Default C17MR vs 17MR

Opinion...
Is the $1(+) more in cost worth it??? Does the "C" model catch more fish???

It is only worth the extra money if you want one of the colors of the C series. I don't think the C series catch more fish and I like the hooks better on the regular mirrodines.

Olive green back with silver sides and chartreuse back with silver sides is all you need bud
Glastronix and iJabo like this.

I agree, I like the colors of the C model.

I've caught a boatload of specs and reds, including a lot of bull reds on the C.

It has been my go-to for the last 3 summers. I've caught litterally hundreds of trout on it... clear sky, dark sky - doesn't matter. This year, I've picked up a good bit of reds off of it too

Well, I ordered a MirrOlure catalog thinking I could order direct and hopefully get some good prices --- NOT!!! The Cs run $8.99 ea and the 17s are $8.49. I exchanged a few email with them (that's L&S Bait Company) discussing Cs and 17s and they told me everything we already know - the only difference between the two lures are the eyes, colors, and the hooks. They are both designed to be fished the same way and for the same fish. Heck, I replace all stock hooks with one size larger for additional weight/casting distance and this doesn't seem to hamper lure action (I tie 'em on w/ loop knots) but I think the larger hooks help with hook-ups. Both are excellent lures, most all of us use 'em, but based on all the fish I've caught on both lures, in my opinion, the additional cost isn't worth it.

I hope you all visited Academy Sports last week and stocked up on 17s at $4.99 ea and their rod sales were quite good as well - 7' Penn inshore rod for $29.99.
