How do we create a high quality custom lure? Well first, our process starts with a high quality blank. There are several used here at the shop, notably Dinger, Predator Bass Baits, and Lure Colour Studio. Each bait batch is tested before painting begins, and then the airbrushing is custom designed and layered for each unique pattern. We use drying racks, and heat sources to improve drying time and layer cohesion. Because it’s a small business, all lures are sprayed upon order. Turnaround time is roughly 14-20 days, and a bit more around holidays and the pre-tournament season rush.
Once the bait has been completely airbrushed, a triple epoxy and sealer process begins. This portion takes roughly 24 hours to get to the point where any excess paint and sealer can be removed from all eyelets. This process ensures that you end up with a lure that not only looks good, but is strong enough to last . This triple epoxy sealer process further ensures that you get the highest quality custom lure possible. And it also keeps your lure from chipping or cracking as easy as some of the other stuff on the market today.
Now the hardware gets added. There's no profit on this end for hardware, you pay what we pay for the kind of split rings and treble hooks you want. But there's comfort in knowing that you won't have to re-adjust anything or upgrade once you've purchased these lures. The basic standard on all outgoing hardware (except Pipsqueaks) includes VMC treble hooks and Owner split rings. Hardware upgrade package options are included on all applicable pages.
