    I am just curious. Have you caught a ton of fish on the ball? Does it produce more than the traditional or two tones? Headed to some trophy trout water and always looking for something new. This could be the ticket.
    any info would be a great help.
    Thanks,
    Wade

    Tarheel. Way to jump in. I have not read you on here all week. I was beginning to worry something had happened to you. Nice tie on that worm. I like the way it looks better than the traditional.

    It tends to catch stockers more than wild ones. Ya Tarheel I thought you had gotten swallowed by a Davidson river bow
