Also have you had more strikes on a steady or mixed retrieve?

Steady retrieve. There is a certain speed that gives it a certain plop sound.

Bone color as posted above is tough to beat.

Overall, the 130 size is more fun to throw. Casts better and bigger, more violent strikes. Retrieves better in choppier conditions.

110 might get more numbers.

Bone 110 and 130 both work well. Mono and steady retrieve.
