  1. It's 3" wide total and notched 3/8" from each side for rail clearance 'Bout Time Mike
  2. Received a reply from Shark today "Hi Mike, Thank you for your order and your interest in our flashers! We just introduced them to the market last July after a few years of prototype testing. We are still perfecting our techniques on our finishes. Each one is hand painted so they are not all exactly alike. I do not know what happened to those eyes. I will check with our supplier of eyes and make sure the adhesion on them works well with the type of stickers we use. No one else has mentioned these issues. I appreciate you bringing this to my attention. Good Fishing! Suzanne Shark Trolling Products" It is kind of what we figured but just wanted to update everyone they did reply to me Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  3. That is the tension for when it is set to freespool. Most guys tighten it just enough that it keeps the line from going out too fast and backlashing. If it's too tight your line will not go out Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  4. I read to use forward most hole on front and the outside tail hole on rear for best action. I also read that adding a swivel to the fly instead of direct tie kills the action. Have not tried yet Sent from my SM-G900V using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  5. I recently ordered some new shark flashers to try this year. When I received them I was not impressed with their finishes and differences between same exact flashers. I emailed Shark as well as sent a FB message (which they read) but received no reply back. Below is what my message was to them "just ordered some flashers online. They came in and look good but out of 5 ordered 3 have different finishes. I ordered 3 money shot 2 are identical and the third is missing the eye and has only green dot on one side and on back it's has black green and orange dots. I also ordered 2 high voltage. One has an eye on it and the other doesn't. Also one is frosted white finish and the other a UV type. Is this normal to have such different finishes and colors on the same exact flashers ?" These are minor differences but very noticeable. Like stated above, 2 of the money shot have eyes, green dots painted over black on both sides and the third is green only on one side with the other side having orange, black and green and no eye. On the 2 high voltage, similar issues one eye and one not, one is clearly a frosted white and the other a UV type. Was wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences with Shark flashers? While they are not show stoppers it was definitely not the product quality I expected. I almost always buy in person but thought I'd try these, lesson learned perhaps. Disclaimer- this is not a Bash on Shark as I run their weights and am very impressed and a satisfied customer on that aspect Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  6. Thanks for all the advice. Everything went as expected screws anchors reattachments and now road to recovery. I will ask for advice as the season nears for best all around lower poundage bows with fingers crossed On a side note I had the Doctor upgrade the drag washers and increase the gear ratio while he was in my shoulder. Fish beware and hope to be posting by May. Sent from my iPhone using Lake Ontario United mobile app
  7. Thanks for all the information and words of advice. I go in feb 6 and I'm hoping to be back in the boat by mid April and if all goes well back in a tree this fall 'Bout Time Mike
  8. Just found out I have a SLAP (superior Librium) tear in my right shoulder. It's is a complete tear from the 10 o'clock to 3 o'clock position. They are going in and grinding the bone, installing a couple screws and anchors and reattaching everything. My question is this : Has anyone had this surgery or similar and still able to bow hunt? I am right handed and the doctor said it's a 50/50 for bow hunting. This hurts more than pain itself, as I like most on here, live to bow hunt. 'Bout Time Mike
  9. What are the dimensions 'Bout Time Mike
  10. Thanks Dave
  11. I use 12lb test. Like spoonfed if I have a experienced crew on board or if fish get really line shy I will leader down to 8. 'Bout Time Mike
