Do all megaboomers have the rattle?

Had no idea mine had a rattle till a visiting member picked it up today and checked.

Cheers, Jim

So at this stage we're running 50/50. Was hoping it was a lower percentage than that

Cheers, Jim

Well I may tip the odds a bit here.
I have 4 Boomers and one unfinished Blank and all have rattles.

Good chance of that BUT the fact is at the moment they are sitting behind Perspex in a display case I need to unscrew the front off to get to so don't judge me to quick

Mine has a rattle and also a few others I know of do !!  If you hold them in the light you can see one side of the Rattle chamber raised ever so little from the lure, also my Barra lure ratlles. 

Sly way to find out who owns these Beauties Jim Tongue

I would say a fair  majority of the earlier ones had no rattles, Ray used to drill a hole most of the way through, drop a round piece of aluminium (made with a leather punch) with a touch of glue on it into the hole. Drop in a small sinker, then another slightly larger piece of ali glued over the hole, Cheers Paul.
