Thank you Donak! The lips are made from a circuit board material. So far it has been a good choice for this particular crankbait model.

They both look super!

 

I really like the suspending model, both for the fact that it suspends and for the color pattern :)

By the way, can you tell me a little more about these?

 

What material was used, how big are they, etc.? I'd like to feature them on Facebook for you :)

The floater is shown in "Dolphin/Gable" color while the suspending model is shown in "Country Claw" color which is an excellent color in early spring....These are Slounch Slayer MD crankbaits which weigh approx. 5/8 oz and designed to run 8-10 ft deep. All my crankbaits are tank tested and lake tested to make sure it's properly tuned and has the proper action.) They feature premium components from LPO like engraved circuit board lips, #4 VMC short shank treble hooks, 2X SS split rings, UV enhancer, 3D eyes, and a beautiful topcoat(three coats). They have great semi-tight wiggle action and we have caught a lot of Lake Hartwell bass on them this year(you might even see a few of these being used at the Bass Master Classic in Feb.) ....I'm building my website now and trying to have it up by the first of the year. Thanks Curt!

Oh yea these are made from Smooth-On Feather-Lite resin with Micro-balloons added. I love the feel of the resin versus wood.

Great work. Smooth-On advertises Feather-Lite as floating resin, why did you use micro-balloons, and what ratio of resin/micro-balloons did you use.

Featherlite already has micro-balloons added to it but it's not enough. It's not nearly as buoyant as wood. The additional micro-balloons needed will offset the amount of weight it takes to balance your bait. I can't give you an exact ratio as this will very with your lure design. I will give you a tip though....the amount of micro-balloons you will need is based on volume not weight.
