Does anyone know what this stuff is and where it can be purchased???????? I see where some custom lure makers are using it for crankbait lips.

Looks like something I might want to try if I knew a little more about the stuff. THANKS.

I couldn't find pertinent results when I Googled Hexalite, except a few noting that it is a thermoplastic. The lips on the baits you cite look translucent white. I use translucent white G-10 Garolite, aka circuit board for some lips. G-10 is fiberglass or other substrate covered with a thermoset polymer. It comes in different colors from black to green to white and different thicknesses down to 1/32 inch. It's durable and waterproof - excellent material for very thin crankbait lips.

Try McMaster Carr and you will find what you are looking for and they ship fast. If you search there site you might find other items you can use to make your baits.
