Been trying to dial in the pattern on some top waters, but finding good photo references has been an issue. Painted a few this morning and I'm getting close, would love some feedback and maybe some pictures if some of you guys have the original RI baits in this pattern. I have had a lot of requests for it just not sure I'm close enough to the original yet. I also will need a larger glitter to duplicate the pattern, but I'm more worried about the colors right now.

Not bad. It looks a little green/yellow on the back than some. Other than that I'd say good job. Also most have big silver flakes on the side. It's my favorite topwater color.

Theres a pretty good pic of a vixen in that pattern/color on EBAY. From a color standpoint, I think you hit the nail on the head, but like you said, you are going to need bigger silver glitter. Also, the original doesn't have the double blood gil. Looking good Brad thumb

But needs the large silver flake on the sides

I like The Zara spook silver flitter color better than the vixen color. It's a darker shade. Both work just fine.

Have seen flicker shad at ONE shop... At Amistad... and if you weren't throwing it you we getting 1/2 the bites... was crazy.

that being said... It looks a little yellow to me... And like you said, that great big giant chunky glitter...

still looks good though

That's the new one, not the original.

They changed it up between the versions.
