Charlie Brewer Slider Heads

Mike Clifford

Recommended Posts

The most productive, I've found to date,

are the Owner Bullet Head, and

the Finesse Head by Luck-E Strike.

Both feature a premium grade hook.


I prefer the Luck-E Strike brand, over others---

it features a longer shoulder, which results it better holding of the plastics.


The Finesse Head models are the best for horizontal presentations.


GAT stocks both, for an avid anglers fishing enjoyment.

Its good someone around here stocks slider heads. I went to the new Cabelas store for the 2nd time and they still don't have slider heads. I told them I'm sure I'm not the 1st to ask & I guarantee I won't be the last to ask. They don't listen. They make more money selling stuff designed to catch fisherman instead of fish.


I like the spider sliders with the 3/0 hooks. That wide gap slider has a very very thick hook. You really have to hammer home the hookset to bury that through the plastic & a fish.

Don't get upset with the people that work at the big box stores, they don't have control of whats offered.

They have to sell what they have available.

Corp/hq buyers, decide what they'll stock.


Some employees may pass-on the word.

It has to go thru the dept manager, then to the store manager, then to hq---in writing.

That process make take 2 or more weeks.



At GAT's, if I don't have it in stock, I can get most objects within a week.

In some cases, I get it in a couple days.

Availability is dependent on the distributors warehouse stock.


Some items I have to obtain from the OEM---

they require MIN $$$ order, MIN order quantity, shipping costs and lead time.

Lead time is 2 weeks MIN.

A little more involved than going down the street to the quickie-mart, for a gal of milk.

(Shipping costs are getting out of control. It changes from week-to-week).


Items from GLoomis, St Croix and Shimano, I get in 3 days, providing they have it in-stock for immediate delivery.

They are just a phone call away---(I have them on my "Speed-Dial").


Many of my customers tell me, "it's good to know the buyer".
