Title Swimming Danny
Description Taking it for a swim

Two things happen to a unsealed plug, neither of them good.
first as the wood absorbes water (through the through wire hole and along the belly gromets) it begins to gain weight, as it gains weight, alot of the original action is lost.
Secondly, in the process of gaining weight, the wood is swelling, as it swells it will pop the paint/finish right off of the plug....This usaly starts at the belly gromets and spreads down the length of the plug.
As far as chips go, that is the beauty of epoxy, it tends not to chip as easily, it can and does, but not as easily....
Even the ones I varnish, still hold the paint, even after being scarred from the hooks, sometimes the more beat up they are, the better they fish...
