Mannís Twofer: Mannís name this lure quite obviously because they believe you get two lures for the price of one as you can connect to either end of the lure. In one position it is a blade tailed popper and in the other position it is a blade nosed stick bait. However we have discovered while testing that it can actually be fished in three ways, when attaching to the blade end if you run it rod up the blade obviously spins creating a good surface wake. However if you run it with the tip of the rod close to the water, it will run just over a foot down and wiggle side to side (similar depth to the 1-Minus) which is very handy on those days when the pike / bass are just not quite brave enough to take a top-water.

Peter Finnis with a 35lb Cobia caught on a Magnum Chug-n-Spit while on a recent trip to Florida.
Magnum Chug-N-Spit: This is the biggest commercially available popper in the world, 7Ē long and weighing in at 4 ozs (that is as big as a Cornetto). On a beachcaster Iíve personally chucked these things over 100 yards and several seasons ago caught two 3lb bass on the same lure at the same time, one on each hook! They are dynamite for pike in the summer and autumn and all big tropical saltwater fish; We have had catfish on them in Mequinenza, I have got customers who have caught Barramundi on them and on the first day of a trip to Lake Nasser I had one snaffled off the end on the first cast and who knows what we could have achieved in a week. This lure is not for the faint hearted, it is big and it is loud. If you want to get noticed this is the tool.
Loudmouth Chug-N-Spit: is not just a standard popper, it has a hole in the top through which water passes when ripped. with a series of short rips the water enters the cup face and spouts out the hole in the top, making this lure ďChug and SpitĒ, a simple yet ingenious adaptation, especially when you consider this lure is almost 30 years old. Made from high impact polycarbonate with ball bearings that shift to the tail to add weight when casting, you can see that back in the 70ís this lure was truly ahead of its time (think how many other manufacturers CLAIM to have invented this system).
