Check eBay because there was a guy selling custom ones he moulds himself. I think he can even customise colours for you as well as depth/action etc.

I've got rid of all my burts and have got a few big dippers from Dave Greenwood.

Handmade correctly weighted lures at a similar price to burts.

No rattles but i can live with that.

No more re-weighting, repairing leaks and the rest of the usual issues you get with the burts.

There's a number of tackle dealers across Europe that stock them... just search the web and you'll find them. Also, you'll not pay any import tax, as you often have to from the States. One very trusted shop I have used on many occasions is Lundgrens in Sweden. Great service and some mega nice hand made lures always on sale - orders usually arrive within only a couple of days, which is better than many UK sellers! I've bought Burts from them in the past and they speak the lingo if you phone them.

To be honest though mate, you're better off looking for something similar but custom made because as said above the quality isn't the best.

The constant need to fettle them is half the fun and adds to the mystique.

Best place to find burts in the UK is generally in bins :D

I have 2 SBs and have never caught as much as a jack on either. Very frustrating lures that drive me mad. In fact they drive me mad no longer cos I never use the feckin things any more.

Your Irish Pike need educating.
English Pike love 'em to bits.

Mark Ackereley was fishing on the 2nd biggest Irish lough when a pike attacked his float. He chucked a SB at it and caught a 34!!!

Anyone who has watched Riverpikers ‘one epic day’ on YouTube cannot doubt the Burts - only themselves for not using them correctly.

If you can't catch on a Squirrely Burt it's time to take up golf.

I can relate to that, because I once thought the same, but constant praise from very good anglers convinced me that the problem was not the lure, but how I was using it, and that proved to be the case. The Sq. Burt is a lure that's always in my box now.

A big part of the battle is confidence. Not only in the lure, but that you're using it properly, and the pike will tell you when you've got that bit right :thumbs:
