Ratings - 17-Pound Trout
This was a nice weapon when it was first released, but we have better options now. The vast array of cheap beginner weaponry available today makes this weapon nearly irrelevant.

This weapon is gobbled up by popular shields such as Leaf Shield and Virtupets X-514 Super Shield. Common Dual Duties like Cloudy Wand of Storms, Frozen Wand of Crystals, and Scarab Ring also easily reduce the attack of this weapon.

Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer and Throwing Cutlass would be better and cheaper alternatives to this weapon. Both of these items hit harder and offer slightly more appealing arrays of icons.

A combination of Water, Earth, and Physical has little appeal, and the total icons is just not enough in today's Battledome. This is not a terrible item, but there are simply better options in the price range.

Price/Power (2/5)
6-9 icon weapons are pretty standard affair now days on Neopets. With this item still being semi-costly compared to it's rivals

Easily blocked by common shields, ironically even by shields released in the same place with the rather respectable Fish Scale Breastplate blocking up to half of this weapon.

Alternatives, Upgrades or Downgrades:
Dual wielding the cheaper Obsidian Dagger is a way to get similar icon types dealt for much less NP.

Other Points (1 Bonus)
It IS a fish.

Final Thoughts
This item is really nice looking, but realistically there are more cost effective options around.
