You'd be paying a little over the odds at £26 Jimmy.

There are a couple of YouTube videos featuring them. Not tried them myself, but they look interesting and seem to work.

The action looks amazing they are different to others lures. I’ve got sinking, suspending and floating and can’t catch on them heard the same from others seem to work well for the guys selling them on Facebook. I’ll keep trying!

same as Slug, I have the floating, sinking and suspending. I've yet to catch on them yet, but their action in the water is fantastic. I know I will catch on them.

I have several mixed, floating, suspending and sinking. I bought them on the recommendation of Artur, a little excitable Polish guy I bump into while boat fishing on the river and 1 or 2 local lakes. He spends most of the day thrashing the water with lures, even in winter, and always seems to catch while I'm struggling. When I asked him what I was doing wrong he said ''Headbanger.!!...Get Headbanger..!!..''...so I did. After a tough winter, where I struggled in general with pike, I can at least say that reasonable sized (4-8lbs) brown trout are willing to regularly sample trolled Headbangers. :thumbs:
Time will tell with pike, I suppose...

Thanks for the offer mate but I think I’ll just leave them where they are for now 👍

I like them. Action is good and I have had a lot of fish on mine, ( Roach suspending ).
Good trolling lure too. Like most things lure related they might not work on your water. For me in clear 5 - 10 foot water, I really rate them.
