I especially like the convex/concave blade. Are those bullet weights? Where do get the blades? I'd love to make some of those. They will definitely be in the mouth of trout.....first cast

I have a ton of stainless wire and have been thinking I should it into spinners. Seeing those makes me want to follow through. Thanks for the motivation. On the search for blade now.

I love inline spinners.  They in my opinion are the most reliable and consistent producer of fish, especially trout.

Thanks you. Have you ever worked with luremaking.com out of Ontario? They have some cool pre painted blades that are pretty cool.

A couple more questions: Do you use the split ring for more action on the dressed treble? Are those bullet weight bodies? Is there a bead between the body and the twisted eye?

RE: I did a little bending this weekend.
Theses are made from a modified jig mold.  Yes the split ring i use them as much as possible, I have always felt it increases hook ups and action of the bait.  Plus it allows for easier field hook changing.  There is a bead between the blade and lure body and a lot of the time I put one on the front of the blade.  the blade turns smoother up against the bead.  If you look closely you will see the body is weighted off center. My thinking is it should keep the lure up righted while fishing it.  I'll know more once I get to trout fishing.  I didn't want to cut up my mold to much till I could see how it was going to work.  However that said I have modified several mold in the last couple weeks.  My Bat jig with the blade is awesome least I think so.

I usually buy state side, I've had stuff held up at customs to many times.  Plus I could be mistaken but I think jansnetcraft is more cost effective.

Play around a bit with all the blades and options

I like the safety pin spinnerbait allot

And found out that thinking out of the box works on the local small mouth bass population

Although I still have a long way to go to catch up with Q's painting talents.

Those look great.  
The painting is all about practice and having the right brush at the right time.  One of these days I'm going to shut the fluid bed down for a while and paint me some cranks.
