After quite a search, I have found a local supplier of Jelutong. I wanted to try some but the smallest piece they have is 8/4 x 12" x 12' at a cost of about $75. So, before I take this leap, I'd like to hear some opinions.
I know that some manufacturers like Lee Sisson are using it in place of balsa because it has the same properties, but is more durable. I'd be using it to make my version of the old bagley BB-4 that I use for Musky. Any opinions on Jelutong would be appreciated. Thanks.

Lee Sission uses it to make his lures. If it is good enough for him, then it is good enough for all of us. Lee has forgotton more than all of us put together know when it comes to crankbaits.
