Crankbaits & Jerkbaits

Recommended Posts

Lengths and weights listed on the package?

Would the length include the diving lip? Is the weight without the hardware (hooks & split rings)?


Not that it makes a $h1t of a difference, just curious.

I do not believe there is any real industry standard as far as length & weights go.

That said,  I generally feel the weight of cranks & topwaters is sort of close, spinnerbaits weights seem to vary wildly as do some jigs.

As for over all length, again no standard, but I don't think most include the lip length to the published / packaged length.

I don't have a problem with it.  Seems to go hand in hand with the anglers who don't carry a scale or camera.

Jerkbaits and crankbaits do not count the lip as part of the overall length and the weight is with hardware on. Spinnerbaits and jigs are a different story as the weight is basically the head size not including the skirt or even the paint and that is why they vary so wildly. You will have a little difference on the crank weights because of the finish as well.
