how do I silence the rattles on a crank?

5 posts in this topic

I am getting a few clear cranks (Normans) and I have seen other custom ones, but they don't rattle, the rattles are still there they just don't move, shake, make noise.

How do I do that and if I have to put a hole in it how do I close it back up.

thanks

You can use a bit of epoxy clay....get it at Wal-Mart in the auto parts section. You just mix part A with part B and it will harden to a rock in 15 minutes....sand smooth, done deal. I have done this to lures before only I drilled a hole and then poured the bb's out........not sure where the Normans store the bb's though so it might not be possible with this plug.

You'll be able to see the weight cavity in a clear bait, drill a hole and put in some epoxy to fix the rattles. Remember they are also the ballast so if you glue them off center..... I tried it a couple of times but gave it up as a bad job and too much work for the benefit. If you want silent, I say use a wood crankbait.
