  1. I ran into a similar situation, I added a second bead and no more problems. My .02.
  2. If one person was always right he/she would own the fishing industry, but that is not the case!! We all have had great years followed by not so great years.... as conditions change from year to year so does the fishing.

    Gill Detail

    That is really nice!
  4. I am glad people are excited about this modification... would it help if I did a video exactly how I build them?
  5. Changing wire size on so on you can get to where you need to be, but it is all about your exact needs. give us specifics and most people can probably help. current is tough too fish but cfs and flow rates do not very in mathematics. Then it boils down to blade, type, size and total weight.
  6. Tuna, the best way I have found is build to what exactly you want to the style of fishing you do!! I personally have my spinners built from .23-.73 ounces and most of the time I just slow roll them to were the blades are just turning, sometimes the blade stops and starts ( on purpose ) that is where I get my bites as far as speed. Both large and Smallmouth eat it that way for me..... best large just over 6lbs... best Smallmouth just over 4lbs slow rolling spinners.
  7. when you say inline this is what I think of.... Inline Spinner Blades Brass Finish Lacquer Coated Sizes 1 - 6 - Barlow's Tackle (barlowstackle.com) blade thickness to me does not matter as much as target weight of the total spinner, I think that once you really get into building spinners instead of buying them, you will find blade size to weight is very important. it allows you to fish it the way you need to..... mass produced ones have a tendency to be just around what you need not dead on. My .02
  8. Not saying your math is right or wrong, but there is a difference between book and actual life. The Colorado is still stable and stays in a straight line on a retrieve even with a 7.1 reel, with the math saying it would run to the right is not so. simple solution... make the the modification and put it on a tuned 1.5.... it will track straight.
  9. glass or plastic or metal?
  10. don't have the money/time to do more.....I am on call 24/7/365..... it is just what I can do with the time I have left over. So I wonder how many ideas have gone by the way side just because. The funny thing is I have a few more things that I am working on that are actually working versions.
  11. here are some videos, not the best but you get the idea. https://youtu.be/KPsVzycUTf0 https://youtu.be/YY0KLwPxOkY https://youtu.be/XjENNdaTFR4
  12. I think it was just a push in the right direction.
  13. Yes I have videos, I don't know if they will download here ( I haven't tried to ) they are not the best but you can get the whole feel of how it runs for each bait.
