Don't know if there are any complete kits around for sale, but you can buy all the components you need at Janns Netcraft or staminainc.com.

A lot depends on what you are looking for. I know board sponsor Hagen's carries bodies...But are you looking for plastic or wood? Fresh or Salt? Popper or Torp?

There's kits out there for each, or as Bob said, Janns among others carry bodies/supplies...

Just use a light wood like poplar or basswood and go easy on the weight. Then set your bill at a steep angle so it won't dive very deep.......look at other shallow diving cranks to get an idea of the angle you need.
