Is it the custom paint, or the custom weight/action?

Ok, so there I was at Table Rock on Friday, in a snowshower (can't call me smart), throwing some painted crankbaits and rogues and had this thought: are these baits more effective because of the paint jobs or the changes in lure action caused by the aded weight? Have known painted rogues suspend more easily, but was kind of surprised by the added depth my cranks seemed to be getting...probably a good 1-2 feet deeper than factory "old" warts. This was backed up by the fact that I had to keep poking my baits out of rocks with the handy dandy telescoping lure retreiver (better get one), when I can normally poke a factory bait out with the rod.

The flex coat finish really performed well also...some fine dings and scratches, but no real loss of color showing thru, and no scratches all the way thru the clearcoat. Actually, most of the scratches were hook marks, and damage done by the aforementioned lure retreiver. These were baits I threw most of the day, for 3 days running.

Its gotta be the paint jobs. Anybody can add a suspend strip and make them go deeper. As you know, they made suspending warts also.
