i went to the local sporting goods store late at nite to find a lipper. i wanted the Boga Grip, but all they had was a Berkely that felt really flimsy, the Rapela Guide that was too heavy, and the Rapela Lock-n-Grip which i ended up buying. looking at this thing compared to the Boga Grip makes me wonder if it can just plain rip the lips off a fish? it also seems larger in the clamping mechanism, but it won't matter if only one end is going into the mouth. i haven't used it yet thanks to finicky fish, but has anyone had experience with the Rapela Lock-n-Grip? it's of nice build quality and is handy in it's setup. clings nicely to my wading pack strap too.
take him fishing
