Yeah, this is what we needed. I have a few in progress, some small that I'm pretty sure will work, at least the test version did, and a larger one just starting the process. Pics to follow.

Thanks Jigman!

Here's a few pics

So the little white guy is an ugly tester that worked especially around the peanuts this Fall. Heavy enough to cast great, and it would weave its way back to me on a steady retrieve.

2 more copies of that one, and a bigger tester, 3/4' thick, 7ish inches long, 3-1/4 Oz as it sits there. Pure guesswork so far, need to wire it up and throw it in some water.

Wow nice @Ed White !!

 

thanks so much for sharing, I’m really liking the large size and would be interested in how it swims (or glides lol) most gliders I have seen are like the smaller size… but I always prefer bigger and heavier plugs so I’d be interested in hearing!!! Nice work! Also cool to see where you placed your weight with the pencil marks and all

Thanks for the info! I’ll have to give them a try at some point

 

Any particular findings for a shorter in height glider vs a taller? I’m thinking a trout profile vs a bluegill profile

Awesome! I'm definitely following this thread. I just dipped my toes into the world of gliders. Finished my first batch to test out this season. After the first batch, I realized I definitely need to get a router.

Couple of shots of some recent ones I did. Quick rattle can paint jobs. Top ones are 5.5 inch and 1.75 oz, next is 6 inch and 2.5 oz., jointed is 6.5 inch and 2 oz. The jointed will also work like a swimbait if you sweep the rod tip or crank a little faster. Top view of the larger one so you can see the nose and tail taper better.
