So, after favorable reviews and using the larger TA clips for spin fishing, my buddy and I decided to try the new micro mini TA clips for flyfishing. Fishing side by side, both using the same white deceiver (that I tied),but I used the clip while my buddy tied direct, my partner proceeded to catch and keep catching while I had not a touch. After landing his 6th striper, I decided to take off the clip and tie direct. First cast, a fish. Second, etc. I just have to attribute it to the fish being spooked by the shiny clip or the different movement of the deceiver when tied to the clip, in the Cape s very clear water. Will give the micro mini clip another try here on Long Island where the waters aren t as clear and see if there s a difference but, as of now, I m hesitant to use them.
I was a little skeptical of these power clips, but they have been fantastic. It is easy to change lures, plugs, etc. and you can react to any situation quickly. I have had no decrease in hook-ups, so the fish don't seem to mind the additional hardware. Great product!
I use the 50lb early season and usually the 75lb for the rest of the year. Strong and easy to use. Great product.
These clips are bullet proof! Stand up to countless lure changes, and don't affect the action in any perceivable way.
