3 posts in this topic

im really looking into this autoloader it can shoot from 2 3/4 to 3 1/2s and i have seen great reviews. has anyone had any experiences with them? has anyone seen them at your local stores? how much are they going for ? i know the retail price listed in the remington website is like 460 or so. thank you in advance for any prices and locations where you have seen them. I have called a couple of stores and they dont have them available. ill probably have to drive around on saturday and look for one.

Cabelas in Owatonna, MN has them. I looked at one this past Thursday. They are priced at $279.99, and if you want my honest opionion after looking at it and holding it, they are asking about $200 too much for them. Cheap looking/feeling parts, was very front heavy (that's without shells in it too) fit and finish was hard to look at. The lettering looks like it was done with a dremmel tool and some white-out.

I too see the website lists them for around $460, and I am wondering if some of the parts, and the fit and finish will be more appealing after this lot is sold??

Just my limited opinion. It may very well be as reliable as a Gold, or a X2, but I don't honestly think I will ever find out because I can't stand to look at them.

Just my .02

USPENAMC, I read one of your other posts and if your looking for a good auto loader in the $600 range, Cabelas in Owatonna, MN are selling remaining Winchester Super X 2's in the 3" Mag for $599.99.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.

      Captain Acorn, I fish Jiggin Raps quite a bit on Vermilion, have for several years now.  I Cast em, fish them vertical and move around and cover ground at a good pace with them.  I am not sure there is any key to getting snagged less, other than knowing your spots. They are certainly an effective and a great way to catch fish.  I personally do not remove either the front or the back hook.  Believe me if you fish these your going to donate a few to the depths, just part of the game.    Good luck! - Roosterman
