Default just tested

i took some topwaters out for a freshwater test drive....mixed reults..looks like i got some tuning to do on the big pencils...the action was great lots of side to side slashing..the asses sunk nice...but they casted fair to unfair...hardly any wind and they all wanted to turn, some worse than others...need more weight in the bumb. and the nose needs to be a tad slimmer..i think. i guess ill find out next time i decide to fire up the lathe. they will rock if the winds at your back the small yellow spook type casts fine and chugs nicely.

sounds like they will work nicely. dont forget that saltwater has a different effect on bouyancy. I guess this plug buiding thing really is guess and check. It is just a shame if you put in all of that work and the things dont swim well.
good luck with them
