    Actually the picture is pretty good. It was just a "double stamp".

    I seriously cannot stop laughing from that.

    The double stamp is too cool. An extra special version if you ask me.

    I'm with the others who say the double stamp just makes it better. The beefiness of the knurled banding make it look like quite a formidable vessel. Perfect for a formidable drink!

    Yeah, there are worse things to be addicted to, that's for sure.

    Here is my rigged Atwood Shiner. Can't wait to cast this baby!

    I added epoxy and a red tritium vial.

    Thanks for the idea...I already have a couple dozen in the tackle box...problem is, the first toothy critter to attack the Shiner will clean cut the GID rings off.

    Barry,

    Split ring through the eye and then a solid ring to your leader if you're going to jig with it.
    Improved clinch a swivel to the other end of the leader then to the trace if you plan to cast or else it will spin like a mofo.

    :highfive:

    The Atwood pieces are works of art. I am a Atwood newbie. I can't wait to get my first piece.

    Thanks Exit14a...I have given a lot of thought to fishing this one...thank you for all the suggestions. I bet the winter flounder would attack this if you put it down and bumped the bottom as a jig.

    I will be chucking this one in the keys very soon!

    Oh wow, I LOVE the picture of the Shiner with the treble hook. That is so cool. :) Thanks for posting.

    The shotglasses are getting closer. The first several dozen have gone out to the passivators and will be back hopefully by Monday at the latest. I'll resume going down the list as soon as I have them in my hands.

    The BigShot that Kendall posted above was one of the two protos so I didn't have a good marking stake setup for my stamp yet. :p Wait until you see the improved finish both from the machining and from the passivation cleaning. They really dialed these in and I'm very happy with them.
