Phantom Tackle, a soft plastic company out of Garland used to pour these craw worms with rattle chambers. They closed up shop 10+ years ago and I have never found a contact to acquire the molds. If you know of anyone who can create a mold from an existing pour, please pm me. TIA!

I might be wrong but I think www.pouritmold.com could do it, but it looks like it definitely wouldn't be cheap, it's $50 an hour for "CAD Product Design" plus $345+ for making the mold, as well as the cost of the blank mold itself.

The only, and most important, thing missing are the rattle chambers in the claw. It's basically a pocket designed to hold round rattles.

The only current craw lure I can think of with a built in claw chamber and resembles the Phantom is the Yamamoto/Kinami Psycho Dad

The Riobaits, the Magnum road kill, and the BBB big craw are definitely big enough that you could push a small 3mm or 4mm rattle into the body

Rattle colllar on the hook with any plastic craw would be another option
