Looking for a few butterfish tins in the 1.5 - 2oz range. No hooks just the tins.

I do make several tins but nothing I would call "butterfish" tins.  The closest things I make to that description are pictured below.

"Flat Tops".  Basically a copy of Hopkins "shorty" style.  Chrome plated lead or painted lead only.

Next is the "Bluefish Busters", the fat version.  I do these in plated lead, painted lead or tin.  The tin versions weigh 1/3 less than pictured.

Last one is this "peanut bunker".  I make these in tin only but will add accent colors like green or chartreuse.  Tail colors can vary.  The largest is just under 1 oz .

Hope this helps.

Sorry, not chrome plated, the tin version with no hooks. Just 4 of the jigs. What's the cost?

Sorry to disappoint you but I don't make those in tin.  Painted  or plated lead only.

I do make these in tin.  The largest weighs just under 1 oz in tin.

Another possibility is these.  The largest fat one weighs 1 oz in tin.

Oh okay. I like the Shorty's a lot. How much for 4 in lead no hooks not painted? 2 oz.

Flat Top prices:

#1, 3/4 oz = 3.50 ea

#2  1 1/2 oz = 4.00 ea

#3, 2 oz = 4.50 ea

#4, 3 oz = 5.25

Take .50 off each for no hooks.

Shipping is extra.
