Rubber Fins/tails For Swimbaits

Recommended Posts

I've recently started making wooden swim baits. I was wondering where I can find rubber fins/tails, i'd like to use them over using bristles.

Most guys that build swimbaits mold their own.

The tails on my Mattlures Gills, MS Mini Slammers, etc. all look like the same material used to make any other plastic worms or creatures.

Slammers, yes.

 

Matt uses something different now, much more durable than others.

I'm still on my second tail, after three years.  The only reason the 1st tail got shredded was because I was pike fishing, lol.  If I was making my own baits, I guess I wouldn't worry about it too much.  Matt, on the other hand, has a reputation of making some of the finest baits on the market.  Any slight improvement is icing on an already perfect cake.

Plastisol comes in different levels of hardness, for a swimbait tail I would try the saltwater formula.
