gotcha.

thought it would be more of a surface/diving plug looking at the type of lip it has.

out of curiosity,what kinda long green would that go for?

also,whats the length?

HH

It’s 8”. I would sell it for $30 shipped

when they started making the Pikes in china I bought one..skinned it...the whole head is plastic and they married the wood body to the head...thought the whole plug was wood.

very true,thats where the water gets in and they crack.

of the 4 original new versions I bought 3 of them cracked,i fixed them and then I found another one,which cracked too

I sanded it down to bare and found what you found.

I sealed it,painted it and took it fishing,caught a 50 inch fish with it.

the wood seems to not be sealed but the white stuff under the paint is what they tried to waterproof them with failed because it gets in around the lips slot and eyelet then to the spot where they are married and then crack.

I hang them and apply heat for a while to dry them out then epoxy then crack then scuff and epoxy the whole plug,it worked and they are still good to go.

These are a horrible product compared to the originals. 
it would be better to look for warrior pre 80’s. Then get them refurbished

 

Ine I’m redoing for a friend.
