Trying to track down a few RC .5 bodies

19 posts in this topic

I managed to buy a few RC  type  .5 squarebills from Dinger,  but they were out of the deep diving .5's.

Anyone have a few or a place to get some?

I'd pick up a dozen or two of each if I could.

New year is an S crank. Flicker is a Little John I believe. D7 is a #7 Shad Rap/Berkley Flicker Shad

I thought the New Year looked like the S Crank but I couldn't tell from the gills when comparing it to a photo on TW. Many thanks!!!

Do you have any experience with the New Year on the water?

I have fished the Predator ones and dont care for them. Body is so bulbous and buoyant. I much prefer a stand squarebill.  I didn't see any "searching" action that the real MB one claims.

But others love em so what do I know.

I did catch an 8# channel cat on one tho.

I have fished the Cedar Run version and like it.  A six pound bass also liked it, so now I like it even more.

how's the hunting action? as advertised per MB or different because it's a blank?

I don't know. I think it works the way MegaBass describes, but I haven't fished that bait since late spring.  I probably won't get a chance to go for a couple of months. If I do, ill try it out. In the mean time, maybe someone else can weigh in on it.

I doubt you will find any blanks with good hunting action.

I have used the Predator s-crank. It hunts with a fast retrieve. If you don't get the same results, try a lighter belly hook, lighter topcoat. The same weight, weight distribution, lip, and shape produce the same results. They have to, or every other Boeing 747 wouldn't be capable of flight . The question is which suppliers / manufacturers will pay attention to such details. The origional S-crank is also mass produced in China.

Your weight transfer rattling 2.5 square bills are the best!
