    I know gliders can be very user specific. You could be killing them, hand me your rod and I don't do jack. You get it back and pick up right where you left off.
    That Magic Maker caught at least three members here their first muskie casting. It likes everyone!

    Learning the right cadence helps. Have color options for the right conditions will help further. If I lost all three of the baits I have in one week, I don’t know if I’d look for more on eBay or just pick a different plastic glider and learn that bait.

    I use an old school 5'6" rod and work them with the tip down. Makes line control in post front conditions much easier. I get some odd looks from the guys that started muskie casting the past decade and think you need to use an 8-9' phone pole and always toss a 1# Bulldawg or a huge crankbait. If they only knew the power of smaller lures post front.

    I’ve got an old bass pro shops 7’ muskie rod that is limber by today’s standards. At the end of the cast, the glidin’ rap needs a longer, slower pull that probably would be hard to do with a 5’6” rod. But as it gets closer to the boat, the tip gets lower and the pulls get shorter.

    Limber is good. Many muskie lost due to pulling hooks out with a phone pole and no stretch braid. I was out one day with a guy, the fish were on fire. In 5 hours I boated 6 fish over 25#, went 6-6. He boated two fish out of seven. Just couldn't keep them buttoned up with that super heavy BS. (I also think those super stiff rods with braid don't let the fish get a good hold of the bait, add to that a newer muskie angler that sets the hook as soon as he feels the hit and you have the recipe for lost fish) It's like scum froggin. Fish hits, move the tip towards the fish. Count slowly to three, then set.

    I noticed you danced around it, so can you address the problem ebijack brought up, that being why he had to pay an expensive shipping charge for a product valued at less that the shipping?
