Lookin good.  Are you making or buying the screw locks?

I'm buying the screw locks. Then I either powder coat the lead or I found some adhesive that I dip them in for the plain lead/clear coat

I've always found the screwlocks tear the bodies up pretty quickly. I now use the Damiki hooks with the clip that always you to Texas rig em. Its quicker to rig em and they last a little longer.

I've had issues with spring lock if they didn't have a center pin but never an issue with one. Went from one fish per fluke with weight shank to 4-8 with spring Lok. Frogs from about 1-2 to 3-5.
