Those look great. What material did you use for the body?
Prime time just ahead for smallmouth! Thanks for the post!

The head was cast at 45 degree angle from front hook hanger to head with superplastic 1:1 volume micro balloons and the rest of body was in alumifoam. The slightly heavier head keeps lure at 45 degree angle when resting on surface with double props. It has a good metal jingle sound on straight retrieve from blades turning in opposite direction clashing together. The metal plopper version has a good sound too once you tune the blade. I used Jigskinz product to finish, takes about 2 minutes for nice looking finish. I will probably AlumiUV finish the Jigskinz chrome series eventually.
