What exactly is he looking for? 6th Sense's new line of crankbaits come in a variety of top notch paint schemes for a much cheaper price than a fully custom paint job.

I've been doing custom paint for over 10 years on jigs, flutter spoons and crankbaits, including work for several Elite Pro's. Our finishes are know for extreme durability with minimal thickness so baits run the way they're intended. Here's some examples of my crankbait work:
Super Shad for Billy McCaghren


Sexy Citrus Shad for Billy McCaghren


Shore Minnow for Pete Ponds


Hoochie Shad


Daddy's Money

I'm a little partial to Talon myself. smile

At the Oak Ridge Block Party Andi broke out a 1.5 crank bait Billy McCaghren sent back to Talon. According to Billy this bait had caught over 200 fish... other than just a few scratches on the bottom the paint job looked almost brand new. I've always been impressed with Andi's painting skills, but I'd have never guessed the finished product would be that durable. Even the old school RC 1.5's paint wouldn't hold up to that kind of beating... of course I always lose or break the bill off of em hitting dock poles long before I get to the 200 fish on one bait. smile

Pretty tough to beat what Eric Gandy can do. From originals to match the hatch, he is the best.

Strike King liked Gandy's work so much they put it in production.....

I can vouch for Gandy's work. First class all the way. I know several Elite pros that feel the same way.

I've never heard of original watermelon ghost craw color, but that is one sweet paint job you got there. Never seen a crankbait with that pattern.

Fellas those are works of art! I would cry if I lost one of those, it would be hard to send one into the depths without knowing if it would come back.
