Dieter the timber has neutral bouyancy ,the lure swims great but as you add the tow points the clear coat the bib etc it becomes negative weight ,they still swim however the movements are are a little slower and when you add the claws this also restricts the movement.They are a lure but after paying for one would you risk loosing it on a snag first cast .Lofty ???

They look good Lofty, very slick! As for risking losing it on my first cast, without a doubt mate - without a doubt! After all thats why they are called fishing lures, you use them to catch fish! -imsorry That's why I always try to have 2 of everything..... just in case I don't feel like swimming to get it back lol lol
They look great. Keep up the good work!

Cheers
Sam

Those lures would get down as deep as you like thumbsupsmilie
