Dressed, made-up, and ready for prom.

Don't underestimate what the right dress and lipstick can do.

We should outlaw those things as providing an unfair advantage. :lol:

But Serioulsy, What advantage does the swivel on the tail treble provide?

Ray, I find it does 3 things that I like.

1. it allows the rear treble to rotate freely to help reduce leverage against the hook caused by the fish.
2. it helps reduce short hits because it adds length.
3. it adds a little bit of weight to the rear of the lure, making it sit down a little in the water.

Of course I could be wrong about the whole concept. But I do like the concept of tinkering.

I'm getting ready too. I found my paddle and a rod that I used to salt water fish with. I'm good.

That is some good thinking on all 3 reasons. Thanks Brad.

Tim, I found that most paints, unless you apply them with an air-brush, will go on too heavy. Also, most won't hold up unless you clear coat over them. Adding even more weight. Lately I've been using crushed up dewberry juice, mixed with the urine of the rare and endangered 2 headed, hibiscus sand fly. But not the females. Only the males urine works. I've also experimented some with permanent markers.
