    That's a sh- load of questions packed, but here it goes.

    No, WE dont use allumilite. This is a hard glide bait.
    No, I dont use any top coat on the baits until clear coat (final process).
    Thank you, regarding the flames.
    Yes, I did research on real flame, but Ive painted in the past. I researched for spraying real flame vs. painting.






    ....Ive been involved in artwork in some shape or form since I can honestly remember. Sinnce then Ive experimented, and studied just about every medium out there. I went to college for fine art, media art, history, and graphic design.

    That being said, Im best with my hands. So, I got smart and became a carpenter at 15yrs old. Another skill that to this day has not only put food on my plate, but also put me through college. A trade that wasn't exactly my chosen path, but pays pretty damn good if you know what you're doing.

    Nute did a great job on paint...my boy Darren G did a great job carving this thing out...I know he has some other things in the works but i can't speak on it...these are only 75 a pop and the craftsmanship is definitely worth it...we'll see if the fish want to play this weekend..

    Gotta say the action is dope. The movement is mostly in the reel pump which is awesome for such a smaller glide bait. Good ish Nute and Darren G

    Excellent quality! My thing is soft plastics because making and modifying is fast and easy and the results usually catch fish. Bet yours do to!
