Just wondered what you think?
As a self confessed tackle and advert freak (I even bought Ultrabite!!!)
Where do you draw the line?

Personally, I cannot bring myself to buy a 30-45 MEAT CUTTER!!!!!
Firstly, have you any problems with a knife?
and secondly, everyone advises me to use uneven,irregular shaped bits of meat!
Any other contenders?

With you on this one Trev.
Definatly the meat cutting machines.
I use trays of meat during the season and i use my 4 different sized riddles and all together they dont add upto the price of a meat cutting machine and i can use them for maggots and groundbait aswell.

I'm one for using irregular pieces of luncheon meat. I think fish get used to regular pieces. I find they work better if laid out on a plate with a "fish knife and fork."
(I knew they had a use.)

I was given some Hydro-elastic to use because someone told me it was good. What a complete and utter crock! I can't believe they charge so much for that rubbish. Another gimmick for the purposes of exploitation of anglers. Unfortunately, its not so much the sponsored anglers who get ripped off- its the club anglers who rely on others advise, who seem to be getting the worse end of the stick. Use normal elastic!!!!

Hydrolastic,don't even go there,15 a pack and dont nick it or the fluid leaks out and it's back to square one,i really don't see what the hell it's got to offer.I haven't come across a fish that it could land that a normal elastic couldn't,and if the carp are seriously large i would rather go after them with a rod and reel.

Maybe not strictly angling - but related since used on angling sessions.

I had no problems buying a coffee making machine that would run off the truck's cigaret lighter. Paid a bit more than for one that just plugs into the wall but worth it.

I have refused to pay $200 for a blender that runs off the cigaret lighter though. Or to pay $300 for one that runs off a small gasoline motor.

Nor $250 for a Van Staal 6" needle nosed pliers - even if they are salt-water safe and will cut line nicely.

For pure angling gear, I still haven't found a good excuse to pay $700 for a Shimano Stella Spinning Reel or $2000 for a Van Staal spinning reel - even if it is a salt water one.

draw the line at ultrabite, for me part of the fun is finding some kind of spice/flavouring off the supermarket shelf, making a mess of the kitchen and everything in it while i play with it, then fishing with it and very often for less than a (1.5$)...........it's even better if i catch with it.
