Gambler Ninja Spin Like Spinnerbait

I am interested in making my own version of this spinnerbait.  Does anyone happen to know the size of the blades used on this lure?

I've made them before, it depends on what size but on a 3/8oz bait with 3 blades I use a size #3 bottom, a size #4 middle, and a size #6 top. For a 1/2oz bait I would go with a #4, #5 and a #7, you need to remember when using tomahawk blades the odd sizes,3,5, and 7 will point to the right and the even sizes, 4,6, and 8 will point left. Because of the design of the blades, to get 3 of them going the bottom blade is the odd one but it gives the bait a unique look, personally, I always liked the baits made with the tomahawk blade but they aren't popular as they have very little vibration, these are clear water blades and I can tell you from experience that in clear water they work great but the lack of vibration doesn't go well in stained water.

Thanks for the tip smalljaw67.  I planned to build them for clearwater situations so your feedback actually validated my plans.  Appreciate the response!

You should be able to get tomahawk blades from Jann's Netcraft.

Janns  used to only carry 1 size, a #4 I believe, I used to get them from Lure Parts Online which was Stamina at the time and then Barlows but Barlows used to only have the hammered blades, they may have more by now. I may have some left but the ones I have will be smooth finish, not hammered.

LPO has them.  I already had seen them and had the size chart printed but I could not tell the size based on the pics.

 

Thanks
