There is a lot of talk about the differences of soft vibes over the traditional metal vibes. The hottest part of the argument relates to one being superior to the other. For many, they have their favourite and won’t be convinced by anyone to change their view. In the end, the issue is broadly subjective and very much relative to experience. So what is the ultimate truth? Is metal better than soft or vice versa? Often the best answers can be extracted from tournament Pros with many taking an attitude that it’s best to be equipped with both. There are subtle differences in their actions that have proved very telling when deployed.
We are very used to the intense vibration and buzz of the traditional vibe lure. If we were to highlight a significant difference between the metal and the plastic it would be that the plastic is a lot more subtle. The vibration or action is tight, the buzz far less pronounced. Does this make them less attractive? Not for a minute. The wise angler knows full well that fish are particularly moody. You may well think the conditions suit a traditional vibe only to find it doesn’t get a look in. A switch to the plastic vibe lure, and it gets smacked instantly. On a different day, the result may be reversed. Think of it like this. There are days when you feel like eating chicken, but the idea of a baked chicken does nothing to stimulate you, however, the thought of a chicken schnitzel makes you ravenous. Both are chicken dishes but the flavour and presentation are different. Fish are kind of similar, so covering all your bases and ensuring you have a selection of soft vibes on hand is kind of critical.
