  1. Yea I was thinking Createx copper pearl would be similar, but it does appear lighter in color on their website. I figured it wouldn't be very hard to make it darker, but thought that someone might manufacture a color that is closer. Thanks, that sounds pretty easy. Thanks for the help.
  2. I saw a crankbait with a color that I have not been able to figure out how to mix. It is an extremely dark copper color. I have provided a link to the particular bait. The color I am referring to is "green copper shad. Any help on how to achieve this color is greatly appreciated. http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Luck-E-Strike_Rick_Clunn_Freak_Crankbait/descpage-LSFREAK.html#multiview
  3. Mattman, What grit scotch brite pad do you use? Do you wet sand the blank with the scotch brite pad as well?
  4. How did the scatter rap cast?

    Fascinator Crankbait

    Did you use a stencil for the vertical bars? That perch pattern looks fantastic!
  6. Also check out Dakota lakes tackle and watch his tutorial about making stencils. I believe he mentions what material he uses for his and it seems to work great based on his video tutorial.
  7. I believe Mylar is a popular stencil material that forms very easily when heated up with a heat gun and vacuum sealed to the lure. Type in Mylar material in google and search through the various places to buy it from. I'm not sure on the thickness, but look for something similar to the original stuff that worked for you.
  8. Do you guys only buy the matte finish or is the spring back wire with bright finish the same thing only with a bright finish?
  9. Thank you for the tip about Google translate. I did run into another problem though. I went through the whole process of registering to the website and even added some things to my shopping cart. When I got to the checkout process, it never asked for a credit card number, but gave me the option of paying at the post office when I pick it up? This really did not make any sense to me, and why it couldn't be delivered to my house, bur rather to the post office for pickup? If anybody could help me out with this that would be great.
  10. Thanks Gino. That is a pretty cool website. I might have to buy a few scatter raps and do the same to post here on TU.
  11. Has anyone ever taken the time to cut apart or disassemble Rapalas or any other type of crank bait to see how it is put together? I was watching a video yesterday about the Rapala fat rap 1, and for a split second it showed the balsa body unpainted with a plastic insert between the two balsa sides that looked to contain a weight, rattle and thru-wire system. I think it would be interestingto buy a new scatter rap and cut it apart to see what is inside, to try and figure out how they get the particular action out of the lure besides from the lip and body shape. Could open a new world of ideas.
  12. Thanks for the replies. I will have to experiment with different thicknesses to see what works for me.
  13. Has anyone found a website in English that sells these curved lips similar to the ones from that Finland website?
  14. What thickness of balsa do you guys usually buy. 1/2 in., 3/4 in, or something else?
  15. That is an awesome pattern. Do you use a stencil for that gill plate?
