I'm wondering if any of you fine Gents, having time before the Super Bowl...lol
know where I can purchase or make the kind of churning blades that are used on baits like the Bucher "Super TopRaider" or baits like it.
Thanks for any in put you might have.

I looked at 3 different sites and they all used the same poor picture. You may have to buy one and reverse engineer it. It doesn't look like anything to difficult, just can't see it clearly enough to identify a blade source.

Very unusual 'prop' (for my eyes anyway) but can see it would be a good attractor, these guys seem to have some good /different ideas on props / blades - are they any good? pete

Thanks to all with answers to my question. I'm on the track with Dickie Moores lures, as I've ordered from them in the past. Just didn't recognize the blades I was looking for on their site, but I have now.
Thanks again all. - The Muskyman

To make something like a Top Raider, you will need a "Tallywacker" tail (style L in the Moore's catalog)
Creepers are a completely different lure. A Heddon Crazy Crawler is a creeper.

I went to make an order at moores and the web site said closed until April! This is another tallywacker tail I found.

Dick Moore goes on vacation in February and March. you can't blame him for escaping the cold N. Wisconsin winter for awhile.Don't give up on him though! He has stuff nobody else has, and is a great guy to deal with.

Thanks Rollo. I really was impressed with all the really obscure stuff that he carries & plan on doing a lot of business with him in the future.
