The one I have isn't a wire through model.It doesn't have a rattle and the hook hangers look like they are twisted stainless wire thats been glued in.The bib cut is also deeper on the 90 compared to a plastic 70 I have, so I'm assuming it is timber.Does anyone know when AC's stopped being made of timber?Here's a couple of pics, the quality is a bit censored , in a bit of a rush.

It is only in the last 2 years that the AC's have gone to plastic. By all reports Anthony was having trouble keeping up with demand and spend BIG $$$$$ $$$$$ on getting the mould made so that his lures had exactly the same action as the wooden ones.

MR AC still makes timber lures for the odd "special order ", but ya have to get him when he aint busy and be prepared to wait anyway.
i picked up a few of the 60mm last year in Timber for the yella's.

Otherwise they are all mass produced in plastic these days.

Tombowler,

AC only makes his Minnows 40 & 60 Invaders in Timber now everything else is plastic/

Thats the reason you got 60mm in timber, & it took a whlie cause he's so busy making all the others, so timber kind of gets left till he gets a chance.

Thats what he told me when we were in my boat 2 weeks ago.
