Favorite Spinnerbait

Jig it, spin it, buzz it, if it's got a wire or a lead head, it can and will be discussed in here.

I make my own. Solid brass beads , never hollow or plastic. 60-80lb Lazer Sharp swivels. Shrink tubed wire ends and twists.

Go to youtube and look up my channel, same as my screen name. I have a video showing how to make a lock bend loop for a spinnerbait swivel, this will eliminate the need for shrink tubing on your bait. I do like your design but on anything under 3/4oz there is simply too much weight on the blade shaft which kills vibration.

The reason I shrink tube every end I can is to prevent snags. I like your desing too, but the Hagen's machine I use makes bends and wraps in no time flat and it looks very professional. I used to use the round nose pliars also, but the Hagen is hard to beat.
I don't make any spinnerbaits less than .7 oz ( the small minority) and up. Up to about 5 oz.

Thanks.
I have not sold any I have made. I've given a bunch out to a bunch of the guys I fish with though for testing over the last couple of years . Before the spinnerbaits I usually made and used in-line spinners. But then I found big spinnerbaits realy do well in our weeds here ( just about the only structure on our chain) , so of late I have been doing as many spinnerbaits as spinners.
