bigbrown, those lures are extremely hard to find. There are a few on ebay but generally not the suspending ones. If you find the jackpot help a guy out :D . I had exactly the same idea as you, using the photo finish on a copy of one. For whatever reason, the action of the excal suspend long a's seem better than other jerkbaits. On my home lake, I can fish a point with a lucky craft and zero, go back and jerk it with the excalibur and slam them! I think getting the internal parts correct is the hard part because I don't know about you, but I'm not willing to sacrifice one of the few I own for the sake of getting at the internals to find weight placement, etc. I'm putting it on the top of next winter's lures to create; hanging up luremaking until it's time to store the boat again. I'd be willing to sell you a floating version. I think to make it suspend requires a touch more weight but it'll give you a sacrificial lure.

I'm looking forward to seeing which minnow you're talking about, I can't place it in my memory...

Excalibur made several baits that were copies (licensed, I believe) of other well-known baits, such as the Super Spook, Spook Jr, etc. Was the excalibur a copy of bomber's long A minnow?

Thanks,

Tristan

it is a copy of the bomber long A minnow, it is the basic shape, but i like the paint job alot better on the excalibur minnow because the bomber lures look fake or they are transparent and i do not like transparent paint jobs. I only like some of them, depends on the color of the paint. I dont know how to post a pic on here yet, but if you tell me how i will get it on as soon as possible, thanks

wow, big brown, my apologies. You can find them cheaply on ebay if you type in "excalibur" in the search subject line and narrow down categories to fishing. You may also try variations of this "bomber long a", "bomber excalibur", etc. You may also want to try one of your local tackle dealers because if they order from "jerry's sporting goods (JSC)" or one of the other typical wholesalers out there, there MAY be some closeout specials still available. It's been at least 3 years since I've been associated with any tackle retail so that may prove futile.

The one thats really hard to find for me is the Excalibur Smithwick rogue in KVD's signature series, the lavender shad or whatever the correct name for the color is, its purple on the back. It's a good thing i can paint my own, but i lost the last one i had before i tried to paint one so im working off memory.

If someone had the original color suspending long A or a good picture of it. I could paint some new suspending long A's to match it (do they still make suspending long A's?).
