I know Moores offers an aluminum version but Im afraid the weight would still be too much.. I was wondering if anyone knew where to buy plastic polycarbonate, lexan or other types of non-metal jitterbug style lips anywhere?.. Musky size preferred.. I know Arbogast is using a plastic lip on the Hocus Locust surface lure and some Japanese lures have a clear plastic jitter lip on them too.. I've ran several searches but haven't come up w/any suppliers of a plastic lip.. I was cosidering putting 4-5 metal lips together to use as a moldmaking prototype to try pouring my own but I wouldnt trust the strength if it were not lexan or a similar strength plastic.. Plus I want clear or even slightly fogged plastic, not white which is what Featerlight cures to..I don't know of any other liquid plastics that both float & cure clear..I do have on stock clear cure plastic but its a sinking variety..I really do not want to increase the belly bulk of the lure any further to make the metal lip work for me.. This started out as a frog body, starting to look like a big rat now!..haha..Attached is a photo of the prototype, jointed legs, will have glass eyes if I ever complete it.. You can see in the pic how I added the angled throat to attach the jitter lip but it still nose dives till the eyes are submerged.. The butt and legs remain afloat..
Any help or info would be much appreciated..!!!
