Hey guy's I have some old bagleys lures I am concidering using, I would like to re- clearcoat them if I decide to. The lures in question are bagleys square lip killer b's, does any one know what these are worth? I don't really want to use them if there real valuble. My question is what should I use to coat them if I decide to? Because if I dont coat them the paint will chip very esaily I am sure.

TM. you can recoat with Devcon. I would check to see if they have any value first if you are looking to collect them. If you just want to fish them and are not concerned with any potential collector value, then lightly sand to smooth out and apply a light coat of Devcon.

I have no idea on the value but like SpoRoller said you can use devcon to recoat them.

I would coat them in Evirotex, It will add less weight to the bait.

My suggestion to you would be to go out on ebay and see what they have and what they are getting for them. I would not refinish any of the ones that you are considering to sell. Bagleys are underweighted. Most balsa baits are. You could use 4 coats of Devcon and the baits would still float and perform. But I will be honest with you. I think that too many people that really don't understand anything about crankbaits are parting with their money for nothing. I have seen one BBII go for $68.00 on ebay. If you ask me he would have been much better off buying 3 of Tim and Jeff's baits.

Now there is an idea! Ride the Classic tide and sell them all on Ebay while folks still want them and don't know why. Then you can go out and get some good custom crankbaits, maybe even have money left over.

Skeeter I know what yor talking about I have sold BB for much more than 68.00, the baits in question are bagleys Killer B square Lips. I like the body style and action and there are really no comprable lures out there. If they are worth more than 15ea I am not going to recoat them. I just wanted to recoat the ones I was going to fish.
