Deep divers built on PVC trim board that Rayburn Guy sent me. The bodies are a Rapala Risto Rap pattern, the lips are G-10 and elongated from the original. The PVC carves nicely but sanding with a Dremel produces lots of magnetized white dust. I had to seal the PVC to avoid bubbles in the paint. Bottom line for me: PVC seems OK for deep divers with minimal buoyancy, but not for shallow baits - JMHO!

Great looking baits! Really like the colors. Bob, I will agree with you mostly about the buoyancy but like different types of wood, different types of pvc will have varying degrees of buoyancy. I recently received some pvc foam board that is more buoyant than the pvc trim board I had worked with before. I guess I am old school; the thing I dislike most about pvc is the feel of the shavings on my skin. I hate it and would prefer to carve a piece of wood any day. Oh.... and the smell is not that great either.
