One thing I notice about the plugs you and Tony built is that none of them have a lot of epoxy on the finish. Was there a reason for this?

Not many builders at that time were using the heavy epoxy. When we first started Driftwood, I remember doing the plugs with the 2 part epoxy. Mixing a small cup full and coating about 6 plugs before the mix hardened too much to use. It was time consuming and very expensive. We later went to a clear coat that covered the paint but was not a heavy or as hard as the epoxy. Most of the builders that used the heavy epoxy were not producing the volume that we were striving for and we also were concious of keeping the price of the baits down. That's why you paid $25 or more for some of the other plugs on the market.

 

You probably paid $20 for a Lefty or some others but could get a Driftwood for less than half of that. The angler had to option of paying the price for the plug that would last longer or put 3 of them in his bag at the same price. If you bumped into Spna at the 7-Eleven late at night, you could buy all you wanted out of his trunk for $5 each. Gotta love the guy.
