Mark,

I'll be interested after the holidays. 

If you have a chance, could you please send me one of your modified lead heads so I can try to make a mold for you out of Bondo.  If it works, I may ask for one of each sizes and make a few molds because I'm not sure how long bondo would last with the pouring of lead.

Dear Mark,

http://vonborks.org/cedar_plug.html
"From a fluid/aero dynamics viewpoint, like in a wind tunnel smoke test, one can see the laminar flow around the plug, in this greatly simplified example we used a standard streamlined tear drop, an elongated plug would exhibit similar characteristics. The end result is a distinctive wave with a bit of turbulence (xxxxx) within the trailing wave; it is that turbulent wave that predator fish’s lateral lines (motion sensors) detect (and at a considerable distance) triggering the attack response ending in a hook-up…"

That's why your plugs work, right?

Mark , what is the top speed these plugs can be trolled at. I am looking for something that will work at 12 knots. Also is one length better at high speed if they will work. Thanks Joe

I have got Mark's plugs.
It is really a piece of art.
They have nothing common with many plugs have been producing.
Its another level of craftsmanship.

As a new hobby lure maker, I must say.........your work is gorgeous.  Also, sanding down those egg weights is ingenious!  Great work.

Thanks for your compliment!!!

I turn them and the sanding scares me. I have worked very hard to capture chips and dust, wear a mask and gloves. Be careful too.
