    always failed in sinking crank,help!!!

    Siniyo if you make the lip narrower it will still dive deep .You could cup it like Hazmail have shown in some of his tutorials this will help in giving the lure action .

    Siniyo have you tried other lips on the lure? Sometimes a too big lip can kill the action on small lures .Try to place the linetie lower towards the lip or even on the lip .

    Dieter Center of gravity has some to do with center of movement , but thats a thing you can tinker with after you have a working lure to get "hunting" action incorporated to your lure . But thats a complete diffrent issue . If you ook at Lapala

    The x-point would be the nonmoving part of the lure seen from above ,its the axis of movement. For example if you take your lure to a stream set it barely submerged you will have a point on your lure that barely moves at all thats the x-point

    Sinyo if you use a denser/heavier kind of wood that barely floats build 5 alike lures on the first you DONT add any weight at all . Finish it completely testrun it so it swims find the centre of movement ,the so called X-point in which it doesnt move seen from above THIS is your weighting point . Now add a light weight to it so it sinks with the desired sinkingrate ,if done correctly you´ll have a perfectly swimming sinking lure . You dont have to look at other x-rayed baits since they are calculated by a whole team of designers and computers if you follow my simple guide to building a sinking lure.

    Diving Lips for tiny crankbaits

    You can look for Sicovinyl often used for faceshields any woodworking company should carry those. Easy to bend with pliars or vices

    Propionate blush cure?

    Are you painting on top of prop? If so why are you afraid of the blush? I have never bothered to remove it unless i use prop for a topcoat . I havent seen any reaction from underlaying blush whatsoever on the lures i made .
