Hard Plastic Float-thinking out loud

1 post in this topic

I'd like some input from those of you who know about making hard plastic crankbaits. Im am wondering about making a float/bobber out of hard plastic. How would I go about doing it? recomend a method and maybe a plastic also that will not be eaten up by plastic worms. the float is balsa and has a plastic leg glued to the bottem. I was thinking of making the body as one piece and the leg as a seperate piece and then glueing. I am wondering about making the body hollow, would I just shoot plastic in a form and then slowly spin until dry to create a hollow or would I have to make the body as 2 pieces and glue them togather(which would be a way more difficult mold). OR could it be made out of some sort of less dense plastic but solid that floats? (thinking that solid wont work).
