Iím extremely happy since making the switch from graphite to glass for shallow to med-depth cranks, 1í-12í. My hooked to landed ratio isnít 100% but I honestly canít complain.
Deep-cranking, which Iíll call 12í and deeper, is a different story. Iíll call it 60%-40%, hooked to landed. I came to the conclusion the limited sensitivity of glass which works to my advantage in solid hooking in shallow water, works against me in deeper depths.
My deep season is about a month and half AND still makes up maybe only 10% fishing day, at that.
I donít mind spending money on tackle but since Iím not fishing tournaments any more, is it cost effective?
