I like throwing smaller spinnerbaits. One of my favorites is the 1/8 ounce Strike King models.

The specific head and skirt combo I prefer comes with a single diamond colorado blade. I know I can easily change it out to a small willowleaf blade.

My question. I actually prefer an old style 3/8 ounce Strike Pro Model that is no longer in production. It was the double willowleaf, clear coat, blue glitter blades and blue glimmer skirt.

With the 1/8 model is there a simple method to add a second, tiny, willowleaf blade to the wire arm of the bait and do you think it will track okay in the water? If so, what supplies are actually needed?

Edited to add - and since I'm asking is there a simple method to add a clear coat and some glitter to the blades?

Thank you in advance!

Do you have a picture or drawing where you want to add the second blade?
You probably need a properly sized clevis and a couple beads.

If you are not mass producing the spinners, get some nail polish with glitter. Cheap, and dries very hard.

Without a simplified drawing this is the best I can do.

I can't help with the fix but I have one or two of those and they do catch fish.

I can help with the fix. I have all the items needed to make any of the changes you would like to make. I would thing it would NOT be cost effective to purchase all the things you need to make a couple of baits. If you are wanting to make this a hobby then I will help you do that. Just send me a PM. and I will be more than glad to help you.

I only do living rubber so I also need a picture of that blue skirt to match it as close a possible.
