Ultra minnow mold mod?
Has anyone modified an ultra minnow mold to place a crane swivel into the jig head? Would it be possible with this mold?

A longer ring stem barrel swivel might allow more clearance from the head, and they tend to be smoother spinning than cranes.

did the mod on the 1/8th size, that is the size I will use the most. Was easier than I thought after doing the initial measurements. Luckily I own a high speed detail grinder for carving decoys and plenty of carbide bits. Made the work easy and I am happy with the results. Cannot wait for the prespawn crappie and attack them with the long pole.

very nice mod on that ultra minnow. I decided to keep my production steps down and went with an imbedded swivel.

I am very pleased with the outcome and the jigs that will be tied off of this mold.
