S Waver 200 Broken after 3 rd cast.

Postby norcalracer » Sun Apr 27, 2014 7:55 am

I had a tourney sat. i was throughing my new S Waver 200. About the 3rd cast i starting my retrieve and something just felt weird.I brought it closer to find the rear half of the bait gone.Im so glad i didnt hook a big fish with this thing at this happened. check your 200's maybe yank hard on the rear of them. the eyes were still attached to the front half so the pin must have slid out somehow.

I'm always amazed at how well plastic jointed baits hold up. Most of the strain on the joints is during the cast, and when the bait lands. Your line and rod actually protect it, once a fish is on.
It sounds like the hinge pin may have fallen out.
Try adding a drop of crazy glue on the top and bottom of the place the pin enters the rear section before you start fishing a new lure.
No matter what happened, I'm sure River2Sea will take care of you.
