Sharkbanz fishing

Hey fishos,

I mentioned this in the coral bay thread but just wondering if anyone has used the sharkbanz fishing device that you tie to your line? Would love to hear some feedback and if they actually work? Surely someone's tried them

 My missus brought me one for Christmas  couple of years back when they first came out , used it for one surf ,  then i remember watching  the  news that night and some kid in America got chomped on the leg that day while surfing  with a shark banz  on his other ankle , it sat in my shed since then

 Looking at that video I wonder if it be worth one fisher using a banz and anyone else on ur boat not using a banz. Maybe then the sharks may leave the line with banz alone and just pilfer the other line/lines

I bought one to trial in coral bay next week. Not at all convinced it will work. 

Worth a try though, i will let you know by mid next week

Sharkbanz

 Dont waste your money.

I took 2 up to coral bay, first one i watched a shark eat the sinker/sharkbanz 10mts under the boat, while leaving the gold band id hooked alone.

The 2nd one lasted 2 drops before i hooked a decent fish and that got eaten aswell.

On the plus side, the fishing was mostly really good, had our bag everyday before 10am
