I've seen a couple sites that have the RC 1.5's but I was wondering if anyone has bought them from one of these sites before. I'd just like to conformation knowing that they run straight and are similar to the RC 1.5s. Also interested in the RC 1.5DDs

I've ordered blanks from ebay and bustinbassbaits, in my experience you're going to have to tune most of the blanks you get. You'll get a few that run true without doing anything to em. As for the best, the quality is about the same all over from the blanks that I have bought. Someone else might know of somewhere to buy quality blanks, I only bought blanks so I can practive painting cranks, I think you have more control over the final result if you make your own. Someone else might have some info on where to buy quality blanks

I've been buying from Mike Vann, Vanndalizer.com, I've painted and sold a dozen or so. Like all blanks they need tuning but run great and catch fish!

That's the same web address I have for him, but it won't open.
Is it me, or is it the address?

I got some in from hidden valley tackle. Painted up a sexy shad and caught a fish the 5 or 6th cast. I give it an A+. Just needed a little tuning. Great action

Mark, you may need to PM him, he's been real busy and not using the web sites. If you can't get him PM me and I can send you his email. Bob

this is by far and away the best place I have found unpaintedlures.com

Those are nice, but cost double+- what Predator Bass and Bustin Bass charge for similar baits.

That would be because they are twice as nicely built. I have ordered from them all and I will only order from unpainted lures in the future!

There is an ebay seller with the ID "unpaintedlures" and all of his blank auctions get high bids to the order of around $3/ pc. on lots of 10. I've been watching them for a while. People apparently know something about these. Unfortunately he has yet to offer 2.5s.

I've bought from others and Unpainted Lure's 1.5s are much better. They are not the same as what the other guys have. Trust me, they're worth the little extra.
