Great idea using the weight in the eye!  I hate making lips, so I've been looking ore and ore into lipless cranks like this.  Nice looking little lure.

Thanks.. it wasnt as difficult as i thought it would be.. the key is getting the line tie location right.. i made 4 indentions to try different line tie locations, but the first one i tried worked great, so i didnt even have to drill any holes to fill later

Im completely satisfied with the action, and it didnt take any tuning to get it that way surprisingly ....... it has a tight subtle vibration, enough to clearly feel down the rod, but not as heavy a vibration as a real rat-l-trap, likely because i did not flatten the leading edge of the nose
