Megabass Trick/Rocket Darter

Post by SHRIMPER » Fri Apr 08, 2011 7:38 am

Hi fellow tackle tour members,

Can anyone list the differences between these two baits if any? I tried looking on the the Megabass USA site
but they don't list the Rocket Darter anymore.

Thanks,
Frank

if i recall correctly, the Rocket Darter sinks while the Trick Darter suspends

or

The Rocket Darter suspends while the Trick Darter floats..

but I"m pretty sure it's the first scenario

I love the Trick Darter, great bait. Never fished the Rocket Darter.

I bought one off ebay once. It was listed as the Trick Darter but it sank, so I assume it was the Rocket Darter. I only got to use it once on a trip to Lake Mead where it caught me a few Stripers. Unfortunately, after that, I had it with my JDM UL baits that I left at a lake. All those baby griffons, x-55s, x-70s are gone now. :(

I'm sure it was a trick darter. They sink too...just not as fast. Supposed to suspend..best when worked without much of a pause.

The trick darter suspends. I have done well on it. Just hard to take off the 110 to put it on :lol: Good bait though in high pressure/clear water situations where you need something to match the hatch perfectly
