The baller

The concept forced me to buy one. How big can one make a knuckleball? It kinda thumps like an Indiana blade. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1av4yD ... 5jUDM_eRlJ

An interesting concept for sure. Is the rotation or wobble random or predictable and mechanical?

It basically knuckles side to side and up and down causing the lure to shimmy. mechanical action with some random thumps up or down mixed in too. I guess water pressure and temperature could make it more or less lively. I would like to hear what it sounds like underwater. That one thumps like 10 or 12 Colorado blade. It casts like a bullet.
