Chris (Chappy) is still making blades! I use his predominantly and find they work better than most especially at slower trolling speeds. His Coolwater color is the one I mostly use both vertical and horizontal.
Fished both those colors this season with some excellent results. Most 5lbs fish I've ever caught out of Winni. Thinking it was lack of 3&4 YO Salmon in the lake. Some very heavy Bows too :-) Capt. Bobby
