New and old
This is my new bluegill swimbait (top) compared with my older bluegill (bottom). The new one swims better even with one fewer joint, due to the type of hinges used. I used twisted-wire hinges in the new one, and they work much better (for me) than the other hinges I used.
I also did more realistic detailing and paint on this new bait. I found a way to make round scales instead of diamond-shaped scales, and that helped the appearance a ton.
What do you think?
