Recommended Posts

Hi! Where does everyone order their polycarbonate for custom crankbait bills? What thickness do you all find works best? Thanks!

My local Lowes has started carrying it. If not find a glass shop. You want .060 which is 1/16 th. Make sure it has a plastic coating on it to protect it from scratching. Plus you can draw on it to lay out your lips.

McMaster Carr is where I end up  ordering some typically (along with other odds and ends).  A 12 x 12 sheet of 1/16th with run just under 5 bucks.

Glass guy in town gives me a deal on his cut off ends. Last time I got a 6ftx1ft and a bunch of other strips 2inch and wider of 1/8 for 5$

yes sir, check with your local glass shops for scrap lexan/poloycarbonate. most shops will throw small pieces away as soon as it is cut, so talk with them.

I'll third that! My local glass shop let me come take a look and gave me all sorts of pieces of polycarbonate.  In return I made them a larger lure for display with their company name on it, just for fun.  They were so pumped, I have basically an unlimited source for lip material now!

Another spot I have got some from is a plastic's distributor.  They had a bunch of cut offs that they let me buy for cheap.
