Nice job as usual. I have made a few swimbaits from resin with a similar hinge as well. With the pin so close to the edge, and so little material, I had doubts about the overall strength and ability to hold together under the forces of a twisting Pike or Musky. Do you have some kind of reinforcement like stainless loops or complete wire through? Nice carving, sweet swimming action and as always, beautiful paint work.

that is still something i have to test still ,i could always add reinforcement stainless steel rings inside the joints to add more strength to the joints if it seems that i need it, but so far it seems that i cant brake the joints when i'm twisting them with all the strength i have, i use smooth cast resin and it seems to be very tough stuff .
