The ILC 1... (in line crank)
PVC... Line through design (no hardware)... Yellow n black spray paint... DT2 top coat
This is my 1st finished/working crank bait... But ill be making all my cranks this way for these reasons:
1) you can snag it, but you cant lose it (unless you're fishing from shore)... No more cringing when one of my kids reach in my tackle box and pull out my favorite crank bait!
2) the single hook may appear as a limitation, but if you think about how a bass reacts to a hook in its mouth, youll see how this one would be hard to throw
3) not only does it swim, but judging by a comparison i did with my 1st prototypes, it appears to swim BETTER than a traditional line tie design... Ill work on getting a video up so you can be the judge
Reasons 4 and 5 you will see in future designs
