  1. Let us know what you figure out.
  2. JD Mudbug, Thank you. That is interesting info. It kind of confirms what I found when I tried to copy the lure. Looking at the lure, it looks like a capsized boat, with the "inverted hull" shedding water all the way down to the almost flat belly. I think this is what makes it so stable at any speed. Thanks again.
  3. JD, Do you know what plastic was used in the original Speed Traps? We used to call them egg shells, because they were so delicate, but they caught fish.
  4. Maybe try adding some heat stabilizer every time you cook a batch, or add some new to an existing batch.
  5. Dave, Would having a longer tail stem, the part leading to the circular tail, reduce the tail's affect on the body?
  6. This is an oooold post. 2008
  7. I use runny super glue to seal my balsa baits, two coats.
  8. Man, all this badge stuff has me dazed and confused, like trying to figure out a new smartphone. Hahaha
  9. You might try flattening the clevis a bit, so the blade rotates tighter to the shaft. I'm guessing you can bend the ends back to the right angle and still have room for the blade to swing.
  10. I have found that, for me, the courser salt affect the color less. So I use Kosher salt. It's not perfect, but it helps.
  11. If you get the core plastic hot enough, around 325, it will bond. But the nice thing about core shot worms is that they seldom come apart, because the core is full enclosed by the outer plastic.
  12. Any blades I've powder coated came out much heavier that the original. I use blade dip now, or sharpies.
