CLASSIC 120 +3

$18.60

This is the super shallow running version of Australia's most popular Barramundi lure.  Designed by well known lure maker Rob Gaden, the classic is one of the best lures ever made.  Although there have been a number of off shoots of this famous lure, the original is still the best.  The key features of this lure that i believe make it a weapon are lot's of built in action, Just the right amount of rattle, and it's floating tendency.  I find that to make this lure perform even better, it is best to slow down the float time.  The best way to do this is to upgrade the hooks and rings to 90lb Decoy split rings and size 2 Shogun 9066 Trebles.   Making the lure bulletproof, more appealing to Barra, and giving it more weight allowing it to cast further.  Classics can be a bit light compared to other similar lures, making them a challenge to throw in the wind, but performing the hook and ring upgrade as described increases the weight a little from 22.4g up to  23.8g.  Some people prefer to remove the middle hook as they believe it increases the hookup ratio.  I like to Slow roll a classic with occasional light twitches on the pause.  I also find that trolling of the deeper running models gives good results.  MH
