- Swivel: 330# Krok
Yellow and white have been standards in my bag for a long time. They are easy to work, and slash back and forth nicely like pencils are supposed to, without specialized rods or extraneous effort.
One of mine has lost an eye and another has accumulated rust underneath the tail hook / thru wire grommet - but both still catch fish, and 5 or 6 seasons in the salt, and having caught a dozen or so good keepers on each plug will do that. Can't really expect much more durability given the amount and duration of use and the amount of fish caught.
The 2oz is my go-to for most applications and matches a good range of bait size - it's the bigger offering when bait is small and schoolies are prevalent and seems to draw the bigger fish. In the fall when bait is bigger, the 2 oz serves as a slightly smaller offering and can entice solid strikes when fish aren't committing to bigger plugs.
When I need long casts, the bait is bigger, or conditions are rougher and "noisier", I prefer the 3oz to make more commotion and draw attention. The flat bottom 3oz is my Canal pencil and handles the currents well, easily maintain its action, and has the construction to land fish well over 20# in the heavy current.
White and yellow back have been the most productive for me but the mackerel patterns have been killers in the Cape Cod Canal for years and elsewhere when mackerel are around.
Not cheap, but money well spent as far as I'm concerned
Just a solid all-around pencil for anyone's bag.
It comes stock with what seems to be very nice hardware.
It is a wooden plug, so it will be about as durable as any other wooden plug you have. You can also expect some minor crack etc.
2oz allow my avid surf cast long enough. .
and left right action perfect.
finish is the best quality too.
