I have two questions I would like to ask about hard plastic cranks.
First of all has anyone tried drilling a hole in one and pouring
a little paint inside, rotating it to paint it from the inside?

Second question, same as above except put glitter inside. no paint?

if ya bought the ones that are in 2 pieces and painted them b4 you glued them together. You could do it easy. Like painting RC Bodies. The one problem would be you couldnt use the rattle chambers; Because the BB's would nock off all the paint over time. But for rattle less baits it would be great. the paint would never wear off, or get scratched. But you would just have to remember to pait the paint sceam backwards. Darks then lights and fades b4 solid colors.

Coley, have you been having those Mirrolure nightmares again?

Some years back there was a plastic lure on the market which contained an oil in which glitter was suspended. Of course in a case like that, the lure would have to be designed around the concept, because of the way its action would be altered. Dry glitter or pigments in chambers...painting with syringes...self-painting lure kits with choice of colors...my head is spinning... :?
