Blades For Crankbaits

8 posts in this topic

I am looking for a blade close to the blade on the bottom of the waddle bat . Does anyone know who may sell those ? I may have to try to punch out a few . Thanks for the help.

I'm working on duping a waddle bat also... Try #1 wasn't a complete bust but it wasn't really right either. Working on take 2 now. Im making my own blades. Looking at the Ichiban tackle website will give you a good look at how the 'bats are set up. It appears in several of the pictures that the blade has a very gentle upsweep... If i'm correct i think i'll have it right next time.

Waddle bat #2 is a lot better. I sealed the nudie and took it out swimming this morning. Result: caught a 2 pound bass! The action is pretty good but I still need to fiddle with the bill diameter a little and definitely the blade needs some adjustment but I'm on the right track!! I'm fairly new to all this but catching a fish on an unpainted lure is kinda cool!!

No, it's thru wired but the way you have to do it to get the cup washers and blade on is a little tricky. Next one i make i'll post a picture of how i'm doing it.
