why i said there was a marked difference in swim action upon loading them.
the 3/4 oz loaded you will find swims a whole lot better that the magnum loaded which has a much longer profile and basically the same nose which originally will dive 2-3ft and trolled a foot better. but,, loaded will SINK and get down further. loading them was originally for distance and with fish hitting on top wouldn't be concerned with it sinking as it won;t take long for a hit but(hense the use of mineral spirits that is lighter than water), getting down to the strike zone has been a really good asset when loading them with water but, clearly not a good swimming plug after altering it.
Ahh, that was the confusion, sry about that. And yes, i did notice that loading the magnum really got it down which i really noted as a plus when i was fishing the sides of the jetty i go to, as i can get it down right where the bass lurk. I have not tryed the 3/4 ones yet, so i can not compare the action of the magnum to that of the 3/4. But with the magnum i only put 5 cc's on normal tap water, and it still maintained good action.

The reason I did not buy one was the price, I never thought I would have thought a lure was to cheap money wise.
I have a few Yo Zuri magnet lures that swim real nice with good weight. I quess the magnet shifts for extended casting them back again for premium swimming, well so they say.
I still think there is nothing like a good wood lure though
I know these Bombers are not wood, what I ment is- I think wood has the best fluid movement(nothing like it) as long as you have a good one anyways.
What I ment about loading it is How-Where? I know inside but how do you get what ever inside the bait? Years ago we used to add weight or shot to some lures by drilling a hole and then plugging it. After it was how I liked it I would seal it. Is this done in the same process or is it made to be loaded? If drilled where is the best place to drill these things?
I know I used to have some smaller Bomber stuff(freshwater) but that was all stolen a few years back.(not one on hand to look at)

You load it the same way you would a redfin. Simply heat up a sewing needle over a fire untill it is warm enough to puncture the plastic. Then simply take the needle and make a tiny hole above the head, then load it with whatever you want.
