How or were they weighted?

only the A 40 plastic poppers had lead.

nothing in the reverse till they drilled holes in the stern to let the water in for alittle more distance.

BOAT fish do count.

I JUST found one in my basement with the holes drilled in it. I think it was my fathers so that would put it late 60's, early 70's

I'm done

was that just for distance CAPE SAMS ?

i thought perhaps it was to get them to suspend...
and there was a hole plug... (wishful thinking )

story goes, there was a huge school of large just out of reach on the backside sand,,,no one could reach them with the ammo they had...then A.L got a idea of loading up a reverse to reach the school...drilled 2 holes in the back and let the plug fill with water...they got their extra distance they needed....guy's were rewiring their swimmers turning them into reverses..after that Bob.p started making them that way.

I like the BBs & sealed method... as I figure the extra noise/ rattle will help call in Bass in the rough/ turbulent water conditions that I'd be throwing the Reverse into most times anyway... (not to mention you can make them heavier than with just the amount of water in the chamber on the cast will)... Of course the heavier the weight, the more effort to work the plug-- but they'll work even heavy if fished right! I also like to use a single rear large Siwash with a longish squid- skirt dressing it! I like pink or yellow skirts on the Amber Reverse...

I try to carry three differently- weighted (including unweighted) Reverses in my vehicle plug- crate anytime I'm on on- Cape, or wherever squid are running... Thanks for your legacy, Mr. Laine!
