    Crankbait build coat

    For you guys that build cranks , specifically BALSA what products are you using for the "build" coat?, the white undercoat, I have used many things at this point and wondered if there was an actual go to product...Thanks

    Lure Maker Wanted

    The original twitchin rap (BALSA) was lights out on inshore saltwater species, it basically justs sits on the surface with slightly tail down which makes it walk the dog, the size was deadly on snook, trout ,tarpon and redfish, obviously it wasn't too durable being that toothy critters loved it .

    ETex topcoat problems

    ETEX is really thin and takes a while to start to set up, my best guess is that you are getting a lil too much on at one time so it is pooling even while being turned, good luck.

    Look great, How do you do your hook eyes?...are they screw ins or something you make?

    Lure consistency

    I believe you find a lot of them at lure collector shows because they appreciate the quality, also they tend to be tournament guys, looking for an edge or to have something that the others don't have...I can tell you that most do not show the general public what they actually use unless its on purpose and the cameras rolling, sponsors need love too.

    Mustad Triple Grip Hooks

    They are expensive but imo well worth it ...

    Mustad Triple Grip Hooks

    I use a lot of that style hook as well, not sure if you can get what you want in that style hook, maybe try a # 2 std split ring with possibly a finesse treble by a.martens in a #2 or they may even make those in #3, they are very lightweight, might get there using those. Best of luck.

    Multiple Airbrushes

    I use 3 , 2 iwatas and a paasche, all are siphon feed with jars, also use urethanes and lacquers for the most part, I like the stuff to dry ...def. speeds things up.

    Bagley Shiner/Pinfish

    There are blanks out there from the original plant there in Winterhaven, I know a guy who has them , if you are interested in painting some up for your personal use I can give you his name , I am sure he would sell them since he has asked me more than once about me buying them...
