True crappie profile
4 wide profile sections in 3-1/2” length swimbait.
Dual “V” shaped wooden sections do not allow light to pass through the joint between sections.
Through wired hinges and attachment points.
Innovative holographic finish (my invention) resembles scales, provides great highlights, and generates a slight color shift. Pictures do not do it justice.
Split maribou fins and tail cannot foul on hooks, compress when lure is retrieved, extend and flutter on pause allowing for great life even at rest. They do not inhibit the action of the lure like other materials.
