Another Salty's kit
exclusive and our newest! Classic lines of yesteryear with a computer
Now a 3 Oz
size, 7" long cypress body, and stainless steel thru-wired this is a copy of an original
1926 "bassoreno" body,
with the heavy duty updated through wiring for saltwater!
will swim with a nice darting action from side to side. These were fish slayers
and we've re-created them!
All kits are
sanded out to 150 grit and require minimal sanding-see the special notes
All components are included except for split rings and hooks, which we
recommend VMC 4/0 treble hooks for the belly
and either the same size treble hook on the tail or a bucktail dressed
6/0 lure or bucktail stub on the tail.
This lure is an intermediate kit. It requires minor
sanding, gluing of belly grommets/lead/eyes/etc, and painting/finishing.
These kits are all turned on our dedicated kit cnc machine and drilled
with precision and duplication second to none!
Can be painted with
Salty's Lure Paint, Createx Air brush
paints, or with acrylic paints and a small brush
from AC Moore,
let them dry thoroughly and coat with a few coats of
clear spray paint or brush with epoxy etc in thin coats for more
Lures need to be finish sealed to prevent water intrusion. More
information on our free lure forum linked above.
We carry a full line of epoxy topcoats, hooks, paint, etc here:
Special notes on finishing this lure.
It is recommended that you very lightly "debur" sand the edges of
the face of the lure using light finger pressure with 220 sandpaper so that you don't remove any stock.
We have lightly deburred the nose of these by hand with a miniature
Don't use a real thick coat of epoxy on these, keep them lightweight,
and always use a loop knot on the front, never tie direct.
Please read the pictorial and front swivel/nose loop setting on this
lure should be vertical.
