The Jointed Swimmer Challenge:   

 

  • You make 3 jointed swimmer plugs - all the same.  
  • The plug needs to be at least 5 inches long or more 
  • You must take a video of the plug once it is complete to show the action of the plug and post it to this thread (I will send a PM to all participants once we get closer to deadline and put all submissions in one post)
  • Everyone votes on the Best Plug (ex. Action, shape, paint, look, etc.) 
  • Winner of the best plug gets 1 plug from each builder including keeping one that won 
  • The remainder plugs (2 ea.) will be a random drawing and treated like a plug swap until everyone has selected 2 choices. 

 

This will start November 1st and end on February 1st.  Starting on February 2nd we will vote and do the swap on the other 2 plugs.  Perfect opportunity to work on some plugage through the winter months.

What is a jointed swimmer? Not trying to be obtuse here, but....for clarity's sake:

Are we talking a 2 piece metal lip? Would a flapping tail count? Etc. ?

2 piece, metal lip and no flap tail doesn’t count.

Does it have to be a metal lip, or will any jointed swimmer qualify?

Let’s make this one with a metal lip.

Also does it have to be only 2 pieces?

 

Can be as many pieces as you want.

I'll jump in this one this time. Just want to make sure I have everything straight, jointed swimmer with a lip so no jointed gliders or anything like that, has to have a lip?
