I can make dummies in 2 parts. 1 will be for casting lead and the other for the resin shell, that's easy. The main thing will be the skirts. I will have skirts arriving here end November to beginning December. But you need the skirts to measure for the neck diameter.

I think the leads are more important than the trolling heads at this stage, You can troll any cone shaped lure behind a weight.

Ya, making a sinker mould is almost too easy. Nico, I will make one for us but I still want to pursue the lead head option for us. I got some good ideas for that.

You can buy them direct from Gladiator at the factory which is off North Coast Road, speak to Daniel.

Well here you go gents, I have managed to spend a couple of ours using some of these methods and here is the results, I got a couple of fish and am waiting for some more of the pics to come through.

There does seem to be a fair number of them around at the moment so get out there!!

Before you guys reinvent the wheel - Pulsator make a lure called the Silver fox which has a very heavy conical head - Its chrome plated brass so is very heavy and can be trolled at high speed. Whats also cool is that the head has a threaded shaft behind it with a removable female "grommet". Effectively you can unscrew the grommet and replace the skirt in seconds if you want to change colors etc.

Here's a pic of Pulsators Silver Fox I mentioned. I have two of them and plenty skirts to match depending on my preference for the day. Can trawl these while the boat is on the plane without tumbling since that head is very heavy.... They advise a chain gang which is great for the toothy critters - like wahoo.

They are about R300 unrigged then add about R100 for the chain-gang. They are rather long (about 30cm with skirt)
