sai i want a crankbait body in the style of a DT Rapala to run say DT 10. What style/size lip would determine this??

I'm not trying to be flip, but I'd just trace an actual DT-10 lip on an index card, cut it out and use it as a template for cutting a new lip from polycarbonate or circuitboard.

Agree with BobP, a template is the way to fly. The lip msmt. of a DT 10 from the rear lip tab to the front is 47.2 mm/ 1.85" (give or take a few mm's)... approx. 15.0mm/ .59" should be inside the lure body. Good luck.

you can also trace it on sheet of aluminum will give you bit help on the dive too if you dont want to weight it as much
