My 1st attempt at this was a disaster. This 2nd attempt was a little better. Used a smaller amount of Flex material to produce just about the right thickness for this hollow body bait. It casts, floats, is very durable and pliable, and moves well - maybe not as pretty, but sure is just as functional and much cheaper than the original. Need better fixturing of the mold to the rod dryer, and maybe a little faster motor. Also need to pin the head of hook better so it doesn't move about and get all crooked like it did here. The tail is a little ratty, but that because I re-used it after the 1st attempt and it was messy. The next one to come out better will get more serious detailing and TLC; and maybe a sister frog.
