit, and sadly out of production now it seems, so if you have one look after it
