Your work is par excellance. Truly, a work of art. Now that you have a master mold, can you make the lure in quantity?
Your Humble Admirer,

Awesome bait? Looks great
Does it work like the Megabass Plaster of Paris-x ?

You are more then welcome axman. We will be watching for a fishing report. The finished bait with rattles sounds like a winner.

2 more quick questions, please. What did you make your mold out of and what type of resin did you cast the plug from?
I'm guessing Silicone for the mold and and Featherlite for the Lures.

i bought silicone and resine in this shop here in madrid www.feroca.com
the silicon is called silastic 3481 and must be mixed with the catalyst number 81.the mix is dry in 1 day.The resine are called feropur e 55 and feropur pr 55.It has been mixed at 50% and in 10 minutes it?s dry. I think this products are sold in scale model shops.I hope it help you!

Yes, i hope that when popper?s swimming the water go out through that holes.The other funcion is that this holes makes lighter the head.

A real beautiful lure. Excellent paint job. You do very good work. Did the balsa bait work well?

If it produces as good as it looks, you have a winner.

Welcome abord axman! That is a very nice popper. Cool design and great paintjob. Keep'm coming.

thanks again! i worked the balsa wood during a day.i had watching a lot of bass photos for face details.Lot of patience!This is my 3 popper, the first and second are in balsa wood, and they are very simples:
my first popper in "fire bass color"
and the second in "carp color"
well, i think that the last is the best.
I have too a crankbait of a very very jointed crab, but this is top secret still jejej
