I recently started bending wire and making my own skirts in the last week. I finally did a little product testing today.

You start making .030 to .035 with single Colorado blade and you're going to have a huge market for night fishing!

I bought in bulk from Hagens, Barlow's, and got some from Cabelas. I'm using Hagen's professional wire former for the bending.

I agree on the thin wire & Colorado blades, especially if the wire is stiff where it "sings". Great dirty water baits too!

I finally started airbrushing the powder coat and like the results. What do you think?
