Good D'day

Does anyone has used Makrolon GP Clear Transparent Polycarbonate material for lures bib / lip. I have already order same from Amazon and wanted to have feedback on the performance.

Thanks, Raghubir

it should be ok Raghubir, Makrolon is an excellent product .i use Makrolon uv and have no complaints .Some polycarbs have little or no uv stabiliser this means eventually sunlight makes them brittle and slightly brown or yellow in color.The gp does have uv stabiliser and comes with a 5 year guarantee.time will tell mateThumbs Up

Hi

Dave, Chris and Dean thanks for the feedback , infact I was worrried if I have order wrong material. Lexon was quiet expensive and I thought of finding alternative.

Thanks again.

Regards, Raghubir
