Seaweed 65 has VERY kindly donated two MORE of his gorgeous plugs to help us out.  

 

Unless you're either an SOL builder--or you've swiped some of his plugs from a buddy who was lucky enough to get some of them--you probably have no idea how amazing they are. 
 

The swimmer is 7” long and tips the scales at 2 oz.  Pic cannot possibly do justice to the paint. finish and build:

As some of you know, I am a HUGE fan of his work (see https://www.stripersonline.com/surftalk/topic/744736-2018-auction-14-custom-wood-fully-sealed-handcarved-swimmer-with-spectacular-paint/ for more info) because his plugs combine "Just effin' gorgeous!" paint with "They Catch!"

 

 

The blue cloud sparkle metal lip is 8” long and weighs 2.5 oz.

Seaweed and I have had many conversations about plug builders, including Pichney and Lupo.  I've no doubt that he based this color pattern on the "light blue cloud" Lupo that I sent to him last winter, to which he added his own well-thought-out touches of full-sealing and his deft touch with light sparkles.
