I'm still in and still having fun. My blanks are turned and I need to get my butt down to some salt water so I can check out the action and nail down the weighting. Once that is done, I'll finish them, water test them again, and get them over to Roc.

I started with 13. I lost one to through drilling, so I'm down to an even dozen. I've only had one get trashed so far, and I'll probably loose one more during water trials, (unless I'm real lucky in guessing the wieghting). So If I continue through the process and don't scrap any more, I should be able to participate in the mini swap because my yield will be 11. Even if I end up with 10 and can't participate in the mini swap "at this time", I'm willing to swap plugs with any builder. I'm relatively new at this and I learn by example, so whatever examples I have helps me improve. In another 10 years, or so, I might actually make a plug that catches fish....Maybe the grandkids will benifit......For now, I'm having fun and waiting for the fish to return to the river.

I'm in for 10, 9+1 for striperjim, I'll keep an eye on this thread to see if anything changes, but the first 10 are turned/weighted/sealed and hanging.

i dont see your situation as being a whinebag at all mully. your only one person and can only do so much with what resources you have. that goes for all of us. we all have families that need our attention also. i would love to see you in at least for the original 9...i think if roc needs to sort out one or two cases differently he will. you dont want to miss out on this, and to be honest..i was really looking forward to one of your plugs...your building is better than you may think.

I'm still in - I'm out of town this week but I already proto-ed mine and plan on priming and weighting this weeknd - I like the idea of the mini swap - whoever is in for 9 or 10 +1 so be it . I'm OK for the extra one- So Redhead only gets (and has to make) 7 or 8. I'm sure he's Ok with that.

Mully, Hope you reconsider. It's all about fun and I think the mini swap is a great alternative. It's all about fun guys.

OK this is how I see it so far:

Roccus IN
Zeema IN
Jimi4290 IN
Mully OUT
Gunnysniper IN
Jollymon IN
Ed White IN
All about fishing OUT
MikeCC... ??
Redhead7 IN

I haven't seen any follow up posts by MikeCC. So I believe he is only one
in question. Please post a follow up if this doesn't look right to anyone. If
this is right I guess it would be 7 + 1

Let's go with 8 + 1 and figure for mike to be in, until we hear otherwise.
End of April, deadline and we all get to fish some new plugs when the spring run starts!
