Small Cover Crank

Sintra body, 2" long. Really like this design so far.

This one definitely looks good. I've noticed these baits you have been posted have all been Sintra; how do you like the action on it compared to the balsa cranks you have fished? Have you tried any of your designs in balsa yet?

Smokey,

I haven't tried making any of these designs out of balsa, so I'm not sure how big the difference is.

I'll need to do some more actual lake testing to get a better idea of the differences, but I've done some "test tub" videos (yes - in a tub) that you can watch on YouTube.

Here's a link to my vids:

Cool. That white with the black stripe down the back on your protos makes it really easy to see the action; definitely have some nice wiggle going on with those.

Does the Sintra wood have a different buoyancy than balsa. And love the color pattern on this bait.

Sintra is an expanded foam board (PVC)......it's not as buoyant as balsa.
