Here's a lure I just finished for a friend. The body is carved from mahogany. Four section swim bait that measures exactly 7",slow sinking. Measured in at 2.4oz. Silver leaf foil, small glass eyes, lexan carved fins, 1/0 Stingers. I used createx for my paint. I was hesitant on the paint job, but after the final coat of etex the iridescent paint over silver leaf always gives off so many colors when you move it around. I'm really happy with the way it came out. Took it to the river for the final swim test and even on the slowest retrieve it has amazing movement. The tail will swim back and forth 2-3 times in just 12 inches. The most movement I've gotten so far out of a swim bait.
