Hevisteel

6 posts in this topic

So has anybody tried the new Hevisteel. It is billed as Hevishots little brother and isnt quite as expensive as the Hevishot is. I think that it runs about $20 per box of 25.

Used it last year during Duck season and HATED IT. I had better luck with regular steel and of course Hevi Shot or Kent Matrix.

3" #6's didnt pattern worth a crap in my super x2 which uses the invector + choke system. ended up shooting pigeons to burn up the box.

Carp, was the bad pattern caused by shooting too tight of a choke? I think you have to open up to at least mod, or possibly improved. I havent had a chance to try any yet but wilol definitly pattern before going hunting with it

I used 3 1/2" hevi-steel 4's on ducks this year and it killed a lot more ducks per shot than the faststeel 2's that I usually use. My best 40 yd pattern was with the factory mod. rem choke. The hevi-steel has been recently redesinged. If u had the red hull shells they are the old design.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
