I guys!I tested my foam cranks a week ago!!They run very nice!!!!!!I tested them up to 10.5 mph and no blow out!!!!so I think I have a perfect musky lure!I have made a shallow running version of it and have only tested it casting yesterday and it was looking pretty good!!!I think that it will run somewhere between 4 and 6 ft.so things look good for my baits and I wanted to shared my joys whit you!!!
I would like to send you a pic of it but I cant do a pic 31.9 kb whit my digital cam and i dont know how to reduce a pic so...maybe next time!!!(dident have that problem whit the old tu!!???)

Dan, is the lip slot cast in or do you cut them in afterwards? It appears to be very sharp and clean.

You must have added a space or left out a character, most likely the closing ].
Add a ] to the second IMG, above, and you'll see the picture.
Here's tha picture with the ] added;

WOW!!!! If these beauties don't put muskies in the boat then something is totally wrong. Awesome job!!!! Great design and I can't say enough about those excellent paint schemes. Love your stuff.
I thing there will be a warning on the musky waters you fish....LOL
