Lip size for the 1 5/8: Lurecraft Balsa Crank ?

4 posts in this topic

I picked up some of the 1 5/8 inch Balsa crank bodies from Lurecraft-- what size lip would best fit that size bait? I purchased a few sizes but one is too long and the other too short. Any "best" size? Thanks

@ Shmang

Can't you shorten the bigger ones ?

Sounds like your baits are pretty small , maybe you'd be lucky downloading the catalog of Welcome to Moore's Lures , there is a size chart of lips in there(though most likely bigger ones , just a few small) , problem would only be , to size the PDF file correctly on the screen , so that you could have a direct comparison .

good luck , diemai:yay:

I use a lip with about 1/2" exposed length. I cut them from polycarbonate but you can cut a bigger lip down with tin snips, or sand it down with a Dremel tool.

Thanks gents. I will be modifying one tonight to test it out. I scoped out a few bandits to get a better understanding of what "should" work. I sure appreciate the help. Take care
