    I don't think you can pull the knots hard enough the skirt won't spin.

    Ned rig mold

    You're killing the baits action by using a hook that large.

    swimmin spy jigs

    I may have to break out my "spy" spinnerbaits with black and yellow vinyl skirts. Been hanging in the garage for about 40 years.

    Wouldn't just the wood density vary more than .010? You can keep the paint and sealer coat within .010? All the hardware used doesn't vary more than .010, when aggregated?

    Why do you want a flat eye on the ned rig?

    Do-It Midwest Finesse Jig Mold with Wire Keeper

    All my custom spin molded ned heads use a #2 Lil Nasty, anything bigger kills the action IMHO. I also have no head heavier than 3/32, above that I go to a shakey head.

    What Are You Looking For In A Shakey Head

    I use a 5/0 and like the 1/16 ounce best, however I also use both traditional ball heads. The original ball heads have a different fall if rigged correctly, that works well for suspended fish.

    This is actually on of the few taxes I don't mind paying, most comes back to sportsmen.

    Looking For Missouri Craw Skirt

    Thinks it more where it became popular, than the actual crawfish color.
