I am really proud of this 9 inch crappie patern glide bait that I build. I tested it in my pond . Here are the finding. the sink rate takes about 11 seconds to drop one foot, the second test. On a straight retrieve with no action from the rod the bait will swing from right to left at least two feet , total of 4 feet span wider than Amma Bamma glide bait. Does it glide
Ho yah easly 3 feet. This bait is going to LOTW this year. I am pumped up I cannot fall to sleep. You guys are the best when I started thinking about building baits I really taught I would stink at it.

Hillbilly I took your advise and done my final balancing in the sink. It just simply works

Thanks again


PS Amma Bamma is atop notch glide bait, no pun intended. I own 3 of them

Never heard of the amma bamma . I looked it up and your bait is similar. Like your paint better personally. Why do you think your bait has a wider glide? What is different in the build? Weight , shape or something else?
