Blades for bills.

6 posts in this topic

Anyone ever tried using a colorado or indiana spinner blade for a bill? It seem like it would help a little with the ballast, it is reflective to give a little sparcle to bait and it's perferated so it could be held witha screw or the hole would help the glue hold it in place. It would have to be flattened out I suppose.

No need to flatten it out. Check out some of Hazmails baits. He often mounts the convex face forward. Concave forward should give a stronger action.

Try it and report back.

I have read in an old luremaking book about such as well .

If you use them , I'd advise you to mount them with a screw(like you already stated) and/or drill some holes through their base(the portion inside the lurebody) and/or file some tiny grooves into the base's rim , this will help a lot for better glue bondage .

good luck :yay:, diemai

Check out some to the Striper fishing sites, those guys use blades for bills all the time. Most of the blades have been flattened out.

I think I'll try it this weekend with a silicon mold and polyeurothane foam.
