They look nice Greg. Are they the first jointed ones you have made? When do you hope to try them out?

Andy Webster Very Happy

hot ass as they are also known Very Happy or firetail but i think the previous is a better description

i have seen these in the flesh now and they are on par with most of the lures you buy from small scale builders, in terms of quality against commercial lures like the ace ones you can still get they are finished to a much higher standard so hats of to greg for these



oh one thing when you build more sign the things and name them before you etex them its a small thing but it kind of makes the lure seem more customy well in my eyes at least Embarassed

they work brilliantly

first cast to check the action mine got nailed, sadly the pike came adrift. the action is a fair old wiggle with a lot of body roll and it was tripping the bottom in 7ish feet of water when twitched, it ran true from the off which is an evens prospect for most cranks.

so all in all highly recomended

it did but it wouldnt work properly on an axiom 100lb braid and 1.2mm leader, with a lighter set up i expect it to be a bit like a manns or big s so it will be a winner

the only lure set up i took worked against it being so heavy and dulled everything down, to the point of at a pause it sank like a brick nose 1st.
