Looks like all the tackle company's are going for the micro barb now. This has happened because of the old Barbed or barbless, so they must have thought..... hmmmm <!-- s:idea: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_idea.gif" alt=":idea:" title="Idea" /><!-- s:idea: --> How about micro barbed? <!-- s8-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8-)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8-) -->

Just about the same as crushing the barb with a pair of forceps isnt it? May just start buying micro barb and save myself the trouble. <!-- s:idea: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_idea.gif" alt=":idea:" title="Idea" /><!-- s:idea: -->

Not really mate, crushing the bard more then likely will crush it right off so your basically using a barbless, To save time and hassle off the bailiff it might be easier to buy micro barbs. ;)

Not if your careful mate. Leaves a small lump big enough to be a better hookhold than barbless. Got to be careful of some barbless waters as they still class barbless as barbed unfortunatly. :rolleyes:
